·          We now live in a world of great power dynamics. Navies need to maintain a persistently visible force and increase lethality to ensure security of national waters. What is the right approach to shipbuilding and modernisation of the existing fleet? How can industry support operational versatility and multi-mission modularity? What is the necessary force structure for the future operating environment?
·          The battlespace is becoming increasingly digital. Adversaries are employing asymmetric tactics, conducting EW and cyber offensive operations. What new opportunities and challenges does digitization present? How can navies ensure network resilience and protect communications? 
·          Maritime operations will require an ever increasing ability to collect and act on sensor data to build the tactical picture for operations. How can navies enhance threat detection and accelerate decision-making without compromising signature management?
