British Pugwash, in collaboration with the University of Leicester and BASIC, will hold a conference on:

THE IMPACT OF EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES ON THE FUTURE OF SSBNs

Tuesday September 13th, National Liberal Club, Whitehall, London

The conference will address the strategic challenges posed by evolving new technologies and how this is shaping future warfare, particularly for the undersea battle space.

We will have presentations from leading scientists, technical experts and industry on breakthrough technologies in undersea sensing, communications, robotics and computing.

The final session will be a panel-led discussion on what the implications might be as these technologies mature for the development of counter technologies for submarine stealth, deterrence stability, and the decision to field a nuclear deterrent on submarines into the medium term.

This conference is free but registration is required. To register please email:c.a.naughton15@gmail.com
