UDT 2019 will be in Stockholm and the conference will consider the key issues faced by countries like Sweden as they address their needs in the global underwater defence and security environment. Many nations, such as other Baltic States and those in South East Asia, tackle a similar mix of challenges in the underwater environment: proximity to a key global trading artery; shallow littoral waters with many islands; critical national and international infrastructure in the maritime environment; complex maritime boundaries and borders; and a need to operate in the global oceanic environment in order to assert national and international interests.
Responding to Sweden’s “Total Defence” approach, UDT 2019 will examine how the underwater defence and security environment fits into a Total Defence architecture. The conference will consider how incremental developments in established technologies are forging new ways of employing underwater capabilities in pursuit of the traditional underwater defence disciplines of submarine warfare, ASW, mining and mine countermeasures, and military diving. In recognition of the demands of a Total Defence concept the linkages between the capabilities developed for war fighting and the preservation of security in the underwater environment in times of tension will be explored.
