The Royal Institution of Naval Architects
SURV 7 - SURVEILLANCE, SEARCH AND RESCUE CRAFT
27 - 28 May 2009, Poole, UK
First Notice & Call for Papers
The Royal Institution of Naval Architects will continue its successful SURV series of International
Conferences in 2009 now in its seventh edition. Held at the home of the Royal National Lifeboat
Institution in Poole, this is an apt venue for the discussion of such vessels and there will be an opportunity
to view the RNLI's facilities and a range of equipment during the course of the proceedings.
With ever greater recreational and commercial use of the marine environment there is inevitably a
higher rate of incidents where external assistance is required. This increased pressure on resources
provides a new set of challenges that organisations need to adapt to, in order to continue to provide
their high level of service.
The conference will provide a forum for discussion of both military and civilian vessels. We hope
to include papers across the full range of vessels, equipment and methods, used by pilot craft,
coastguards, and police as well as search and rescue organisations. Topics will include analysis of new
designs, applications, and operations of these vessels, as well as review existing vessels and their use
across all marine environments.
RINA invites papers from designers, builders, lifeboat institutions, police forces, coastguard
organisations and operators on the following topics:
Design: Practice, philosophies, testing and development
New Vessels: Innovative features, trials and evaluation
Construction: Materials, techniques and quality control
Equipment: New ideas & products, control systems, navigation, auxiliary equipment
Machinery & Propulsion: Power plant, system layout, propulsion
Operation: Practices, training, health & safety, reliability, and vessel deployment
We are also interested to hear from any organisation wishing to exhibit craft during the conference.
