EAAW at a glance
In 2004 the first EAAW Symposium was established to bring together and inform the marine and combat systems communities to ensure opportunities would be exploited and challenges overcome.
Since then developments in high energy weapons and marine power system technologies have advanced apace. The Royal Navy has introduced to service the Type 45 class of destroyers with Integrated Full Electric Propulsion whilst the US Navy's highly innovative DDG-1000, USS Zumwalt, was launched on 28 October 2013 and is expected to be commissioned in 2015.
Ten years on from the first Symposium, the Royal Navy's Queen Elizabeth class Aircraft Carrier may represent the most highly integrated warship ever built. In addition, Navies across the world are challenged more frequently with retrofitting new equipment as technology refresh is required to keep pace with ever demanding capability requirements. Now, EAAW VI seeks to review the technological advances in platform and combat system design that have taken place over the last decade and explore the progress towards total ship integration.
