ONR Global and MARSEC COE to present updates on maritime ISR Technology at Maritime Reconnaissance & Surveillance Technology 2021 Conference

Reconnaissance & Surveillance Technology 2021 Conference SMi Reports: Senior experts from these two organisations are set to present next month at the virtual Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance technology conference.

In recent news, the US Navy and Royal Navy partner in a newly launched London Tech Bridge. Both nations as full partners will serve as a command post for innovation for the two Navies as they work toward interchangeability in everything from technology development to deployment and operation. In a live interview, Cmdr. Albert Arnold, of Office of Naval Research Global (ONR Global), who will serve as the U.S. director, noted "Using ONR Global's deep networks as the perfect foundation, we're very excited to expand the breadth and reach with our Royal Navy partners to deliver capability for defense and beyond." *


With this in mind, SMi Group's 6th annual Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology conference, taking place virtually on the 3rd-4th February 2021, will feature exclusive briefings from ONR Global, as well as the Multinational Maritime Security Centre of Excellence on how to achieve comprehensive maritime domain awareness (MDA) through new innovative solutions.

Registration is FREE for military and government personnel, and just £499 for commercial organisations. Register at http://www.maritime-recon.com/pr5

The two speakers will delve into the key theme for the conference of research and development into maritime ISR technology:

Dr Rhett Jefferies, Technical Director, Office of Naval Research Global will be presenting on ‘Exploiting Developing Technologies for Superior Maritime Domain Awareness', covering:
• Update on Office of Naval Research Global Initiatives to accelerate transition of New Technologies for Superior Maritime Situational Awareness
• Innovative technology for greater and more efficient data harvesting
• Collaborating with international partners to improve joint capabilities

Mr Guy Thomas, President, C-SIGMA, Multinational Maritime Security Centre of Excellence (MARSEC COE) will be presenting on ‘Space-Based Maritime Awareness ‘, covering:
• Dramatically enhancing space-based maritime awareness through innovative technologies
• The role of AI and machine learning tools in rapidly analysing data
• from Earth observation satellites and their sensors
• Drivers and goals of future innovations in the field of space-based maritime awareness

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
