Introduction

SECNAV approval granted! Download/Print/View (PDF) the approval memo.

This annual 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, and Warfighter Performance. 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.

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

Opportunity to publish in the Journal of Underwater Acoustics (JUA) technical papers presented at NDIA Fall Conference (Groton):

The Journal of Underwater Acoustics (JUA) is sponsored by the Office of Naval Research. Begun in 1950 and operational in 1951, the Journal was initially to report on the Proceedings of the Underwater Sound Symposium and quickly expanded to include other scholarly contributions that were considered restricted due to their Undersea Warfare importance. The Journal management, editorship, and location have varied over the years, but the Journal has remained faithful to the charge of quality information.
 
The work involved for authors submitting papers would be minimal, primarily to ensure the paper correctly and accurately is what he/she requires. The JUA staff at Penn State has editing and formatting capability and would make only minor editorial changes to ensure consistency, accuracy, and correctness. Please contact us to arrange paper submission:
