Tue 8 Mar 2016 @ 9:44

As usual, MAST’s conference committee have secured the very highest level of speakers to take part in this year’s MAST Conference in Amsterdam – view the timetable now.

Not ignoring the top-notch presenters of the technical sessions (worthy of keynote-speaker status in other conferences), MAST Europe 2016 speakers will include:

  • Lieutenant General (Marine Corps) Rob Verkerk, Commander of the Royal Netherlands Navy, The Netherlands
  • Vice Admiral James G. Foggo III, Commander US Navy 6th Fleet, USA
  • Rear Admiral Jose Belo Garcia, Chair NATO Naval Armaments Group/Head of Ships Directorate, Portuguese Navy, Portugal
  • Rear Admiral Karl-Wilhelm Ohlms, Naval Command, German Navy, Germany
  • Dr. Patricia Gruber, Director – Office Naval Research Global, USA
  • Dr Alex Zelinsky (invited), Chief Defence Scientist – Department of Defence, Australia
  • Dr. Hideaki Watanabe, Commissioner – Acquisition Technology and Logistics Agency (ATLA), Japan
  • TBC, Fraunhofer Institute, Germany

With a key focus on evolving threats, future operations and the required enabling technologies, MAST delegates will also be able to ‘explore’ the exhibition (and ship visits) supported by the world’s most active, innovative and prominent international manufacturers/suppliers of maritime/air platforms, systems and services.
