Clarion Events hosts the Undersea Defence Technology (UDT) Asia 2011 conference and exhibition to bring senior naval and industry personnel together to cover underwater developments in the region

Sin­ga­pore, May 30 – Clar­i­on Events is host­ing UDT Asia on 30 Novem­ber – 1 Decem­ber 2011. The event brings togeth­er the under­sea defence com­mu­ni­ty in Asia, fea­tur­ing top region­al naval speak­ers, who will be address­ing the lat­est under­wa­ter require­ments for Asian navies.

Accord­ing to AMI Inter­na­tion­al, research has shown that over the next 5 years in the Asia Pacif­ic region an esti­mat­ed USD $60bn is expect­ed to be spent on naval sys­tems with the major­i­ty look­ing at sub­marines and sur­face ships with ASW capa­bil­i­ties. Sub­marines are expect­ed to take up 22% of the total mar­ket share and sur­face ships with ASW capa­bil­i­ties tak­ing up 10%. The remain­ing 68% will be tak­en up with larg­er naval plat­form acqui­si­tions includ­ing corvettes, frigates and mul­ti­pur­pose amphibi­ous ships for mar­itime secu­ri­ty and civ­il and human­i­tar­i­an aid. In total research indi­cates over USD $19bn spent on the under­wa­ter environment.

Fur­ther­more, AMI Inter­na­tion­al says that region­al navies are expect­ed to acquire a total of 841 ves­sels by 2016. Of these, 83 will be sub­marines togeth­er with more than 80 amphibi­ous ves­sels that are expect­ed to be pur­chased dur­ing the same period.

At UDT Asia, the acqui­si­tion of under­sea fleets includ­ing strate­gic per­spec­tives on plans, pol­i­cy, doc­tri­nal and advanced pro­cure­ment issues will be dis­cussed and the future direc­tion defined. Giv­en the diver­si­ty of pos­si­ble mis­sions in the shal­low-water and near-shore lit­toral zones, the poten­tial threats from forces on land, any ship designed for these tasks must be both ver­sa­tile, stealthy and above all with­in bud­get. COTs have emerged as a viable alter­na­tive to ensure open sys­tem archi­tec­ture and train­ing for deci­sion mak­ing respon­si­bil­i­ty remains a priority.

The con­fer­ence at UDT Asia will reflect these chang­ing mar­itime trends and will embrace a broad spec­trum of under­sea mar­itime secu­ri­ty includ­ing changes in con­cepts of oper­a­tions and the increased role for unmanned vehi­cles. It also will look at the naval require­ments and the tech­nol­o­gy that can ful­fil these needs. 

Accord­ing to Amo Mostofi, Gen­er­al Man­ag­er, Clar­i­on Events Asia, “The pri­ma­ry objec­tive of this con­fer­ence is to allow region­al navies to edu­cate indus­try on their cur­rent and future require­ments and express their most press­ing chal­lenges. We have planned morn­ing keynotes from region­al flag offi­cers who will ‘set the scene’ for the rest of the con­fer­ence where tech­ni­cal, oper­a­tional and strate­gic pre­sen­ta­tions will be giv­en from indus­try, acad­e­mia and mil­i­tary.” He added fur­ther “UDT Asia has sig­nif­i­cant pedi­gree and we’re delight­ed to be able to pro­vide this forum for the Asian under­sea naval sector.”

Clar­i­on Events spe­cialise in high-lev­el defence and secu­ri­ty events which are cre­at­ed with the input of a pan­el of senior lev­el gov­ern­ment, mil­i­tary and indus­try advi­sors. Exten­sive research and dia­logue with these con­tacts ensure our events reflect the most impor­tant issues fac­ing you and the wider defence and secu­ri­ty com­mu­ni­ty today. By mak­ing it our pri­ma­ry mis­sion to work close­ly with the Asian defence com­mu­ni­ty, includ­ing all senior stake­hold­ers and lead­ers we are able to cre­ate the most effec­tive pro­grammes for the Asian mar­ket. Our events pro­vide the ide­al venue for these high lev­el del­e­gates to meet, share ideas, dis­cuss indus­try devel­op­ments, con­duct busi­ness, devel­op part­ner­ships and net­work for future growth.
