Maritime Reconnaissance Surveillance 2012 Report Released

Defence IQ releases Survey Data for Maritime Reconnaissance & Surveillance Study which  explores the key threats to global maritime operations.

The report, based on a survey of 114 defence professionals from within the maritime domain, also examines the key areas for growth and investment in the market. Furthermore, the study underscores piracy as a key issue within the maritime community and considers what impact counter-piracy operations are having.

Andrew Elwell, Editor in Chief, Defence IQ, said:
"The piracy issue is a one that we really wanted to explore in this report. How are navies and governments coping with the threat and what more can be done to effectively combat it? One of the key conclusions that the report identifies is the need for more collaboration between governments, navies and other maritime agencies. Progress has been encouraging with organisations such as CTF 151, but further inter-agency collaboration is required over the next decade to help stamp out the global threat of piracy."
