Over last 12 months, the Geo Maritime team has conducted thorough research with the hydrography, bathymetry and maritime surveillance communities. We enlisted the services of some of the leading players in the community to help us make sure that we are delivering the conference to meet the needs of the maritime surveillance community.

The Need for Geo Maritime

With S100, E-Nav and INSPIRE all impacting the maritime sector, the government and commercial sector are under increasing pressure to change technologically in the next 3-5 years.

Add to that the importance of Maritime operations, it has never been more critical to have real time, accurate, rich data in order to make the right decisions surrounding maritime security threats.

But in light of budget cuts, the maritime community need to know:

  • How to do more with less
  • How to work more effectively with industry partners to achieve the same results.

Can you help them to overcome their challenges?

Change in the maritime community is inevitable. At Geo Maritime we will be helping to answer:

  • How organisations can understand and comply with S100, E-NAV and INSPIRE
  • How do we complete the move from paper to digital?
  • How can data be effectively collected, disseminated, stored and shared?
  • Is it possible to break down barriers and current approaches to enable data to be collected once in a format that can be effectively shared between all Maritime Stakeholders?
  • How can data be collected in the most cost efficient way, what technologies can really reduce costs without compromising quality?
  • How can geospatial information capabilities be further advanced in maritime security, surveillance and monitoring operations?
  • How do military and civilian agencies leverage each others geospatial infrastructures?
  • How can organisations realise geospatial information as a key force multiplier?

They will be hearing from thought-leaders including:

  • Captain Robert Ward, Director, IHO
  • Captain Steven Malcolm, UKHO
  • Andre Carcuccio, Unit Head Hydrography, Maritime and Coast Guard Agency

Ensure your services are front-of-mind when by offering your advise and expertise when our audience tackle these questions.
