In response to fears at seaports and terminals over access to sufficient detection and container scanning solutions to combat the maritime CBRN threat, SMi is proud to present the inaugural CBRN in the Maritime Environment conference.

This must-attend event will focus upon detection, response and recovery at sea for Naval and Government practitioners. Whilst the hazardous materials remain the same, combating the threat that these materials pose at sea requires a different approach, different equipment, and different training.

As an island nation, the UK has a variety of critical national infrastructures placed close to the coast. In the event of a terrorist attack including the use of the 4 materials, it is essential that we understand the risk and correct response in this coastal environment.

CBRN in the Maritime Environment 2012 is the only dedicated commercial Maritime CBRN conference in the UK that brings together expertise from leading maritime nations and offers vendors the chance to demonstrate to the community how their solutions work in the maritime domain.
