Manning & Automation symposium
Various technical innovation projects are currently underway, including Manning & Automation, about which a symposium was held recently. Some 125 delegates from the Royal Netherlands Navy, the Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO), related training institutes, the defence industry (including RH Marine and Thales) and knowledge institute TNO met in Den Helder. They watched demos and tested the latest techniques themselves. The programme should lead to the optimal deployability and safety of the ships.
The Manning & Automation roadmap started in 2014 and is expected to run until 2030.
