FOSTERING STRONGER REGIONAL COOPERATION TO SAFEGUARD BORDERS AND BUILDING NEXT GENERATION MARITIME SURVEILLANCE CAPABILITIES

The sea has long been the single strategic space for prosperity and security. With more than 90% of world trade being conducted via the seas, the importance of safe waters cannot be emphasized further.

While maritime security and coastal surveillance priorities may differ between the nations, regional priorities remain largely the same for Southeast Asia. Growing tensions in the South China Sea and a rise in non-traditional maritime security threats – non-state insurgencies, maritime terrorism, transnational crimes, illegal fishing, smuggling, humanitarian and disaster relief, crisis management and first response operations continue to be key challenges faced by the region.

With these issues in mind, the 15th Maritime Security and Coastal Surveillance Asia 2018 conference is back! This year we will address the increasing need for closer regional cooperation, how to harness smart and advanced technology (i.e. Artificial intelligence in Defence) and building next generation maritime security capabilities to combat existing and new maritime security threats.

WHAT’S NEW THIS YEAR

Huge focus on enhancing inter and intra-agency cooperation with actual case studies presented by regional and international organisations

One full day dedicated to adopting smart technology and building next generation maritime defence capabilities, i.e. AI embedded naval systems, big data, blockchain, AUVs, USVs, UAVs, Drones etc.

A total of 13 plenary sessions, 15 roundtable discussions and 4 quick-fire presentations over two days providing attendees valuable opportunities to learn best practices from other naval/military agencies as well as engage in in-depth discussions on issues most relevant to the maritime security community in Asia
