The growing capability of autonomous underwater systems is changing the dynamics of undersea warfare and mine hunting. Defence Connect Podcast host Phil Tarrant is joined by Gavin Henry and Daniel Dent of Thales Underwater Systems to discuss the role industry plays in supporting the integration of autonomous systems in the future Royal Australian Navy.

In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, Henry, business development, and Dent, R&D project manager, from Thales Underwater Systems will unpack the growing synergies between industry and Defence to respond to emerging and existing threats in the underwater domain. 

The pair will also discuss the growing export opportunities emerging throughout the Indo-Pacific and European regions, on the back of Thales’ local research and development and sovereign industry capability across autonomous systems, mine hunting and the underwater domain.

Additionally, the pair will focus on complex system capabilities that Thales Underwater Systems is developing in Australia to support the Royal Australian Navy’s operational goals, while reducing the risk to human operators through the integration of autonomous systems. These developments also provide the opportunity for developing key relationships between industry, Defence and broader global customers.

Enjoy the podcast,

The Defence Connect team.
