UK Royal Navy to announce disruptive technologies interests

In a small revision to the planned MAST Advanced Workshop on disruptive technologies, syndicate leaders will give a plenary presentation to participants in the opening session.

Each will discuss their own immediate views on:

  • Which disruptive technologies will be needed to keep navies capable in the 10-year-and-beyond timeframe
  • Which technologies are likely to be the most disruptive, and where should defence contractors focus their attention
  • How can current procurement processes be adapted to ensure the invested technologies are still relevant and capable when delivered
