We are pleased to announce the 5th annual Unmanned Maritime Systems Technology conference, between the 11th and 12th of May 2022.

Uncrewed systems are becoming an increasingly essential part of the world’s fleets as modern navies seek new ways to complete dangerous tasks faster, easier, and with fewer sailors and marines in harm’s way. To enable this, leading navies have recently been increasing their investment in uncrewed technology, so it has never been more crucial to explore the latest advances and opportunities and to align priorities between allied nations.

Unmanned Maritime Systems Technology 2022 is a crucial forum for the discussion of current and future projects and programmes delivering uncrewed and autonomous technology. Bringing together key planners and decision makers from across the NATO-aligned world, this is the only event providing holistic coverage of uncrewed systems across the full maritime domain, including undersea, surface, and aerial environments. As the world's leading event, this conference is the global meeting point for the naval uncrewed systems community.

Key topics to be discussed include:

  • Autonomy for MCM and ASW operations
  • updates on key uncrewed platform programmes (such as UUV and USVs)
  • preparing and supporting uncrewed systems for operations
  • Crewed/Uncrewed Teaminhg
  • UMS interoperability initiatives
  • uncrewed hydrography and oceanography
  • and many more.
