PROGRAMME INFORMATION

DAY 1 - ENABLING TECHNOLOGY FOR SURVIVABILITY, SAFETY AND OPTIMISED MANNING

Date: 14 May 2013, Tuesday Time: 1pm – 4pm

With the growing automation of warships, allocation of human resources will also undergo transformation in order to maintain on-board safety and effectiveness. This workshop seeks to explore the technological developments available to enhance the survivability and safety of warships while at the same time, improving the effectiveness of crews and maintaining operational capability and flexibility.

Keynote: A Naval Operational View of the Balance between Automation and Manning

Topics

  • How can we strike a balance between automation, flexibility and safety?
  • How can automation be incorporated in ship design with the appropriate degree of assurance?
  • Integrated Bridge Platform Management Systems: What are the Future Possibilities?
  • How do commercial shipping operators manage and could this be imported into warships?

DAY 2 - OPTIMISING TECHNOLOGY FOR AFFORDABLE CAPABILITY

Date: 15 May 2013, Wednesday Time: 1pm – 4pm

A multi-perspective exploration of how technology can be used to achieve affordable capability in navies through deliberate and innovative design, operation and support of warships.

Keynote: Requirements of Maritime Capabilities in the 21st Century: A Naval Perspective

Topics

  • Which emerging technologies in the maritime domain are key to generating affordable capability?
  • What are the experiences and lessons of Through Life Capability Management?
  • How to push technology boundaries against ship-builder conservatism? Can technology risks be better managed?
  • How best can navies contract for the capability and support they need?
  • Is there still a place for military standards and how much reliance can be placed on COTS equipment?
