5th Annual Search And Rescue 2017 Summit

5th Annual Search And Rescue 2017 Summit

Defence IQ has just announced the event programme for the 5th Annual Search and Rescue 2017 Summit (Copenhagen, 30th May - 1st June 2017).

2016 has been a significant year for SAR operators, with 2017 likely to be just as challenging. They have seen the continuation of the migrant and refugee crisis in the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas, as well as several tragic, high-profile incidents such as the Puma Crash off the Norwegian Coast in 2016 that have drawn SAR operations into the public eye. These missions have highlighted the need for mass-rescue capability, as well as the most rapid location and response times feasible.

The SAR 2017 senior speaker panel, will be joined by:

Rear Admiral Georg Larússon, Commander - Icelandic Coast Guard
Mr. Richard Parkes, Director of Maritime Operations - UK Maritime and Coast Guard Agency
Mr. Leendert Bal, Head of Operations - European Maritime Administration
Ms. Mirjana Cizmarov, Director General - Serbian Civil Aviation Directorate
Captain Jori Nordstrom, Head of Operations - Finnish Lifeboat Institution
Mr. David Jones, Chief Executive Officer - Rescue Global
Mr. Bjørn Bay, Chief of Police - Greenland Police
Mr. Lars Widell, Deputy SAR Director - Swedish Maritime Administration
Mr. Karel Nemec, Head of RCC Slovakia - LPS SR
Group Captain Shabbir Ahmad, SAR Coordinator Karachi Airport - Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority

They will provide exclusive insight into:

The strategic elements of Search and Rescue, including planning, procurement and budget prioritisation
The vessels and air platforms utilised in SAR missions, and how their capabilities can be augmented and adapted to meet certain mission requirements
The use of Unmanned Systems in SAR operations, and the legislative hurdles that must be overcome before they can be utilised to their full potential

They hope to welcome you at this important meeting alongside fellow SAR operators and subject matter experts, who are driving change and innovation in the field of SAR operations, strategy and supply.
