FRC International to host the upcoming Crew Systems Integration (CSI) conference in Poole, UK.

The international conference includes over 20 presentations focussing on 9 integrated topics for the RIB and high speed craft sector. Keynote speakers include former Royal Navy Rear Admiral Chris Parry, now a noted strategic consultant and geopolitical forecaster.

Human Systems Integration (HSI) is a recognised requirement for many maritime organisations. CSI 2013 will cover a wide range of solutions now available for the professional operator. A challenge faced by the professional sector is integrating many disparate areas that are required to deliver enhanced performance and safety at sea. The conference will cover the full range of factors that can potentially improve operations. Topics include ‘Crew – Craft – Training’ and the interface between them.

To complete the integration picture the conference will also present the latest understanding of Whole Body Vibration (WBV), Repeated Shock (RS) and the increasing demands for protecting personnel with the use of Unmanned Surface Vessels (USV). The overall objective is to deliver an up to date overview of effective operational capability.

CSI 2013 is an independent event that is relevant to all professional operators, boat builders, equipment manufacturers and designers. In addition to networking with their peers attendees from end-user organisations will learn from industry participants showing state of the art solutions and the latest developments in technology. The integrated topics include:

CRAFT & EQUIPMENT: CSI 2013 will highlight the rapid development of new craft and equipment in the sub 24 metre (80 feet) sector. Presentations will show how operators can incorporate these developments into their requirements and capability.
CREW: The conference will examine the demands on both crew and professional passengers, and how personnel can be supported to be more effective at all levels.
TRAINING: CSI 2013 will highlight current developments in training programmes and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that are being developed globally.
HUMAN FACTORS ENGINEERING: The conference will highlight developments in human factors and ergonomics specific to fast craft design and operations.
QUALIFICATIONS: CSI 2013 will highlight the work being undertaken to develop an international set of qualifications for the sub 24 metre professional sector.
SIMULATION: The conference will discuss different types of craft and equipment simulation and how it can be used to enhance operational effectiveness and safety.
REPEATED SHOCK & WHOLE BODY VIBRATION: CSI 2013 will highlight industry best practice and developments related to the management and control of RS & WBV.
UNMANNED SURFACE VESSELS: The conference will examine the developments in unmanned systems and the opportunities for the marine sector.
RIB & HSC OPERATIONS: CSI 2013 will demonstrate how fast craft operations are changing and what the future may hold for crews and their organisations.

The Crew Systems Integration conference will be held from 2nd to 4th July 2013 at RNLI Lifeboat College, Poole, UK.
