Stand Number: C05
This will be the 11th iteration of this meeting hosted by Navy Leaders, the third time they have combined their 3 events: Underwater Defence & Security, Future Surface Fleet and Submarine Technology. In 2024, Navy Leaders also plan to introduce a 4th event: Surface Fleet Technology.
The intent is for a wide cross-section of attendees from international navies, defence industry, academia to explore how to align
in common purpose that assures naval capabilities match to the strategic, operational, technological opportunities and demands
of the future.
Underwater Defence & Security
This will be split across MCM and ASW 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 UW, surface and airborne Fleets, whilst considering the impact of the latest technological developments.
Future Surface Fleet
This 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 and learn 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.
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. Sensor performance, combat systems and views on the significance of new technology and innovation within the development of new submarine capability will be shared. Sensors and Safety will feature heavily throughout, as well as survivability and materiel certification.
Surface Fleet Technology
Following the feedback from 2022, Navy Leaders has narrowed the lens of their technological partners and enabling organisations to look solely at the options for developing capabilities for the surface. Looking at C2, materials, weapons, ISR and more, this promises to be one the must attend meetings for the surface community.
