WARSHIP 2022: Designing Warships for the Future

8-9 June 2022




“Designing warships for the future”

The increasing complex warship design requires an effective engineering assistance, design configuration control, supply chain and inventory management to meet operational requirements. With vessel design lives between 25 and 50 years naval architects need to consider the effects of current and future technological and operational developments.

The conference will present technical developments in the design, construction, and support of Surface ships.


  • Sustainability, future fuels and reduced operating costs
  • Supportability and availability
  • Future upgrade, modularity and adaptability design
  • Operability & inter-operability warship design
  • Crew reduction
  • Life Cycle and Extension
  • Digitalisation
  • Additive Manufacturing
