NLA were delighted to attend the recent Naval Remains Seminar chaired by the National Museum of the Royal Navy.
The event, held at Admiralty House, London, focused on the challenges of monitoring and managing underwater naval remains. Threats to these sites include criminal activity such as unauthorised salvage but also risks associated with damage to wrecks that in some instances contain unstable explosives and quantities of fuel oil.
NLA provided insights in maritime surveillance applications and satellite enabled technologies that could be transposed from other Blue Economy disciplines to support the monitoring and management of wreck sites.
