Oceanographic survey vessels: A security necessity?

Oceanographic survey vessels: A security necessity?

With investment into new, multi-role naval vessels and submarines increasing worldwide, and projections on the Blue Economy suggesting its worth at $2.4 trillion per year, now is an opportune moment to reflect on the utility of oceanographic survey vessels and other surveying capabilities. Ahead of this year's OSV conference, Defence IQ undertook a survey of its community on the demands and priorities of OSVs as a means for both security and development. Find out what our readers thought about: - The urgency for OSV investment - The preferred structure of OSV fleets - The investment priorities of oceano/hydrographic technologies - The areas of security operations most likely to benefit from new survey capabilities - And more!

The CMRE's role in increasing skills and investment in ocean science to protect NATO's strategic maritime priorities

Navies across the world are shifting their strategic thinking onto oceanographic and hydrographic vessels, ocean systems, submarines and maritime unmanned vehicles as they could enable them to achieve maritime dominance over adversaries. NATO's Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation is in the lead when it comes to research and experimentation of new technologies in ocean science to address security and defence issues within NATO nations. Dr Catherine Warner, Director of the Centre and speaker at the Naval Survey and Ocean Intelligence forum, gave Defence IQ her expert insight on the role of the CMRE in supporting NATO's maritime strategic interests and strengthening cross-sector relationships and the potential of new technologies in this operational environment.
