Maritime and Defence Dual-Use Conference 2017, 4th April 2017

Marine South East is hosting a conference, with funding from the European Commission, targeting maritime dual-use opportunities in autonomous systems and satellite applications. The conference will take place on 4th April 2017, as part of the Ocean Business event programme in National Oceanography Centre (NOC), Southampton. Registration is free, and includes an evening reception for networking.

There is increasing convergence between defence and commercial applications in areas such as surveillance, asset tracking and cyber-security. This presents 'dual-use' opportunities for business. Not only can convergence share costs across different applications, but also it offers broader market access for innovative products and services.

Recognising these trends, non-profit Marine South East is hosting a conference targeting maritime dual-use opportunities in autonomous systems and satellite applications. Both of these themes are on a growth curve for investment, and are attracting widespread interest across public and private sectors. The goal of the conference is to highlight innovation priorities and initiate relationships across defence and commercial, involving major primes and SMEs.

The conference will take place on 4th April 2017, as part of the Ocean Business http://www.oceanbusiness.com event programme in National Oceanography Centre (NOC), Southampton. Registration is free, and includes an evening reception for networking.

This workshop and B2B event are taking place under the European Network of Defence Related regions which is supporting a programme to promote dual-use innovation.

The conference, on 4th April 2017, will focus on two technology themes that are currently enjoying strong investment in both civil and military applications, with large numbers of SMEs in the value chain, but where dual-use priorities are not systematically identified.

The themes are:

* Maritime information services, including satellite applications, maritime Internet of Things, cyber security and dual-use data analytics and web services
* Sensor platforms and autonomy, including marine autonomous systems, energy storage for endurance, sensors and smart sensor networks

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from funding bodies and industry partners looking to fully exploit the entrepreneurial opportunities and synergies between dual-use products, services and technologies that can drive innovation in both the civil and defence marine and maritime sectors.

Specialist Man Overboard and Injury Prevention Workshops, 25th and 26th April 2017, Southampton

A programme of two, one day events for the sub IMO / sub 24 metre professional sector is being held 'back to back' in Southampton UK on 25th & 26th April 2017.

The fast moving workshop style programme will bring together an international group of experts armed with the latest knowledge to identify problems that affect the maritime sector worldwide - and highlight potential solutions!

Day One focuses on Man Overboard Prevention & Recovery. Topics include location of a casualty in the water, solutions range from crew keeping a traditional lookout to the latest electronic devices. Besides the challenge of working in rough conditions lifting the casualty can be hampered by injuries, clothing and vessel design.

Subject matter experts presenting include Captain Andrew Moll - Deputy Chief Inspector of the Marine Accident Investigation Branch and Captain Don Cockrill, Secretary General of the UK Maritime Pilots Association. Every pilot's nightmare is to fall off the ladder whilst boarding. Although such incidents are fortunately very rare, when it does happen there are lessons to be learned by everyone involved - including the casualty in the water. In February 2011 Captain Jon Stafford fell from a pilot ladder 6 miles off Margate while boarding a cargo ship at night in the North Sea. He recounts lessons learned from this incident to help others.

Day Two focuses on RS & WBV - Repetitive Shock & Whole Body Vibration on planing craft. Sessions look at how requirements and expectations are changing. Professional operators can learn techniques to improve efficiency and safety for everyone onboard.

Both Workshop days are relevant to Workboats, Pilot Boats, Patrol Boats, Search & Rescue, Survey Vessels, Wind Farm Support, Superyacht Tenders, Training and Charter Vessels.

The Workshops are being held at the Grand Harbour Hotel overlooking the historic port of Southampton. Supporters of the event include UK Maritime Pilots Association, SSA - Shipbuilders & Shiprepairers Association, British Marine, whose members receive 20% discount off the attendee fee.
