Marport and General Dynamics Canada staff will attend the ASW 2009 conference being held in London, England on December 1st and 2nd.
The conference will focus on the changing environment in which anti-submarine warfare operations are likely to be conducted in future, a look at existing capability versus what is needed and an in-depth analysis into the individual practices of ASW and how they are changing. The goal of the conference is to allow delegates to develop a holistic approach in achieving a more capable yet affordable ASW capability. This will be delivered through a variety of presentations, keynote discussions, practical workshops, focus groups, streamed panels and informal breakouts.
This is a must attend event for anyone concerned about the current capability and skill fade in ASW operations. Delegates will hear the latest news, innovations and ambitions from the world leaders in ASW. The event will be attended by personnel from ASW Commands, ASW Centres of Excellence, Concepts and Doctrine staff, Commanders of Surface Ships, Submarines, Maritime Patrol Aircraft, ASW Helicopters and Mine Warfare along with technical and scientific advisors involved in the development of weapons, sensors and acoustics.
ASW 2009 will be the definitive ASW event this year. We welcome you to visit our stand in London at the Royal Horseguards Hotel
The Exhibition Centre of Cotogrande in Vigo, Spain opens its doors today to host the World Fishing Exhibition 2009. The exhibition is open from September 16 – 19th
The World Fishing Exhibition has grown to become the world’s greatest commercial fisheries exhibition. It encompasses everything from sea to plate, with the emphasis on catching and processing. It’s an excellent opportunity to meet Marport commercial and technical personnel who will be presenting our latest technical advances and cost-effective solutions for catch control and gear monitoring.
The exhibition is the sixth to be held in the European fishing port. The previous exhibition in 2003 consisted of almost 800 companies from 80 nations. Over 70,000 worldwide professionals attended that show spending an estimated 400 million euros.
Marport would like to thank the many visitors who visited our booth during this week’s UDT conference and exhibition in Cannes.
UDT gave us the opportunity to introduce our new underwater defence products, and we successfully established relationships with major defence contractors. From the reception we received from UDT attendees, it’s evident that our products are right on target to address existing and emerging requirements for undersea domain awareness.
Mike Harvey, Marport’s VP for Offshore and Defence said, “UDT proved to be a great success for Marport. We utilized the Innovation Showcase and Poster Presentation sessions to highlight our Software Defined Sonar technology to hundreds of conference delegates. In addition to our SDS technology, strong interest was shown in our Integrated Subsea Surveillance System and our Autonomous Underwater Vehicle.”
Marport’s SQX-1 is a new robotic underwater vehicle that can hover in place like a helicopter – an invaluable tool to complement both manned and unmanned surface vehicle operations. Most traditional AUV designs have a significant limitation – like a torpedo, they can only operate while continuously moving forward. Marport’s SQX-1 vehicle overcomes this limitation. It’s hovering capability enables it to stop anywhere in the water column while constantly keeping station by adjusting to underwater currents and obstacles. Navigating to a pre-programmed destination, it can hover in place, making detailed inspections of underwater threats such as mines. Not only can the craft hover, it can move quickly, up to three meters per second (6 knots). Both its speed and its ability to stop in place are achieved through a dual pod design with integrated vector thrusters mounted on fore and aft foils that can rotate 360° to provide forward, rear, horizontal and vertical thrust. The propulsion control system enables tight turns, full rotation or even lateral movement.
During UDT, Marport has been invited by a major navy to deploy the SQX-1 vehicle in test and evaluation trials for Expeditionary Warfare including Special Operations and Mine Warfare.
Marport will be exhibiting in Booth #30 at UDT Europe, being held at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes, Cannes, France from June 9 – 11th.
The Underwater Defence Technology conference is the leading forum for influential members of the international undersea defence community. The conference unites key naval decision makers, defence scientists, technologists and procurement specialists with the leading undersea defence manufacturers and suppliers to discover and discuss the latest developments and issues affecting undersea defence technology.

On May 27 and 28, Marport will be exhibiting its Software Defined Sonar technology at the CANSEC (Canadian Security) Conference to be held in Ottawa, Ontario.
It is the tenth exhibition in the highly successful CANSEC series, which has demonstrated the value in bringing security practitioners together with their supporting industry counterparts. Recognizing the importance of national and continental security, this event will showcase innovative industrial capabilities and service offerings designed to further Canada’s objectives in meeting domestic and international security imperatives.
The show will feature product presentations and capability displays of Canada’s leading edge defence and security technologies to a wide audience that includes government agencies and departments with interests in security, public safety, risk mitigation, threat response and emergency planning.
Requests for meetings can be co-ordinated with Glenda Leyte. Glenda’s email is: email@example.com

We released some new brochures at today’s Underwater Battlespace conference being held in London, England.
The new Software Defined Sonar technology brochure can be downloaded from here.
The new Caruso SF7 brochure for naval applications can be downloaded from here.
During yesterday’s pre-conference workshop, Norman Friedman, an internationally known strategist and military technological analyst, gave a very interesting presentation on Net Centric Warfare. Network Centric Warfare (NCW) is a naval concept for transforming military operations in the 21st Century. NCW focuses on using information technology to link together ships, submarines, autonomous underwater vehicles, aircraft, and shore installations into highly integrated networks that present an overall tactical “picture” to enhance situational awareness. NCW could significantly improve naval capabilities and lead to substantial changes in naval tactics, doctrine, and organization.
From January 19 – 21, Marport personnel will be attending the 7th Annual Underwater Battlespace conference in London, England. The conference brings together senior military personnel responsible for underwater requirements with leading figures from industry. Presentations will address the key challenges for underwater platforms to ensure naval forces have the critical capabilities for Anti Submarine Warfare (ASW), Mine Counter Measures (MCM) and Autonomous Underwater Vehicles.
Marport will be showcasing its Software Defined Sonar platform as a key enabling technology that can increase connectivity and interoperability between underwater assets in order to move towards a network-centric operating environment. Network-centric warfare (NCW), or net-enabled capability (NEC) as it’s known in Europe, is a central theme to the current naval defence development of western nations. The concept is shaping a new approach to warfare, which emphasises a different way of using tactical information. It is therefore playing an increasingly vital role in underwater operations. The concept is that attack assets can be dispersed, relying on information provided by remote sensors over information nets using advanced subsea sensing and acoustic communication technologies, such as those designed and manufactured by Marport.
