Unmanned Maritime Systems Technology 2020

SMi Group reports: Senior representatives from the Royal Navy show their support and will be speaking at the Unmanned Maritime Systems Technology Conference in London, this May.

The increase in funding will be allocated to two new mine-hunter vessels with cutting-edge sonars to enable remote mine-hunting at higher range, speed and accuracy in the Gulf, as well as a new joint military and industry hi-tech accelerator, NavyX. *

With that in mind, SMi Group's 4th annual Unmanned Maritime Systems Technology conference will be held in London on 13th - 14th May 2020. Delegates will be briefed on the latest updates on NavyX, the Royal Navy's new venture designed to rapidly bring autonomous systems into naval service in order to give modern navies the advantage with the current warfighting edge as well as into the future.

For those interested in attending, the biggest early bird discount of ?400 will expire on Friday 31st January. Register at http://www.umsconference.com/openpr2
