Warship 2018: Procurement of Future Surface Vessels 2018
Modern navies are increasingly having to manage the trade-off between capability and cost. Versatility, flexibility, and affordability are key criteria which designers need to balance as warships become an exportable commodity, where market value may be just as important as the strategic value of any newly built vessel. Many nations are designing vessels with exportability in mind, this can mean that the Navy needs to accept some compromises to achieve this. On the other hand other nations are looking to build up their sovereign capability or to create jobs in country for national prosperity. In this scenario the nation must select a partner who can provide some degree of technology transfer and the key driver may not necessarily be the ships capability.

Warship 2017: Naval Submarines & UUVs
The global submarine market is expected to experience growth in the next few years. North America and Europe are key markets, however there is an expanding interest in the Asia-Pacific region which will also drive growth in the market over the next ten years.
Governments wishing to acquire submarine capability are under increasing pressure to make budget savings in their new build projects. This has encouraged a preference in using off the shelf components, over bespoke solutions, and a focus on cost reduction throughout the in-service life of the boat.

Warship 2016: Advanced Technologies In Naval Design & Construction
Modern warships are extremely complex and technologically advanced engineering systems. In the period from the initial concept to the final construction the number of different strategic environments in which the vessel may need to operate, may not yet be fully defined. The challenge is to deliverer a design that can meet this need for increased flexibility within a framework of stricter budget requirements and environmental constraints.
The emphasis for the Warship 2016 Conference will be very much on advanced and future technologies. It will provide the opportunity to both present advanced technologies which have been developed, and technologies which will shortly become available to the ship designer, builder and operator of naval vessels, and to provide update on future developments.

Warship 2015: Surface Vessels
Modern navies are a trade-off between advanced technologies and cost, in both construction and operation. Versatility, flexibility, and affordability are key criteria which governments need to balance as warships become an exportable commodity, where market value is just as important as the strategic value of any newly built vessel.
