Anti-Submarine Warfare > Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia > 17th-18th October 2012
Debating the dramatic rise of underwater stealth capability
Tangent Link is delighted to announce the launch of a new and fully focused two-day Military conference and exhibition aimed at the Asian region. Anti-Submarine Warfare will debate the dramatic rise of underwater stealth capability of regional powers.
With Asia’s economic prosperity depending on seaborne trade, the threat from the submarine continues and this is reflected by the growth of submarine forces within the region. Modern submarines can be used to threaten vital shipping lanes, insert military personnel, lay minefields, launch cruise and guided missile, and attack enemy ships and submarines.
The availability of sophisticated submarines from Western and Russian powers provides regional Navies with the ability to fast track technology, training and doctrine at an unprecedented level. Over the coming decade, the Asian region will have a much greater capability to conduct submarine operations in major shipping lanes across the region and undertake enhanced surveillance and intelligence roles as required. Anti-Submarine Warfare will look at this upward trend of capability and debate all aspects of technology and operations that now exist in the region.
In response to the new technical threat, ASW aircraft are also playing a major role in maintaining these safe shipping lanes. Both fixed and rotary-winged aircraft are deployed very effectively. Both are force multipliers, and their presence enhances underwater and anti-submarine warfare capability which can search a large area of water along a coastline or within the vicinity of a naval fleet at sail.
