The International Mine Warfare Technology Symposium series is the only Navy-sponsored event solely focused on naval mine warfare and associated technologies and is only held every other year. As with past symposia, this conference will be unclassified with foreign participation expected and welcome.
Naval and Industry plenary speakers will address a broad range of topics including the current status and future requirements of mine warfare technology. Break-out sessions will showcase basic scientific and emerging technology research with applications to the undersea environment and specialized sessions focused on Littoral Combat Ship-centric mine warfare, advanced undersea warfare systems, unmanned systems and associated technologies, mine warfare applications in Maritime Homeland Defense, environmental research and developments, operational data flow and communications, and other related areas.
