Increasing maritime surveillance and aerial reconnaissance in the Middle East

Strategies and best practices to increase maritime security

Welcome to the Coastal & Maritime Surveillance Middle East, a premier International Summit aimed at strengthening naval operations in the Middle East. With recent global catastrophes highlighting the difficulty in delivering effective maritime operations, countries are now analysing and evaluating their current naval operations and asking how they can improve their maritime domain awareness (MDA).

CMS Middle East will bring together local and international stakeholders that are responsible for the development of effective naval operations and maritime surveillance and reconnaissance in the region and abroad. The event will cover important topics that are present in the sector such as:

  • Coordination and interoperability of naval operations
  • Enhancing the region’s Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA)
  • Reducing the vulnerability of the Middle East maritime sector
  • Enhancing international and regional cooperation
  • Enforcing anti-crime surveillance, intelligence and information sharing in the Middle East
  • Identifying the latest technologies for maritime security and surveillance and how to apply them
