Due to our military’s legacy systems, future mission success relies on the investment and modernization of patrol boats, cutters, and systems. That's why IDGA is delighted to introduce the Patrol Boats & Cutters Summit (PCB 2017), taking place September 27 - 29 in Norfolk, VA.
PBC 2017 will facilitate critical discussions on current requirements & challenges within patrol boat operations, as well as planned improvements in responding to maritime incidents.
