An overview of the Shipbuilding Technology Forum 2018 

In this episode of Vanguard Radio, Marcello Sukhdeo gives an overview of the Shipbuilding Technology Forum 2018 that was held recently in Ottawa. 

On March 1st, over 150 attendees from the military and industry gathered at the Shaw Centre for Vanguard's fifth annual Shipbuilding Technology Forum. This event is a one-day conference with the aim to showcase emerging technologies, presentations on marine and shipbuilding issues and ship repair. 

Vanguard has been working with industry, government and military over the years to provide a platform to create an environment for the different parties to share lessons and showcase cutting-edge technologies. 

This year's event was built on the theme: Agility through Technology.   

Hear an overview about presentations on:  

Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security program, (IDEaS),  

Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP),  

Keynote by Andy Smith, Deputy Commissioner - Strategy and Shipbuilding, Canadian Coast Guard 

Naval Infra-Red Search and Track Systems (IRST),  

Decarbonization and Marine Propulsion Systems 

Well, that was an overview of the event. I found it to be quite interesting, hearing about the different technologies currently available and what we can look forward to in the future. Especially, what can be done with autonomous technology and AI?

Vanguard will be hosting the 2019 version of this event at the same time next year. Please stay tuned for more details.
