Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) are the primary means of Coastal Water & Maritime Homeland Defense. Unfortunately, there are major capability gaps in the US maritime, Coast Guard and Custom Border Protection interdiction strategy. These gaps can be closed with more effective OPVs, but to do this, decision makers must have access to practical, innovative programs that are cost-efficient.
OPV Summit will allow the Coast Guard, Navy, ship builders, ship designers and industry related professionals to gain a greater understanding of:
* Maritime Security Evolution and Increased Importance of OPVs
* Ship Structural Integrity & Mission-Readiness Advancements
* OPV Concept Solutions for Emerging Asymmetric Threats
