The American Society of Naval Engineers is proud to present the 2016 Launch & Recovery Symposium. This symposium addresses the launch, recovery, and operations of manned and unmanned vehicles from marine platforms. Manned and unmanned vehicles include helicopters, rotorcraft, fixed-wing aircraft, RHIBs, high-speed craft, tenders, UAV, USV, UUV, and many more. Marine platforms include naval, coast guard, passenger, and commercial ships, as well as offshore platforms and other vessels. The scope of L&R 2016 includes the launch and recovery systems, the host marine platforms, and the vehicles themselves-all of which are evolving at a rapid pace. This is an area of intense research and development in national and international naval, commercial, and academic sectors.
