One event, five unique conferences.

Underwater Defence & Security

For three days we will explore the latest developments in Mine Counter Measures and Anti-Submarine Warfare in an essential, stand-alone area that merits the discrete focus this conference will provide.

Delegates will be updated on trends and changes in the operations, tactical employment and sustainability of underwater, surface and airborne Fleets, whilst considering the impact of the latest technological advancements.

Future Surface Fleet

In an expanded offering, now delivering two dedicated theatres, we will analyse designing, building modernising and sustaining fleets throughout their lifecycle.

We will look at how to maximise platform availability with presentations from both a naval and industry angle, learning what needs to be done to enable Fleets to be delivered to time, quality and cost.

The development and maintenance of trusting relationships between the supplier and customer will be at the forefront of issues in this challenging area.

Submarine Technology

The unique capabilities of stealth, silence, lethality, endurance and deniability of submarines, allowing them to operate close to the threat, are a vital component in our defence and deterrence strategy.

It starts with a strategic piece and will move on to the importance of improving sensor performance, combat systems and views on the significance of new technology and innovation within the development of new submarine capability.

Sensors and Safety will feature heavily throughout, as well as survivability and materiel certification.

Surface Fleet Technology

New for 2023, Surface Fleet Technology will focus upon the specific role that emerging and future technologies will play in next generation platforms.

Naval Damage Control

Naval Damage Control is the world’s only meeting that brings together damage control teams, operators, ship owners/Captains, land-based marine fire units and industry under one roof for 2 days of packed information sharing, learning and collaboration. Now in its 8th year, Naval Damage Control is the must-attend event.
