Offshore Patrol Vessels 2018 will examine the platform across its life cycle. As the maritime security environment grows increasingly complex, OPV users require an updated assessment of the role the patrol vessel should play. Can it step up to support the broader battle fleet in a higher intensity conflict scenario, in addition to its conventional role? If so, what might the implications of such a role might be for the design, deployment and sustainment of the future platform?

Split across three days, OPV 2018 will undertake to answer one question: how can the OPV sustain its relevance in the future operating environment? At the granular level, the conference agenda will examine the OPV across its life cycle. Topics will include design modularity, through-life management and modernisation, automation, combat systems, communications systems, unmanned platform integration and multi-mission readiness. The forum looks to identify opportunities for collaborative capability development, and targets an OPV blueprint which is interoperable at a technical and tactical level.
