Sweden welcomes fourth annual MAST

Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
: 27 April, 2008  (New Product)
With likely dates of Tuesday 20th to Thursday 22nd October 2009, MAST’s organisers are delighted to announce acceptance of an invitation to hold the fourth annual MAST Conference and Trade-show in Stockholm, Sweden.
Official statements from the highest levels of the endorsing authorities (plural) will feature in a future eNews, but for now, MAST participants can rest assured that the level of support promised is as stellar as now expected for MAST 2008, and with closer joint cooperation from neighbouring countries.

Long-standing MAST committee member RADM Bertil Bjorkman will take up the reins of the event as Chairman.

MAST participants will be balloted later in the year for their preferred location of MAST 2010 (and onwards).

Northrop Grumman joins trade-show line-up

Northrop Gumman wins U.S. Navy BAMS contract

Northrop Grumman has just confirmed that it will be exhibiting at MAST for the first time this November in Cadiz.

Their participation boosts both the impressive level of US government and industry support evident at all previous MAST trade-shows, but equally increases the number of prime contractors exhibiting (of major interest to delegates, VIPs and visitors, but also important to MAST’s SME exhibitors).
Northrop Gumman

Just this week, the US Navy awarded Northrop Grumman a $1.16 billion contract for System Development and Demonstration of the service’s new Broad Area Maritime Surveillance Unmanned Aircraft System (BAMS UAS) program.

A future eNews will outline what participants can expect to see on the Northrop Grumman stand.

Undersea defence community gets behind MAST

With just one week until the MAST 2008 conference abstract deadline (Wednesday 30th April), it is clear that the international undersea defence community has embraced the opportunity to take part in MAST events…

Without diluting the high quality and number of surface/above abstracts submitted to the conference committee, the number and quality of undersea defence/security abstracts has surpassed expectations.

Additional session streams are likely to be needed to accommodate the additional papers, but this, in hand with new ‘undersea’ exhibitors at MAST, will ensure that MAST participants with specific undersea interests will find the event a great return-on-investment.

Complete programme details will be available in both the delegate favoured, bound pocket booklet – available on-site, and mailed to registered delegates, two weeks before the event – and an A4 variant (mailed to selected MAST Community members, and upon request).

The on-line timetable – live immediately after the committee meeting at the end of May – will be interactive, allowing delegates to identify surface/undersea/other specific sessions, and create their own bespoke programme.

Royal Navy’s Commodore Mansergh takes active role in MAST

Commodore Mansergh

Ahead of next month’s MAST committee planning meeting in Cadiz, UK Royal Navy Commodore Bob Mansergh – Deputy Director, US Second Fleet Combined Joint Operations From The Sea Centre of Excellence – has pledged his support for the event.

Whilst his role has yet to be defined, his support has been widely welcomed by the MAST committee, and discussions in Cadiz will include the possibility of creating a senior-level panel debate at the event (theme to be agreed), which could offer pre-registered delegates the opportunity to pose questions to an impressive line-up of global maritime security leaders.
