Creating Effect from the Joint Sea Base: The RUSI Maritime Warfare Conference 2005

13 December 2005, 0:00 to 15 December 2005, 0:00

By definition for a maritime nation, maritime power is a central tenet of the expeditionary strategy. This maritime contribution can apply across the spectrum of operations – from naval diplomacy, to high intensity combat, to co-ordinating humanitarian operations – and is founded upon the ability to deliver effect through manoeuvre from the joint sea base.

With emphasis upon the contribution of the three Armed Services to joint operations via the maritime environment, the RUSI Future Maritime Warfare Conference 2005 will look at the role of maritime forces in defence policy, and at how maritime power can deliver and facilitate manoeuvre and effect – and in particular – flexibility in approach and volume in firepower - from the joint sea base to enable maritime forces to support, shape and engage in the wider battlespace.

The conference, supported by the Royal Navy ( ), will look at how joint forces are creating effect from the joint sea base.
