Next February, the UK will host a new meeting aimed at providing an international meetingplace for the international naval powers to discuss the latest threats and how to overcome them.

Chelmsford (I-Newswire) November 20, 2012 - With the underwater environment posing an ever increasing threat for navies worldwide, with particular emphasis on submarine developments, legal challenges, innovative technologies, weapons and unmanned systems, a key event is being held in February 2013 to discuss exactly how nations can work together to overcome them.

Between the 26th and 27th February 2013, delegates from around the world will attend the Underwater Defence and Security event in the UK with the aim of bringing together influential thought leaders to decide upon the future of the underwater environment.

The event, Underwater Defence & Security, which will run for the first time in 2013, will attract an audience consisting of senior and influential naval personnel from every major nation.

The key discussion points will be the very latest issues surrounding all aspects of underwater security including threats, submarine developments, legal aspects, submarine rescue, sonar innovations, anti-submarine warfare, and unmanned technologies.

Underwater Defence & Security 2013, organised by The Development Network, a well-known UK based conference organiser, has a host of flagship events and is often seen as one of the most influential organisations for those wishing to decide upon the future of their maritime security policies.
