Support Ships 2020: Enabling the Surface Fleet
Supplying the Joint Force


The 2020 Support Ships conference brings together members of the naval and joint force logistics community at a time when NATO's leading fleets are working to retain - or attain - blue water naval capability.
With the UK gearing up for the first operational carrier deployment in 2021, there has been a lot of new capability coming on tap for the Royal Fleet Auxiliary, in order to support blue water naval capability. Other nations are also moving to modernise their capability as changes to the overall threat context demand readiness for extended, high-tempo maritime operations. This conference provides an opportunity to determine what the support ship should look like if it is to adequately support the future surface fleet. Perhaps as importantly, however, it also looks at the overall supply chain, logistics and maintenance architecture that these vessels help to deliver.
