NDIA’s Undersea Warfare Division fosters the exchange between government and industry of technical information and expansion of research and development in areas related to undersea warfare. To this end, the division furthers communication by providing a variety of ways for government and industry to work together to solve problems, identify affordable solutions and meet specific requirements. The group also supports both government and industry with advice on undersea warfare policies and acquisition planning.


The division strives to:

  • Focus on critical undersea warfare areas related to the development, production, testing and logistic support of underwater combat systems including mines, torpedoes, manned and unmanned underwater vehicles, countermeasures, sensors, weapon control and handling equipment; and the integration of systems aboard aircraft, ships and submarines.
  • Provide periodic forums for government, academia and industry personnel at all levels to exchange information and views as they seek solutions to undersea warfare problems.
  • Conduct studies and prepare reports in response to requests from the U.S. Navy to recommend solutions to specific problems or issues related to undersea warfare.
