With submission levels not seen since MAST Europe 2007 (Genoa, Italy), the MAST conference committee had a challenging task to adjudicate the high volume, high quality of abstracts sent in.

Even allowing for many rejected submissions, the resulting timetable is absolutely packed with presentations – on current and future operational issues and state-of-the-art/developmental technology solutions – from global speakers at highest level of defence operations and technology.

With 117 presentations in 39 Sessions, by 62 organisations, from 16 countries delegates paying to attend MAST Asia 2015 will get optimum return for their registration investment.

Alongside, MAST ‘traditional’ sessions include:

  • Opening and Keynote addresses: “Security at Sea in a Dynamic World”
  • Plenary session: “Maritime Security: Securing the Sea Lanes of Communication”
  • and five parallel streams of technical sessions…

…MAST Asia will also host an exclusive “Future Submarine Symposium” and featured sessions including “International Naval R&D Programmes” and the highly topical “Amphibious Operations”.

The major highlight of the conference week – not to be missed by any international organisation (government or commercial) looking to partner Japan in defence R&D or business – will be the “Government briefing – Japanese Defence Trade and Research & Development policies and opportunities”, hosted by senior Japanese government officials.
