Middle East navies and coast guards, together with the wider international maritime security community, will converge in Dubai this March, to discuss how they can work together to bring security to the region’s seas.
Serving as an international summit for naval officers and the entire defence industry, the Maritime Security & Offshore Patrol Week conference will bring together all the decision makers to fortify cooperation, increase maritime capabilities and security levels.
Organised under the theme of ‘Securing maritime sea routes and critical infrastructure with new platforms and through future surveillance and communication network solutions’, the event will provide a forum to enable cooperation and discourse on overcoming the challenges of maritime security whilst providing a chance for navies and coast guards to network with the wider defence industry.
The 3-day event will touch upon various aspects of maritime security and C4ISR including enhancing maritime communication and infrastructure, modernising naval platforms, improving naval ISR capabilities across regional waters as well as a dedicated focus day on Africa to discuss their plans of enhancing navies and coast guards to build strong shield system in the continent.
