Enhancing Maritime Force Structure in Africa
Force structure of military entities plays a key role in preserving the sovereignty of several African countries and maritime force structure is no exception. In fact, with the increasing maritime piracy, terrorist attacks, and other illegal activities on the continent, maritime force structure has become of utmost importance to African countries in order to ensure vessel traffic safety (VTS), protect and manage fisheries and ensure the security of their waters.
In light of this, this DigiConnect boardroom is hosted to discuss how African navy and maritime entities can enhance their force structure through utilizing innovative detection, guidance and coordination surveillance and reconnaissance solutions. This digital boardroom will also identify main challenges faced and explore how to overcome them by utilizing key techniques such as, Wide Area Detection; tracking of low-level and high-flying aircraft and surface vessel hostile targets; effective monitoring and policing of illegal fishing activities, immigration, drug trafficking, piracy and terrorist attacks to provide layered and strengthened protection for the African region and to facilitate achieving ‘’Vision 2020:2030’’ strategic goals.
