The only symposium dedicated exclusively to discuss new approaches to modularity, interoperability and new combat systems for all future navies

The Naval Combat Systems 2016 conference has been designed to enable end-users and industry to further the discussion around modernisation, modularity, interoperability, and the acquisition and integration of new combat systems.

For instance, is it possible to achieve effective modularity for systems integration without compromising on ship design and security standards? Is open architecture the key to reducing cost and accelerating implementation? Are COTS systems a real option to reduce costs or are they short term solutions that become more costly over the years? Is it better to focus on generic ship design and to integrate systems later or to design your ship with specific systems in mind?

Naval Combat Systems 16 will address the answers to these questions and more, through the perspectives of operators and platform/systems programme managers from international navies. Industry leaders will also showcase their experiences and capability development achievements, through detailed presentations focusing on the delivery of systems and modernisation programmes for Frigates, Corvettes and OPV’s.

The conference will therefore examine the innovative technologies and solutions that are designed to meet operational requirements by generating high-level debate amongst these delegates, around the key issues in the sector.

We invite you to attend Naval Combat Systems 2016 to benefit from:

  • Feedback and analysis from existing programmes- such as SCOMBA, F125 and T22R- programmes that are either tackling interoperability issues from the perspective of platform modernisation, or from the ground up. This will provide delegates with a clear comparison for developing their own development strategies
  • Information on how leading operators manage combat system assurance for deployed units such as Mine Countermeasure Vessels, and how you can continue to deliver effect once your system is deployed
  • An in-depth review of the systems integration requirements and the subsequent capability expectations for new Frigates, Corvettes and OPV’s being developed in the US, UK, Romania, Spain, and Colombia and what these new systems will deliver for the user
  • A unique opportunity to steer focus towards the state-of-the-art systems, best practices and cost-effective solutions that your organisation are developing and to build and consolidate relationships within the growing community
