A timely exhibition and conference covering the full range of unclassified naval requirements and including the latest in warship design, ship systems and equipment, naval armament and electronics is to take place in Europe, June 6-8, 1978.

The first of its kind to be organized on such a broad scale, the International Naval Technology Expo—INTEC '78—is to be held in the Ahoy' Exhibition Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and will attract top-ranking naval officers and procurement officials from defense establishments throughout Europe and the maritime nations of the world.
