The theme for this year's symposium is "Minder, Mentor, Minion, Mate: Warfighter roles in Future Complex Systems". Defence has long recognised the capability advantage that teams provide over individual effort across the Defence domains (Land, Sea, Air, Joint). The study of human teams and the degree to which knowledge about human teams generalises to the opportunities and challenges presented by teams of human and non-human agents are therefore of critical importance.

The course provides students with a complete understanding of conventional submarine technology, and our experienced presenters explain how capability requirements and new technologies can impact overall submarine design and management. This course caters to students with both technical and non-technical backgrounds, providing an understanding of the military capability in conventional submarines and the considerations in the defence acquisition process. For those delegates with an engineering background, the course will also investigate how to apply practical approaches to solving technical challenges. Attendees will become part of an elite group of alumni, providing excellent networking opportunities and ongoing support from the submarine community.
