The Next Generation Programme

DisTec Hero

Gearing up the future of undersea defence

As the largest international event dedicated to undersea defence technology, UDT reflects the community’s desire for continuous learning and development. We were delighted to bring back the Next Generation (NextGen) Programme for UDT 2023, which allowed free access to over 60 budding undersea defence enthusiasts who have a keen interest in exploring the latest advancements within the industry.

Through panel discussions, interactive workshops and networking opportunities, our experts dived deeper into a range of topics, giving the next generation of undersea technology the chance to engage with industry professionals and showcase their talent.
