Submarine Operations and Requirements 2013 Conference
Delivering Affordable Technology for Maritime Deterrence

27 February, 2013 - 28 February, 2013, London, United Kingdom

Submarines have long provided Navy’s and political planners with a vital strategic and operational deterrent to would be aggressors. However, the subtle shift away from blue water operations to littoral and coastal endeavours is changing the way in which submarines are deployed and the capabilities they need to maintain. Furthermore, with emerging military powers looking to develop their own underwater capabilities, the submariners operating environment is becoming ever more complicated.

We are delighted to announce the return of our 4th Annual Submarine Operations and Requirements conference. The event continues to provide a unique opportunity as Europe’s only dedicated submarine event to discuss recent operations and emerging requirements with commanding officers from around the world. With dedicated exhibition facilities and networking sessions, it is the perfect place for senior military and industry partners to debate the changing mission sets and future role of the submarine.

Top Reasons to Attend Submarine Operations and Requirements 2013:

  • Unique opportunity for a two-way information exchange with senior representatives from military and industry on the future of the submarine in contemporary operations
  • Evaluate potential capability gaps and areas requiring development, and task your resources accordingly
  • Develop new contacts in our dedicated networking sessions to facilitate greater partnering and co-operation going forward

“A unique opportunity to share and learn lessons from contemporary operations and discuss possible developments for the next generation of submarines”
– Captain Marc Elsensohn MSc, Captain Submarines, Royal Netherlands Navy

“An excellent chance to learn more about products, programmes and operational feedback”
– Captain Aslak Heen, Outgoing Commanding Officer, Submarine Fleet, Norwegian Navy

“An invaluable opportunity to share experiences amongst submarine operating nations.”
– Commander Silva Gouveia, Portuguese Navy

“I appreciated the wide variety of speakers, from both the operational point of view and the scientific/engineering perspective. Very Valuable”
– Eric Fusil, DCNS
