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.


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.
