SPEAKER HIGHLIGHTS

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:

* PROFESSOR KUMAR RAMAKRISHNA, Associate Professor & Head of Policy
Studies and Head of National Security Studies Programme S. Rajaratnam
School of International Studies, Singapore
* ALI SOUFAN, Chairman & President, The Soufan Group, United States of
America

University Malaysia
* ROMAN QUAEDVLIEG, Former Head of the Australian Border Force

In this evolving age, security professionals must utilise the most

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:

EXHIBITOR HIGHLIGHTS

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.
