Post-Conference Workshop: 22nd October, 2008
09.30 - 12.30 Workshop: Maritime surveillance: Achieving littoral and port security
This workshop will provide the latest qualitative analysis on the scope
and utilisation of all aspects of maritime surveillance for achieving
complete domain awareness. It will provide a detailed analysis of the
threats and nature of the challenges that face marine and air forces
securing the seas in both conventional and asymmetric environments.
Not only assessing worldwide market trends in the field, this session will
also focus on obtaining Maritime domain awareness (MDA) and securing
maritime interests with specific focus on the Asia peninsular and India.
The existing maritime surveillance architecture and response
mechanisms of many militaries will be examined with specific reference
to the application of maritime air power in India and in similar
environments. The present day 'tools and techniques' will be subjected
to critical scrutiny by group discussions with a view to providing
solutions for consideration by potential military planners. It provides an
opportunity to the participants to examine existing templates, review
capability gaps and offer appropriate measures.
