Similar to any war mission, the success of anti-submarine warfare is contingent on the correct use of the right technologies, intelligence, doctrine, tactics, training and experience. Technology in submarine and surface ship platform and sensor systems is constantly improving, and this calls for continuous training with advanced capabilities in real world situations.
The ability of submarines to covertly approach their targets and launch an attack remains a significant vulnerability to all navies. While ASW is the obvious solution to the threat, the reality is that that ASW deployment is a complex process.
This four day course is intended for officers and engineers specialising in ASW. This course will discuss extensively ASW systems and their use, and the systems that submarines employ in conducting their operational tasks. Additional material relating to this specialised area of warfare area addresses, include torpedo defence, signature management and mission planning.

“The trainer shared with us a lot of valuable experiences which is not easily found on the internet. He made the course interesting and allowed beginners like me to appreciate sonar processing. He is also very willing to share his work with us even when there are out of coverage of this training.”
