WATERLOO, U.K. - March 2, 2018 - PRLog -- Europe's leading conference on maritime robotic systems will take place on 16th and 17th May in London. Unmanned Maritime Systems 2018 promises to provide a valuable forum for anyone looking to enhance their unmanned capability.

"During the fiscal 2019 budget release, the U.S. Navy will unveil changes to the number of "mission modules" it will procure for Freedom - and Independence-class littoral combat ships, a program official said Thursday...The three LCS mission modules contain a number of weapons, sensors and unmanned systems used for missions related to surface warfare, mine countermeasures and anti-submarine warfare. Any changes to the existing programs of record could spell out millions of dollars for the companies manufacturing those products." [defensenews].

The US Navy's LCS program office's integration of new unmanned assets in surface warfare, anti-submarine warfare and mine countermeasure modules demonstrates the increasing need for this technology, globally.

The two-day event in May will enable delegates to learn what academia, defence research and procurement agencies have to say on these very topics. Key organisations and topics are provided below:

Unmanned Surface Vehicles & Anti-Submarine Warfare
