SMi reports: Mine countermeasures (MCM) is a key topic of discussion at the 4th Annual Unmanned Maritime Systems Conference in London, this November

The challenge posed by potential adversary mining capabilities is real and growing. For all navies, there is only one way to completely “Take the sailor out of the minefield,” and that is to leverage unmanned technologies to hunt and destroy mines from a distance.* By embracing technological advancements in unmanned systems, such as UUVs and USVs, they could sweep large portions of the sea while minimizing the risk to sailors.

For this reason, unmanned maritime systems for mine countermeasures (MCM) is a key topic of discussion at this year’s Unmanned Maritime Systems Technology Conference in London on the 25th-26th November 2020.

For those interested in attending, there is a £100 early bird discount ending on 30th September 2020. Register at http://www.umsconference.com/pr6telco
