WARSHIPS & OPV LATIN AMERICA
Hosted in Chile the Warships and OPV Latin America conference is a forum for the entire region. With an exceptional track-record of attracting the senior leadership of naval and maritime forces across Latin America, this is a truly regional event building on the previous conferences held in Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, and Brazil.
With strong host nation support from the Chilean Navy and Astilleros y Maestranzas de la Armada (ASMAR), the 2017 annual Latin American conference will provide great insight into the ongoing fleet modernization of the Chilean Navy; not just with regards to their future OPVs, but also the modernisations carried out to OPV 1 and 2.
In addition to ship design, operational utility, and regional threats – the conference will examine command and control systems and their effectiveness on small operations including search and rescue, oil spill control and coordinating missions with aircraft. Technical development in the electromagnetic spectrum, remote control gunnery, and non-lethal weapons will also be examined.
