The last 30 years has seen a transformation in vehicle performance in the marine and specialist off road sectors, including the expectation to prevent operators from getting in harm’s way, be they professional, private or volunteer. In his highly visual presentation, Steve Austen will draw on his experience of the engineering and organisational challenges of delivering this transformation at the RNLI and SC Group/Supacat, while reducing the risk to the safety and well-being of the operator, and concluding with some common themes we can all identity with.


Steve Austen is Engineering Director and Chief Engineer for SC Group/Supacat. He is a Chartered Engineer, Naval Architect and Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers with 30 years’ experience in R&D, design, supply and support across the composites, defence and marine sectors.
