Unmanned Maritime Systems - 08/01/2018

SMi's Unmanned Maritime Systems returns to London for its 2nd successful year

Unmanned Maritime Systems returns to London for its 2nd successful year, on 16th and 17th May 2018

SMi’s Unmanned Maritime Systems returns to London for its 2nd successful year, on 16th and 17th May 2018. SMi has recognised that there is a continuing need to consider how unmanned platforms will be integrated into the fleets of the future. Mixing the new ‘information exploitation’ techniques with a new generation of autonomous systems, navies are building strategic advantage by using these platforms for ISR, mine clearance and delivering lethal capability.

The two-day conference will build on the momentum last year’s conference and the Royal Navy’s exercise Unmanned Warrior have generated within the naval community. As autonomous systems – ranging from aerial drones to underwater submarines – continue to be developed as a solution to the operational requirements of maritime forces, unmanned systems are employed to tackle problems such as mine clearance – without any threat to frontline human personnel.
