Exploring the future of Joint Personnel Recovery: A military and commercial crisis management collaboration

Despite the current drawbacks from Afghanistan, the growing presence of operations in increasingly hostile and unfamiliar environments is relentless. In a decade synonymous with unpredictable political unrest, it is imperative that forces and organisations remain at the forefront of technological, strategic and training developments in order to remain adept for what the future has to bring.  In light of looming threats in Eastern Europe, as well as conflict in Africa, never has been a better time to discuss the latest in Joint Personnel Recovery.

DefenceIQ is delighted to announce the 10th Anniversary of our Joint Personnel Recovery Conference. Joint Personnel Recovery 2014 will provide an unparalleled insight into the front line experiences of JPR and C/SAR crews, future military requirements in unfamiliar combat zones and acknowledge the growing phenomenon of civilian JPR; derived from the increasing prevalence of international corporations and NGOs that operate in hostile environments. 

Central themes to be addressed at Joint Personnel Recovery 2014 include:

  1. Future training requirements associated with the need to respond to high level threats from Eastern Europe as opposed to low level threats experienced in Afghanistan in which operating at maximum capability was not such a priority
  2. A discussion of combat search and recue (CSAR) capability gaps when looking ahead to unfamiliar combat zones including Central and Northern Africa and Eastern Europe
  3. An examination and case-study reflection of  large corporations and NGOs that are increasingly choosing to operate in hostile environments, which will allow for joint industry and military collaboration to discover best practice

Why you should attend Joint Personnel Recovery 2014:

  • Discover the current training offerings in a variety of nations to best prepare oneself for effective response to CSAR, SAR and JPR
  • Discover how technological advances will change the future of JPR
  • Compare the experiences and practices of private industry as opposed to military procedures when conducting Joint Personnel Recovery
