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 region with an exceptional track-record of attracting the senior leadership of naval and maritime forces from across Latin America.

In addition to ship design, operational utility, and regional threats – the conference will examine command and control systems and their effectiveness on small operations including search and rescue, oil spill control and coordinating missions with aircraft. Technical development in the electromagnetic spectrum, remote control gunnery, and non-lethal weapons will also be examined.
