DSEI 2013 participants discuss importance of strong naval presence

US Navy receives delivery of newest littoral combat ship"

This year's Defence Security and Equipment International conference drew a total of 32,169 visitors - marking a 13 per cent increase over the previous attendance record set in 2011 - and there was a clear theme throughout: building a strong navy.

This year, 1,489 exhibitors showed off new products and solutions, with big-name acts in the defence industry like BAE Systems and Lockheed Martin gracing the showroom floor. Several members of the UK government were also in attendance.

"This exhibition is an excellent example of the opportunities that we can create when government and industry work together, hand-in-hand, with a shared objective," said Philip Hammon, the Secretary of State for Defence and a keynote speaker at the event.

Representatives from 54 countries were on hand to discuss trends in military engineering and other areas, and there was an overwhelming focus among several countries on building up a strong naval presence.

For four days, the docks of the Thames River were transformed into sprawling naval yards that showcased military ships both large and small. All visitors were encouraged to board the ships and see the complex technologies today's warships are outfitted with and explore the many cabins and floors.

Of particular interest was the Dutch Navy's Holland Class Patrol Ship, the $150 million vessel designed by HNLMS Groningen. Germany also showed off its new FGS Magdeburg, while the UK Royal Navy touted its new HMS Tyne patrol vessel.

Several countries attended the event for the first time, including Japan, South Korea, and Chile, while India's presence grew dramatically compared with last year.
