Introduction

The next annual Joint Undersea Warfare Technology Fall Conference will be held Sept 26-29, 2011 at U.S. Naval Submarine Base New London.

This year’s theme is: Undersea Warfare Command in the 21st Century. This theme focuses on the execution of Undersea Warfare and it allows discussion of all levels of command - unit, squadron, group, theater, area, and force.

The conference concentrates on the Navy's key core competency mission of countering submarine and mine threats to the free and open flow of sea borne commerce and to the conduct of power projection from the sea.

All Navy platforms and elements of the Navy force structure are involved in undersea warfare: submarines, surface combatants, fixed and rotary wing aircraft, surveillance units, and the Navy's command and control infrastructure. The USW Division has five active Technical Committees which allows the UWD to properly focus on the navy's mission areas: Sensor Systems, Mine Warfare Systems, Undersea Vehicles (including weapons), Aviation, and C4I and Combat Systems. This year's conference will include a new focus session on Warfighter Performance with emphasis on the following areas: Human Systems Integration (HSI); Operator Capability; Training; Health and Wellness.

At this conference, attendees will:

- Gain insight on the latest requirements and developments in undersea warfare; countering submarine and mine threats; and power projection from the sea
- Join professionals from the active duty Navy, key Navy Secretariat, the Pentagon, SYSCOM   program offices, Navy & University labs, and the defense industrial base
- Make valuable connections with like-minded professionals at networking social functions like the popular Clambake

This conference is classified Secret U.S. Only. There will be no exhibits at this event.
