  • Enhancing surveillance and operations to combat against traditional maritime threats: Updates on counter-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden, Straits of Malacca and the Eastern Sabah Coast
  • Best practices and enhanced surveillance to mitigate increasingly common non-traditional threats: Dealing with illegal immigration, EEZ protection, armed robbery, smuggling activities and more
  • Latest surveillance technologies from land, air and sea perspectives: Hear how the latest technologies and solutions can enable you to detect small, fast craft, the latest advancements in space-based surveillance and more

Co-located with the inaugural Maritime Search and Rescue Asia 2013 conference which is set aside as a separate one-day event, the SAR conference will cover the increasingly important maritime operations in Asia Pacific, complementing the broader themes of coastal surveillance and maritime security.
