Undersea Warfare- Advanced Training


Undersea Warfare- Advanced Training Course Description

Advanced Undersea Warfare (USW) covers the latest information about submarine employment in future conflicts. The course is taught by a leading innovator in submarine tactics. The roles, capabilities and future developments of submarines in littoral warfare are emphasized.

The technology and tactics of modern nuclear and diesel submarines are discussed. The importance of stealth, mobility, and firepower for submarine missions are illustrated by historical and projected roles of submarines. Differences between nuclear and diesel submarines are reviewed. Submarine sensors (sonar, ELINT, visual) and weapons (torpedoes, missiles, mines, special forces) are presented.

Advanced USW gives you a wealth of practical knowledge about the latest issues and tactics in submarine warfare. The course provides the necessary background to understand the employment of submarines in the current world environment.

Advanced USW is valuable to engineers and scientists who are working in R&D, or in testing of submarine systems. It provides the knowledge and perspective to understand advanced USW in shallow water and regional conflicts.

Skills Gained:

• Changing doctrinal “truths” of Undersea Warfare in the Littoral warfare.
• Traditional and emergent tactical concepts of Undersea Warfare.
• The forcing functions for required developments in platforms, sensors, weapons, and C-cubed capabilities.
• The roles, missions, and counters to “Rest of the World” (ROW) mines and non-nuclear submarines.
• Impact of an adversary’s ‘Anti-Access/Are Denial’ (A2AD) strategy
• Current thinking in support of optimizing the U.S. submarine for coordinated and joint operations under tactical control of the Joint Task Force Commander or CINC.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
