13-14 November 2007
Venue: London, UK
In an increasingly uncertain world the modern navy needs to be able to respond to a wide range of operational commitments and missions anywhere in the world.
Logistic support ships are essential in providing these forces with greater reach and endurance, and allow self-reliance and sustained operations to be conducted away from a supply base. These ships may be involved in supplying fighting ships bulk consumables, supporting land based forces from the sea, provide forward aviation support and humanitarian relief.
With the implementation of new technologies, changing operational and regulatory environments new methods need to be investigated to make logistic support ships more flexible and economical. This conference will bring together all those concerned with the design, construction, equipment supply and operation to consider recent developments and discuss how they impact on the design of such vessels.
Papers are invited on the following topics:
- Ship to Shore Replenishment Craft
- Replenishment Ships
- Strategic Sealift Vessels
- Forward Repair Vessels
- Hospital Ships
- Disaster Relief Vessels
- Underway Replenishment (RAS/UNREP/VERTREP) Systems
- Ship to Ship Interface
