Maritime Security in Africa Potential for Public-Private Partnerships

Maritime Security in Africa Potential for Public-Private Partnerships

3 December, 2014. London, United Kingdom

While piracy has drawn the media’s attention, maritime security is much more all-encompassing. Africa in particular has seen many discussions about maritime security issues in recent years and various documents have been signed on the regional and continental level. Translating good intentions into practice, however, will take time. Short-term capability gaps will have to be addressed much sooner; private maritime security companies could play an important role.

This master class will provide insights into maritime security challenges in African coastal states, explain political developments and highlight two case studies. It will focus on the potential for partnerships between national governments and private maritime security companies to address capability gaps in the maritime domain.

The target audience are representatives from the private maritime security industry, regulatory and certification bodies as well as national governments and international organisations.

Principles, Systems and Technologies for C4ISR

Principles, Systems and Technologies for C4ISR

4 December, 2014. London, United Kingdom

At the completion of this C4ISR Masterclasss attendees will:

• Have a deeper understanding of the operational principles and underlying technologies of modern C4ISR systems


• Have a wider understanding of the complex linkages between technology, people, process, tools, business benefit and balance of investment decisions


• Understand how making significant investment in relevant S&T can lead to more effective defence systems


• Be able to better articulate the relationships between underlying technologies and C4ISR systems


• Be able to better execute your responsibilities within the wider C4ISR arena.


This course on C4ISR should appeal to a variety of audiences including senior executives and military commanders, military staff officers, government acquisition staff, industry marketing personnel, development engineers from government and industry, and diplomatic and political staff.

The technical depth of the course will be adjusted to the backgrounds of the audience. For an audience consisting of technical staff, quantitative aspects of the subjects can be explored, while for a more general audience quantitative aspects will be downplayed.

Training and Simulation for Night Vision Systems

Training and Simulation for Night Vision Systems

9 December, 2014. London, United Kingdom

Night Vision operations continue to grow in importance with EASA/CAA/FAA licensing and aircraft clearances being extended into civilian air operations. The military has always had these clearances since early 1970s. Training is still generally carried out using the aircraft but with some simulation. This masterclass looks at Virtual Terrain Image Generation for Night Vision Googles (NVGs) and provides interactive high fidelity simulation and training for both air and ground operations, GLONASS, in line with announcements made in July.

  • Hear about the latest technology in training in Night Vision Systems
  • Have the opportunity to better formulate your night vision training to better your squadron’s performance
  • Have the opportunity to raise questions of interest to you during group discussions

Operational Test & Evaluation versus Experimental Flight Test

Operational Test & Evaluation versus Experimental Flight Test

9 December, 2014. London, United Kingdom

As the vast majority of flight test activity at traditional flight test centres and operational evaluation units now comprises systems test and evaluation, rather than envelope expansion testing, we examine the case for more specific training in systems procurement, evaluation, integration and testing. Full flight test training is expensive, time consuming and unnecessary for the vast majority of tasks associated with these processes; moreover, many flight test centres and operational evaluation units employ current front line pilots with the task of conducting integration test and evaluation, but without any specific task related training. We examine the potential benefits of providing bespoke training in OT&E (and DT) to personnel employed in military and commercial procurement, test and evaluation.

  • Gain knowledge of flight test sequences
  • Gain a better understanding of how OTE training can benefit design, procurement and integration processes
  • Gain a better understanding of how military and commercial organisations can become more efficient with in service test and integration processes
  • Gain knowledge of cost effective alternative solutions to your flight test and development needs

THE USA AND CBRNE

The USA are without a doubt the world’s leading nation for CBRNe related innovations, solutions, and approaches. In the face of relentless terrorist threats, CBRNe matters remain a focal point in the arena of homeland security. Through several government agencies such as DTRA and BARDA, the US is constantly upgrading its CBRN defense capabilities and preparedness for mass casualty incidents. Consequently, this leads to the necessity of sharing best practices, raising awareness of persisting challenges, and getting the most novel solutions and approaches out there.
