ROYAL NAVY: Personnel & Training – Autonomy; Anticipating Tomorrow’s Skills

13 Sep 2019
South Theatre
Naval

Those militaries that can effectively field autonomous systems, and harness their advantages can, in one stroke, increase their mass, or use mass of others; increase precision; increase lethality; decrease decision times and protect their people more effectively.  However, nothing will change the fact that War is a very human endeavour and we will always remain central to its undertaking.  What are the challenges for identifying, training and retaining technically adept individuals in an autonomous Navy, and how can Human-Machine Teaming harness the true potential of autonomous systems?

As the Royal Navy drives towards greater digitisation and autonomy, the expectations placed on its people are likewise in a transformational phase.  Indeed society itself, from which we recruit our people, is also evolving in the face of the myriad opportunities and challenges the digital age presents.  How therefore does the Navy best keep pace with technological advancement whilst ensuring it can recruit and retain the people who are best-placed to maximise its potential?  Further, can we call upon lessons learned in industry to ensure that we are making best possible progress in this space?

  • DSEI is a highlight within the defence calendar, I use it to find out what the most recent developments are in every technological area affecting for defence. Without DSEI I fear this sort of interaction, information exchange and knowledge of developments across all domains would be lost. DSEI is an invaluable international biannual event .

    UK Parliament
  • DSEI is a fantastic showcase for defence companies where international buyers, sellers, developers, thinkers, educators and the trainers can all get together. The UK defence industry is looking to recruit more engineers, scientists and developers into 200,000 jobs and up to 10,000 apprentices within UK defence companies. DSEI is an excellent tool to highlight the challenges the industry face as well as showcase its capabilities domestically and overseas.
