Oceanographic Survey Vessels 2017 Agenda

What Navies, Coast Guards and National Hydrographic Offices can learn from OSV 2017

  • Support Naval Mission Planning and Operations: Understand the unique benefits that a survey capability offers your nation’s navy or coast guard and recognise the pros and cons of different ship designs and how they impact build, operational and maintenance costs so that you can build a an effective case for procurement 
  • Force Multiplier: Learn how unmanned autonomous vehicles can remove the man-power burden from commanders and buttress existing survey missions with a cheaper and more expansive prediction of currents, density and sea states and tides, ensuring effective and safe navigation of waters in future missions
  • Prolong the Life of Your Fleet: Discover how to reduce the costs of maintenance and improve fuel efficiency through new technology upgrades in propulsion so that your fleet can operate for longer and in the most austere environments 
  • Harness the power of your Blue Economy: Determine what survey capabilities you require for your fleet and better manage, protect and extract the enormous ocean resources at your disposal
  • Achieving Real-time Response: Investigate which technologies are needed ship-to-shore for a quicker processing, exploitation and dissemination of vital bathymetric and geospatial data so that your fleet can respond in real time to weather changes, operational threat or navigational challenges

The Oceanographic Survey Vessels Can Enable Crucial Capability for Military Operations

The Oceanographic Survey Vessel market is one of the fastest growing in the naval sector with 29 vessels on order in nine countries along with current requirements for at least eight new OSVs worth $1.6 billion. Moreover, Defence IQ’s analysis forecasts requirements in at least 20 countries over the next five years worth up to $5 billion. Defence IQ recently spoke with Lieutenant Commander Tim Hall, the capability manager for littoral warfare within the naval combat capability working group in the New Zealand Defence Force to explain why are we seeing this rapid increase in demand for OSVs.

How to get buy-in for Oceanographic Survey Vessels: An Italian Case Study

Ahead of the Oceanographic Survey Vessel (OSV) conference in London this June, Defence IQ sought out Captain Luigi Sinapi, the Italian National Hydrographer, to understand more about why these multi-role platforms are in such high demand. And, more crucially, how navies and maritime authorities can get buy-in from those who hold the purse strings to invest in new OSV platforms and capabilities.

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!

Oceanographic Survey Vessels: Security Impact & National Requirements

Oceanographic Survey Vessels 2017 will take place in London on 21-22 June, with briefings from international navy hydrographic chiefs, coast guard specialists and scientific researchers. Ahead of the event, this report explores some of the core issues facing survey vessels today, from the justification of their utility as strategic security assets to the increasing demand for Arctic exploration. We also provide insight into the latest Defence IQ research on OSV requirements and potential requirements worldwide.

Belgium to replace minehunters with unmanned vessels

October 2014
The rise of the unmanned system continues as European nations are now fixated on removing the man from the maritime minefield. According to insider reports, the Belgian Navy has almost certainly resolved to replace three classes of its vessels, with USVs (Unmanned Surface Vessels) said to be taking the torch among the minehunter fleet...

How navies can adapt IED lessons for mine-countermeasures effort

Dealing with roadside bombs in Afghanistan and Iraq prompted the Army and Marine Corps to make major changes in their equipment, tactics, and force structure. Commander (Rtd) Thomas S. Reynolds of the U.S. Navy explains how navies can adapt many of these lessons and procedures for its own naval mine-countermeasures effort.
