Surface Warships 2021 Agenda


 Join us for Surface Warships 2021 as we continue the discussion on the opportunities of digitisation and the peculiarities of maritime power projection in an information-dominated battlefield.We are seeing a return to great power competition, the rise of global information systems, spectacular technological advances and the growing rate of asymmetric engagement.

The Pandemic has accelerated many of these trends and posed a great challenge to the resilience of national maritime capabilities. It is time to renew the competitive edge to fight and win at sea.
