The 2021 theme was “Fathoming the Future: Examining Evolutionary Variables in a Multidimensional Maritime Domain.” The forum primarily focused on three topics: seafloor infrastructure and technology, climate influences on the undersea domain, and autonomous influences on the undersea domain. Participants identified changes that they felt needed to occur by 2040 to best protect the undersea domain and designed a competition to stimulate solutions to the identified challenges. The material published does not represent official views by forum participants.
The 2019 theme was “Unifying Unmanned Systems to Enhance Maritime Security: Building Networks to Solve Unique Challenges.” Participants collaborated on the development, deployment, and operation of unmanned vehicles and the challenges associated with networked unmanned vehicle systems. The material published does not represent official views by forum participants.
The mission of the National Maritime Intelligence-Integration Office (NMIO) is to advance maritime intelligence integration, information sharing, and domain awareness to foster unity of effort to protect the United States and its global interests, its allies, and its partners against threats to, in, or emanating from the global maritime domain.
