The commander of Allied Joint Force Command Naples/U.S. Naval Forces Europe addressed participants of the Undersea Defense Technology (UDT) Europe 2007 conference and exhibition June 5.

“Someone here may be responsible for the technology that changes the face of undersea warfare,” said Adm. Harry Ulrich during his address. “This is the community that makes opaqueness transparent.”

UDT Europe 2007 is the largest established underwater defense event in Europe, bringing together key military leaders, scientists and technologists with defense manufacturers and suppliers. The event is designed to support the strategic priorities to improve maritime security and safety and respond to any contingency or consequence through raising awareness of undersea warfare missions and operations in the region.

Other keynote speakers kicking off the three-day event included Italian Undersecretary of Defense Senatore Giovanni Lorenzo Forcieri, Italian National Armament Director Gen. Gianni Botondi, Italian Navy Chief of Staff Adm. Paolo La Rosa and United Kingdom Capability Manager (Precision Attack) Rear. Adm. Paul Lambert -- all of whom focused on using the conference as a chance to share scientific and technological views in order to aid maritime security in the most efficient way possible.

UDT Europe 2007 exhibition was themed "Technology Contributions to Cooperative Navies -- The Manned or Unmanned Fleet" and featured seminars on dual-use technology, maritime security and force protection, and environmental impact. The exhibition was launched 20 years ago to provide a dedicated forum for the international undersea defense community. UDT Europe 2008 will take place in Glasgow, Scotland, June 10-12, 2008, and will be followed by the eighth UDT Pacific in Sydney, Australia, on Nov. 4-6, 2008.
