EVENT: UDT 2022 takes teamwork to the Grey Zone

20.05.2022
Senior military personnel and industry experts will put the operational dynamic of ‘the Grey Zone’ front and centre when the global undersea defence community comes together at UDT 2022 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, in June. The Grey Zone’s complexity, ambiguity and importance is widely recognised by military planners and governments. Offensive operations in this space, if well planned and executed, can preclude categorical attribution whilst also avoiding a substantial military reprisal, and yet can potentially contribute significantly to the long-term strategic goals of the aggressor.
