Research & Analysis
Now is the time to prepare for autonomous undersea conflict.
Undersea warfare is undergoing a profound transformation.
Autonomous systems are poised to redefine the nature of armed conflict beneath the waves, and their deployment in the opaque subsea domain will unfold in ways that have yet to be imagined.
Since 2016, Strikepod Systems has been monitoring the rapid evolution of unmanned undersea systems, mine warfare (MIW), and subsea/seabed warfare (SSW), equipping defense, policy, industry, and intelligence customers with the creative insights and analyses they need to anticipate the threats and opportunities of autonomous undersea operations.
We can help you navigate the challenges ahead.
Our premium research service provides comprehensive coverage of autonomous undersea systems and operations, including:
Platforms, payloads, procurements, CONOPs, industry trends, and scientific research.
Underwater sensor, communication, energy, and data processing technologies, including machine learning and artificial intelligence.
The convergence of mines, torpedoes, and UUVs, and the evolution of mine warfare in an era of renewed strategic competition.
The strategic, operational, and tactical employment of autonomous undersea systems, including their integration into intelligence, combat, and special operations, as well as joint warfighting concepts and emerging operating models such as Distributed Maritime Operations (DMO) and Expeditionary Advanced Base Operations (EABO).
The implications of autonomous undersea combat operations for the current strategic environment, from great power competition, to rogue and nonstate threats, to the gray zone.
The actionable insights you need.
