Dutch MAST briefing participants

The afternoon meeting and reception gave participants an opportunity to pose questions to the Navy and Defence Materiel Organisation regarding its upgrade and procurement plans (including proposed new submarines/frigates/MCMs).

In addition, MAST management answered questions on how MAST Europe 2016 is perfectly timed and located to put its exhibitors (and authors) face-to-face with senior-level domestic operators and technologists, and those of invited VIP guests’ nations requirements:

  • NATO/Europe (inc. Canada, France, Germany, (Netherlands), Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, UK, USA);
  • Other Europe (inc. Sweden);
  • Asia/Pacific (inc. Australia, India, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam);
  • and Gulf States (inc. Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE)

The MAST management would like to thank all that assisted with planning and operating the event, its presenters, and especially the attendees that engaged the group with pertinent and timely questions.
