A LIFE-CYCLE APPROACH TO MULTI-ROLE VESSELS AND NAVAL POWER

Defining a future role for the OPV

Continuing its commitment to the Patrol Vessel community, OPV International will be hosted virtually from 30 September - 2 October to provide a platform for sharing expertise, strengthening existing relationships and building new ones. 

Now well established as the leading conference for Navies, Coast Guards, related maritime organisations and Industry to discuss these versatile platforms, OPV International will evaluate multi-role vessels through the lens of their whole life cycle. In doing so it can be a powerful vehicle for meaningful consensus between experts from across the community to share challenges and contribute to finding the most effective solutions.


This year across four days of presentations, panel discussions and immersive virtual networking opportunities, OPV International will discuss current and ongoing procurement programs as well as operational challenges, lessons learned and future technologies. Casting its attention towards the advent of the Digital Age for the first time, it will provide an opportunity for experts from across the various stages of the OPV life cycle and supply chain to impact the development of what is the fastest-growing sector of the Naval market.


Join us in September 2020 as we work to maximise situational awareness, upgrade inherent baseline capability and deliver a continuous patrol function for the OPV.
