The world’s leading forum for maritime ISR professionals
The maritime domain plays host to some of the greatest threats to international security. As Mediterranean nations continue to tackle illegal migration – nearly 16 000 migrants have arrived on Italian shores since January – the wider ISR community must do battle with piracy, drug smuggling and illegal fishing. The operational in-tray is overflowing, with commanders requiring multi-role capabilities that can deliver persistent surveillance for a range of missions.
Industry has worked hard to realise a networked, multi-platform approach to maritime intelligence-gathering. Now more than ever, operators can take advantage of a range of sophisticated sensors, which can plug in to the broader network to deliver high-resolution coverage.
As data linkage approaches maturity, data exploitation takes a front seat. Maritime ISR cannot afford to ignore the need for a robust PED function, capable of processing multiple data sources to support intelligent and rapid decision-making. For the operators who are not supplanted by intuitive data analytics, effective training will be key. Only then can they meet the challenge of delivering accurate surveillance to support global maritime security, no matter the challenge at hand.
Join us in Rome for the 15th annual Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance summit, as over 150 members of the ISR community target multi-role capabilities for a multi-threat environment.

Past Attendees Say it Best
“Very useful and very very helpful...a great opportunity to meet people and share ideas”
“A good mix of Navy, Coast Guard and industry speakers, providing a very comprehensive view of MPA capability. A good insight on the gaps and where MPA are going in the future”
“Participation In the MRS Forum in previous years has provided an outstanding opportunity to discuss emerging challenges we share with other members. Each nation faces slightly different problem sets, with varying magnitudes while performing essentially the same missions. We expect this year to provide the same opportunities to discuss our shared challenges and solutions and meet our counterparts around the globe”
