As stories of missing military personnel in Afghanistan and Iraq continue to make the headlines, national defence forces and international agencies are responding with increased attention on improving the way we prepare for Search and Rescue (SAR) and Personnel Recovery (PR) operations. Crucially, the military SAR/PR community is asking:

Where are the biggest capability gaps and how can we plug these?
What can be learned from current deployed operations and recent PR events?
How can we better utilise resources and increase coalition interoperability?

In announcing the 5th annual event, Defence IQ is building on its strong history of bringing together the key players in PR/SAR/CSAR from national defence agencies, industry, NATO and other international bodies to assess how training needs can be met, how resources can be maximised and how operations can be executed to the highest possible standard. In just two days, you will analyse:

• Latest national and NATO capability needs and requirements for PR operations

• Lessons learned from current deployed operations in Afghanistan and Iraq

• Updates on roles and requirements for new and existing SAR platforms, including rotorcraft

• Advances into the drive for greater coalition standardization and interoperability

• Doctrine for, and case studies in, effective training and planning for CSAR events

• New systems and technologies for enhanced SAR capabilities
