  • (1888PressRelease) October 20, 2016 - "Taking place this October off the coasts of Scotland and West Wales, Unmanned Warrior will demonstrate how the systems being showcased deliver situational awareness to the Royal Navy.

    ... Admiral Sir Philip Jones, First Sea Lord and Chief of Naval Staff, said: "The growing scale of Unmanned Warrior is a clear demonstration of the Royal Navy's ambition to lead and win through technological innovation. Unmanned maritime systems will change how we operate, but they're just the start. Our pursuit of new technologies and ideas will ensure we remain one of the most capable and successful navies in the world." *(Source)

    The Unmanned Warrior exercise highlights that autonomous ISR systems are becoming increasingly important for Navies seeking to enhance their intelligence gathering capabilities.

    With the exercise currently taking place, this shows that maritime surveillance is becoming a huge focal point and topic of discussion within the defence industry, thus making this event highly relevant.

    Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology 2017 will feature a carefully selected speaker line-up that comprises of senior military personnel, project decision makers and industry solution providers who will explore future endeavours that will enhance the security and stability of the world's oceans. The two-day event will enable attendees to participate in discussions on collaboration in maritime information sharing as well as the increasing use of unmanned systems to enhance maritime security.
