Focus Day Stream 1: Submarines
Stay Hunting and Avoid Being Hunted
Interest in submarine programmes has reached unprecedented levels as countries realise the cost benefits in support of national interests of maintaining a covert underwater presence which is fully integrated with their surface navy and air forces. This focus day, chaired by Commodore (Retd) Ian McGhie, Former Captain Faslane Flotilla, Royal Navy, will dissect some of the technologies and programmes in the undersea domain and the effect these are having on Naval tactics.
INCREASING UNDERWATER SURVEILLANCE
Submarines are fast becoming an integral element of the underwater environment, becoming a ‘node’ for network centric warfare from which many types of operations can be mounted. This aim will not work without superior knowledge of their surroundings and it starts with ensuring their surveillance is accurate and stealthy.
PLATFORM DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMES
Processing power has opened a new realm of possibilities with submarine designers now able to factor previously unreachable technology. The day will open with a look at some of the key programmes and how technology has influenced this process.
Conventional submarines are being designed with multi missions at its core; whether insertion of SF, find, track or defence careful consideration must be made of the weight and ability to withstand pressure of its payload. Some countries have external attachments whilst others utilise torpedo tubes and this session will focus on some of the options available.
Underwater Defence & Security 2018 will bring together the underwater defence community for three days of meetings and discussions. Please download the confirmed agenda.
