Submarines are among the most complex of engineering products, comparable in complexity with aerospace projects such as the space shuttle. To design, manufacture and support them in service requires a sophisticated industrial base and the willingness to incur the long term cost of ownership. The recent entry into servive of the Royal Navy's Astute Class demonstrates the advancements made in submarine technology. Operational limits are being challenged, as the available technology becomes less of a restraint.
Warship 2014 will also include the rapidly growing new field of military Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs). The reliance on Remotely Operated, and Remotely Towed, underwater TV's) in survey activities has slowly diminished in modern navies. The developments of much more sophisticated autonomous vehicles (AOV) has led to their integration into a much wider network of both manned and unmanned vessels. As on land, UUV's today are becomming a vital part of the current focus on 'network-orientated' warfare.
To further investigate this aspect of the industry, RINA invites papers on all aspects of the design, construction and operation of Naval Submarines and UUV's including the following topics:
