Page 23 of 44 May 2018 | ST 23 U ndersea Defence Technology (UDT) 2018 will take place in Glasgow, Scotland, from June 26 to 28. UDT strives toward and continues to deliver a plat- form for the subsea community to gather and discuss the industry's most pressing questions, prominent technologies and innovative solutions. The undersea envi- ronment is one of the harshest on Earth, and the technological complexities of operating in this environment mean it is essential to provide a forum for the en- tire community to share knowledge. UDT will enable international companies comprising prime contractors, systems integrators, service providers and small and me- dium enterprises to meet and network with more than 1,400 industry influencers, government decision makers and senior military officials. In 2018, UDT enters its 31st year of providing the platform it does to industry and end-users alike. It is very important for UDT to stay relevant to the industry it looks to support, and this year is no ex- ception, with various inaugural projects and topics for 2018. Babcock Innovation Zone The Babcock Innovation Zone, a bespoke ex- hibition space, will be available for start-ups and small businesses to promote their contemporary technologies, innovations and industry solutions. Babcock, through a common interest with UDT, will provide a platform for pioneering industry con- tributors to the undersea defense market. The Babcock Innovation Zone is ideal for col- laborations from business and academia working on the latest technology, or small companies with a new product or service, to present their bespoke solutions. In parallel, an area has been created to al- low researchers to present their work through post- ers and discuss it in person. The organizers will provide a unique stage for systems integrators, service providers and small enterprises. At the heart of the Babcock Innovation Zone is an ethos to facilitate entry of even the smallest of companies into a competitive market, where many innovative and cutting-edge solutions can be difficult to uncover otherwise. Military Diver Conference UDT is launching the Military Diver Capabilities conference as a platform for discussion among those engaged in diving operations, diver training and div- er equipment development and research in this most challenging aspect of undersea operations. The theme is Undersea Defence Technology ST Conference Preview
