DoN approval letter for government attendance

This 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.

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.

Make connections with professionals from the active duty Navy, key Navy Secretariat, the Pentagon, SYSCOM program offices, Navy & University labs, and the defense industrial base.

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