    This is about launching small craft from big ships and may have some interest to some of you.

    As a side note, I've been to a number of events at MITAGS and it is a very nice facilty for doing a meeting in the Washington DC / Baltimore area - It's right near BWI airport and has a free shuttle. It even has hotel rooms (some of which are "pet-friendly")


    November 19-20, 2014
    The Conference Center at the Maritime Institute (MITAGS)

    The American Society of Naval Engineers is proud to present Launch & Recovery Symposium 2014: Launch & Recovery of Manned and Unmanned Vehicles from Surface Platforms. Launch & Recovery 2014 will be held on November 19-20, 2014 at the Conference Center at the Maritime Institute (MITAGS) in Linthicum, MD. The theme for 2014 is Mission Effectiveness, Safety and Affordability.

    This symposium addresses the launch, recovery, and operations of manned and unmanned vehicles from marine platforms. Manned and unmanned vehicles include helicopters, rotorcraft, fixed-wing aircraft, RHIBs, high-speed craft, tenders, UAV, USV, UUV, and many more. Marine platforms include naval, coast guard, passenger, and commercial ships, as well as offshore platforms and other vessels. The scope of L&R 2014 includes the launch and recovery systems, the host marine platforms, and the vehicles themselves-all of which are evolving at a rapid pace. This is an area of intense research and development in national and international naval, commercial, and academic sectors.
