WARSHIPS & OPV LATIN AMERICA
Hosted and officially supported by the Brazilian Navy as they embark on the next phase of expansion with the procurement of the Tamandaré class corvettes, the 2018 conference will provide great insight into ongoing fleet renewal. The annual Warships and OPV Latin America conference is a forum for the entire

Technical development in the electromagnetic spectrum, remote control gunnery, and non-lethal weapons will also be examined.
