SINGAPORE – Media RAJAWALISIBER – 20 March 2019 – Returning for its 8th edition, Milipol Asia-Pacific 2019, the region’s flagship international homeland security conference will bring together the region’s leading experts on counter-terrorism, cybersecurity, organised crime and public safety for a three-day conference from 2nd to 4th April at Sands Expo and Convention Centre. The conference will attract over 350 international and regional delegates. Furthermore, the exhibition, which will see more than 300 exhibitors in attendance, showcases the latest and future innovations in border security, crowd control, threat detection systems, search and rescue technology, drone and anti-drone technology and field operation equipment for law enforcement.
Organised by Comexposium Singapore, one of the world’s leading organisers specialising in international Security exhibitions and conferences in Middle East, Indonesia, and Singapore, Milipol Asia-Pacific 2019 is expected to receive over 200 official VIP delegates from Singapore, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Myanmar, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam with over 8000 in attendance. Various Sponsors also include Certis, MSA — The Safety Company, Stelop and Thermoteknix Systems.
“The evolving challenges of today’s regional security landscape require dynamic and relevant solutions. With Asia-Pacific’s most influential thought leaders in homeland security gathered under one roof at Milipol Asia-Pacific 2019, delegates can expect three full days of insightful dialogue on some of the most pressing security challenges faced in the region”, said Mr Andrew Marriott, Managing Director of Comexposium Singapore.
With the terrorist threat ever present, this year’s conference topics will focus extensively on approaches in combatting extremism, radicalisation and transnational terrorism. Delegates can expect to hear insightful speeches on topics like the future of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and regional approaches to the current terrorism landscape. Notable speakers addressing these issues are:
In this evolving age, security professionals must utilise the most effective technological innovations to help them make informed decisions about pressing security issues. To fulfil this need, the second day of this year’s conference will be dedicated to discussing the relevance of artificial intelligence and digital technologies to improve homeland security, with some speaker highlights being:
Exhibitors from 40 countries and regions will display a wide variety of security technologies and innovations to meet the ever-changing needs and challenges that security professionals in the Asia-Pacific region face. Notable exhibitors include Avigilon, Norinco, Rafael, Rohde & Schwarz, Sig Sauer, Stelop and many more.
With terrorist attacks frequently occurring in vulnerable public spaces such as airport terminal entrances, large events and even places of worship, it can be challenging for security professionals to screen crowds without causing massive disruptions. APSTEC Systems will display their Human Security Radar at this year’s exhibition — a walkthrough system that quickly scans multiple persons in real-time to identify items concealed underneath clothes and in body-worn backpacks that may pose a severe threat to the public’s safety.
Beaqon will display a handheld x-ray imager called the HBI-120. Developed by Viken Detection (formerly Heuresis), the device uses backscatter x-ray technology and can scan through different types of materials such as steel, aluminium, wood, rubber, as well as many other materials. Currently a device being used by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the HBI-120 proves to be a cost-effective and fast turn-around time product to reveal concealed narcotics, bulk explosives, currencies and other contraband items at immigration checkpoints.
TRD Singapore is set to showcase the new generation of Drone Defeat Systems with their latest anti-drone product, the Orion-T. Using an integrated system, this compact, light-weight device is able to detect, classify and defeat drones that pose a threat to safety. Weighing less than 3kg, the Orion-T also incorporates spoofing capabilities to defeat enemy drones.
