The DeSRA 2017 Conference took place at the NATO STO CMRE facilities in La Spezia, Italy, on 2-4 October 2017. Its overarching objective was to bring together personnel from the military, civilian, industry and research communities to discuss and identify environmental risks, planning shortfalls and ways-ahead to assist decision makers and improve operational effectiveness. These Conference Proceedings contain a total of 27 abstracts covering all the topics of the conference, such as: Recognized Environmental Picture (REP) and Risk Assessment; Environmental Information Flow for Decision Support and Command and Control (C2); Maritime Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (MISR); and Operational Experimentation (OPEX) Opportunities.

Besides the speakers of the 27 Abstracts published in these proceedings, additional military and civilian personnel attended the DeSRA 2017 Conference to learn about state-of-the-art techniques and systems on the topics of the conference.
