**Please be advised: This event will premiere on this page at 3:00 p.m. EDT, Monday, October 19.**

Join us for a discussion on the future of anti-submarine warfare, and how autonomous systems could enable new concepts for defeating enemy submarines that are more effective, sustainable, and scalable. Director of Hudson’s Center for Defense Concepts and Technology Bryan Clark, Director of Hudson’s Center for American Seapower Seth Cropsey, and Fellow Timothy A. Walton will present the results of their study, Sustaining the Undersea Advantage. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with Admiral Jonathan W. Greenert (ret.), 30th US Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral James F. Foggo (ret.), former commander of US Naval Forces, Europe, and Dr. Curt von Braun, Technical Director for Naval Power at Raytheon Technologies.

Submarine threats increased substantially during the past decade. China’s Navy is modernizing its fleet; new generations of Russian Navy nuclear submarines are difficult to track and could be employed for conventional or nuclear strikes; and several fleets are augmenting their forces with large autonomous underwater vehicles. Unfortunately, today’s US and allied anti-submarine warfare operations cannot scale with the undersea threats they will face during a crisis or conflict. US and allied ASW concepts are also expensive, requiring significant manpower and tying up multi-mission destroyers and submarines that are needed elsewhere for air defense or anti-surface warfare. To address the rising submarine threat, US and allied militaries need a new approach to anti-submarine warfare.
