Take Part



Last year, the Military Diver Capabilities conference welcomed more than 100 delegates representing 14 nations.

Presentations on developments in tactical EOD operations, submarine rescue applications, and new tactical diving set developments were among a range of relevant and novel topics.

The 2020 programme will be broadly split into three areas across 8-9 December, with a focus on concepts and technologies relevant across the various sub-disciplines of military diving such as:

  • Diver Mobility & Delivery

  • Diver Safety & Performance

  • Human-Machine Teaming

Who attends?

This forum has become a unique event for all those playing key roles in this challenging and specialist field and attendees will benefit from leading, contributing or listening to discussions. We are looking for topics of relevance to the community and welcome your involvement as a speaker or delegate to represent your interests in the Military Diver Battlespace.

Speaker applications

Submissions were welcomed from naval and military personnel with operational perspectives as well as all those working on R&D projects aimed at improving the effectiveness, efficiency and safety of divers across the spectrum of naval and military undersea operations. Applications have closed for 2020.

When submitting a proposal, we asked authors to:

  • Identify which of the three primary areas their proposal falls under. If another, please specify and all constructive submissions will be considered equally.
  • Submit a brief abstract that summarises the key elements of the proposed talk, including how this contributes to the objectives of the conference.
