Littoral Defence 2005
|Event Date/Time: Apr 20, 2005||End Date/Time: Apr 21, 2005|
This is especially so in today’s new security environment. Threats of piracy, asymmetric conflicts and even mines are still prevalent.
In addition, the means to defend the littoral and fight a littoral war is complex and difficult. The usual bastions of blue water like frigates and battleships just aren’t equipped to operate in littoral conditions. Plus, conventional weapons systems can be too heavy.
This conference will address the challenges faced when defending the littoral state and strategies to overcome them. It will detail changing requirements in line with the increased threat of asymmetric adversaries in one of the most complex theatres.
