At a time when the Australian Defence Force is moving to a fifth generation of technological capability and Australia is embarking upon a massive naval shipbuilding program as part of that evolution, the need in government, industry, academia and the media to understand the way that maritime warfare works has never been greater. Yet the basic concepts are often opaque to outsiders, with even the simplest elements often surrounded by a mass of jargon and acronyms.

This one-day course will familiarise participants, especially those with limited prior exposure to naval combat and weapon systems, with context necessary to more effectively support naval combat and weapons systems across all phases of capability management.

No prior knowledge is assumed.
