Japan’s First-ever International Defence Event

The 12th MAST – the only conference and exhibition series for senior-level maritime* defence & security operators and technologists is exclusively and officially supported by the Ministry of Defense (Japan)Defense Technology Foundation

MAST Asia 2015, Yokohama Japan, 13-15 May 2015 will take place under the auspices of the Defense Technology Foundation, endorsed by Japan’s Ministry of Defense (MOD), Ministry of Trade, Economy and Industry (METI), Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF), with support of the US Navy’s 7th Fleet Command, Australian Department of Defence, and UKTI.

This “first in class event” will be the first in a series of events to be held in Yokohama (adjacent to the US and Japanese naval bases in Yokosuka) uniting participants from both Asian (not least Japan) and ROTW navies, coast guards and ground defence forces.

To meet leading naval/military operators and technologists from Asia and ROTW, in Japan, and discover future and state-of-the-art platforms, systems and technologies, there is literally only one event… MAST is a MUST!

* Undersea, Surface, Air & Space, and Cyber Platforms, Systems, and Technologies

Long established as the only international conference and exhibition dedicated to senior-level technologists in maritime defence and security, MAST promotes debate amongst experts from surface, undersea, and air & space domains, giving new perspectives on developments to meet future capabilities.

MAST boasts an unmatched, diverse global profile of participants, and – over three days of discussion, discovery and debate – delivers “real solutions to real-world problems” (Richard Scott, Jane’s Naval Consultant)

Impressive line-ups of keynote speakers deliver ‘views from the top’, setting the themes for “MAST week”. Plenary speakers offer debate on another key topical/regional issues. Within the framework this creates, parallel technical sessions are populated with speakers with world-leading credentials in their specialist fields (many appear at other conferences as their keynote speakers!).

ALL papers to given at MAST are guaranteed 100% exclusive by their authors – if you don’t hear it at MAST… you won’t hear it at all!

Discover solutions from the most innovative and world-leading maritime defence and security manufacturers and suppliers, agencies, research and technology labs, and academia.

All planning of MAST exhibitions is guided by an independent Exhibition Steering Group (ESG) to complement discussion on future technologies in MAST conferences, but to appeal to visitors as a stand-alone event.

As a result of the ESG activities, features in the FREE-OF-CHARGE exhibition include Product briefings, iPad3 draws, Happy Hours, other hospitality offerings, and much more besides.

Ship Visits
