“Security is an attempt to try to make the universe static so that we feel safe.”

-Anne Wilson Schaef

Welcome to the latest edition of the number one Defense Career Opportunities Newsletter, “DEFCON-1,” a networking newsletter featuring job opportunities and career advice for those who are part of the global defense, aerospace, maritime, marine technology and security industry.

http://www.yourdefcon1.com/.

I was on travel last week, which explains why the newsletter is a little shorter than usual.

When you learn about a job opportunity in the defense sector, such as a position that comes open with your company, you send me the title, organization, location, and a brief description; link; or contact information, and I’ll share. This is a cooperative network. That means everyone’s participation is required to provide job opportunities to share.

Help the network grow. Sign up a friend. They can join for free simply by sending a blank email to DCO-subscribe@topica.com.

Transitioning, or changing your e-mail address? Don't forget to change your DEFCON – 1 subscription. To unsubscribe, send a blank e-mail from the old account to DCO-unsubscribe@topica.com. Then a blank e-mail from your new account to DCO-subscribe@topica.com. I cannot do this for you.

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.

*** What role do OPVs have to play in the current maritime security

domain?

OFFSHORE PATROL VESSELS 2008

September 29 – 2 October, 2008

Cotone Congressi Genova, Genoa, Italy

www.offshorepatrolvessels.com

Dear Captain Lundquist,

Naval budgets continue to constrict. Maritime security feeds further

more into plans for preserving national security. For many, the answer

lies in increasing hull numbers by building smaller ships. The questions

remain though:

– Do OPVs have any useful role to play inactual combat conditions?

– What is the optimum balance between capability and cost for an OPV?

– What is the best combination of deployable assets for OPVs?

The 3rd annual OPV conference in Genoa, 29th September – 2nd October

2008 will seek to help you answer these questions with your global

peers.

The full conference agenda is now available for download at

www.offshorepatrolvessels.com
