aswClarion Events presents another must attend conference for those concerned about current capability challenges and skills in ASW. It will be held on the First and Second of December in London, U.K.

‘Submarines are decisive force projection and sea denial platforms, whose numbers, utility and impact look set to increase as geo-strategic competition re-emerges and irregular activity grows at sea in the coming years. Developed states have failed to invest sufficiently in the skills and technologies necessary to counter a wide range of modern submarines and mini-submarines, with the result that even modest submarine capabilities are likely to pose significant threats, both to the international system and to naval and other expeditionary forces.’

Rear Admiral (Ret’d) Chris Parry, Former Director General, Development, Concepts and Doctrine, UK Ministry Of Defence
There has never been a more appropriate time for the world’s key stakeholders in ASW to meet and discuss their capability challenges. With the diversion of platforms away from ASW, pressures on military spending and the continued debate over the growing underwater threat there is no doubt there is a major gap in the ability to detect and neutralise these threats. The conference will cover the key issues in ASW including:

• What are the current and emerging underwater threats?
• To what extent are we going to sustain our open ocean ASW capability?
• Do we know enough about ASW in the littoral environment?
• How do we best integrate future ASW capability and how can it be affordable?

Anti-submarine Warfare 2009 will bring together personnel from across the ASW community, technical and scientific leaders, long-term ASW commitments and requirements personnel and organisations at the forefront of ASW solution development.
At this conference you will:

• Learn from other leading nations and commands in the field of ASW
• Identify and understand the evolving underwater threats
• Network with 200+ ASW specialists
• See the latest solutions from industry

Anti-submarine Warfare 2009 will be the event that will aim to answer the central question – how must we embrace and undertake future ASW operations?
