Future ASW: Defining & Designing A Full-Spectrum Approach

As non-NATO submarine forces grow in scale and sophistication, its imperative that the Alliance's members and partners come together to agree on the doctrine, training and capability that will support a next-generation approach to undersea warfare.

View Conference Agenda

Our inaugural ASW Forum will bring together operational and capability experts across air, surface and sub-surface to agree on a full-spectrum and multi-domain approach to future ASW. The conference will, in the presence of industry, provide a unique opportunity to understand what next generation platforms should look like, and to overcome limitations to systems and technology integration, force development and training.

As part of a focused session, it will also explore the application of autonomy in the undersea domain, with a view to identifying opportunities and challenges for leveraging it as a core component of the ASW mission set.


Attend Anti Submarine Warfare for Your Opportunity to:

  • Re-capitalising ASW concepts and doctrine to enable high-tempo operations against high-calibre adversarial submarines
  • Delivering a truly joint ASW capability that maximises integration across systems, platforms and domains
  • Generating a next-generation ASW force that leverages synthetic training to support readiness for future undersea warfare
  • Attaining full operating capability for advanced airborne platforms, as they integrate as a core component of the ASW force structure
  • Delivering effect in acoustically challenging environments by leveraging innovations in sonar, undersea communications and autonomy
