For the first time, UDT will have a theatre dedicated purely to unmanned and autonomous capabilities, taking place on the show floor. The DroneZone will discuss the role of unmanned systems in the increasingly complex underwater battlespace.
Whether stealthily gathering intelligence, detecting and neutralizing mines, hunting submarines or charting the ocean floor, the mastering of autonomy to support these tasks will doubtless be key to future success in contested maritime environments.
The new DroneZone provides a free-to-attend forum outside of the main conference for experts in the unmanned and autonomous domain.
Sessions will take place throughout 26-27 May.
