This year's theme "Maintaining Dominance in the Undersea Domain During SSN Gap Years" speaks to the Navy's key core competency mission of countering undersea threats to the free and open flow of sea borne commerce and to maintaining 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 in which the UWD focuses on the navy's mission areas: Sensor Systems, Mine Warfare Systems, Undersea Vehicles (including weapons), Aviation, and C4I and Combat Systems and Warfighter Performance.


  • Gain insight into the latest requirements and developments in undersea warfare; countering submarine and mine threats; and power projection from the sea
  • Meet and hear from operational, acquisition, and technology professionals including; active duty Navy leaders, key Navy Secretariat and Pentagon leadership and personnel, SYSCOM program office leadership and personnel, Navy & University lab leaders and principal investigators, and leaders and members of the defense industrial base
  • Build relationships with like-minded professionals at networking functions
