NEWPORT, R.I. (Tribune News Service) — The Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division Newport will host the 2019 Advanced Naval Technology Exercise — "Prepare for Battle: Undersea Security" — Aug 28 and 29 at its Narragansett Bay Test Facility in Newport.
This is the fifth year NUWC Newport is hosting ANTX, an event designed to promote innovation and collaboration across government, industry and academia in an effort to evolve the state of the art for emerging Fleet technologies. The ultimate goal of ANTX is to get the best technology to the Fleet as fast as possible. Across the Naval Research and Development Enterprise, ANTX has introduced a new paradigm in rapid experimentation and is a catalyst for increasing collaboration, fostering innovation, providing a low-risk environment for experimentation, building relationships, and promoting feedback with the Navy and its technical providers.
ANTX US-19 is the largest ANTX event hosted at NUWC Newport in terms of the number of participants, vehicles and technologies since the exercise series began in 2015. This exercise will involve 60 participants.
Consistent with the undersea security battle space preparation theme, participants have identified technologies and future concepts that explore and interact with the maritime domain, and ensuring their security in order to bring the data home. These enablers include maritime assets with the ability to monitor, anticipate, recognize, and respond to change by interacting with systems from the seafloor to the ocean surface and above.
