The DisTec Undersea Challenge invites innovators and progressive organisations to showcase their solutions which can disrupt the undersea defence environment as we know it.

This opportunity offers the defence community, and those currently serving other industry verticals, to demonstrate recent technological advances which are applicable to the undersea domain. An expert judging panel, comprising representatives from military, trade press and industry, will assess each entry in a competitive digital environment.
