The world’s leading forum for maritime ISR professionals
As territorial disputes and aggressive force posturing persist in the South China Sea and Baltics and counter-narcotics and human trafficking crimes continue in Latin America and the Mediterranean respectively, maritime ISR remains the critical capability for all nation states with maritime obligations. In response to this need, industry has delivered vast technological improvements to unmanned systems, advanced sensors and satellite constellations that have revolutionised information gathering and the ability to create full situational awareness.These capabilities are now available to support traditional maritime patrol aircraft operations and platform-based ISR. However, challenges remain for integrating, fusing and analysing the abundance of collected data in order to deliver information superiority to the operational commander. Whatever the objective, the Commander in 2017 is as likely to be constrained by data-overload as data-scarcity.
For the 15th year, our established maritime community will gather in Rome to address these challenges at the Maritime Reconnaissance & Surveillance 2017 summit. Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance is the first and only conference to examine the entire maritime surveillance precept by exploring a multi-platform, multi-sensor approach to gathering ISR data. After the outstanding work of industry in the last 14 years, military requirement setters and capability development leads are able to comfortably present the case for bettering their information management solutions. Now they are looking to industry to offer cutting edge data fusion systems to present mission critical information in an accessible and timely fashion to enable optimal exploitation of ISR data.
So we invite you to join 160 colleagues at the community's annual gathering as stakeholders from military, government, industry and research join together to explore the major challenges and opportunities facing maritime ISR operators in the complex international 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”
