The new area of Sub-Sea Warfare, which encompasses unmanned vehicles, sea-bed infrastructure, distributed networks, and irregular warfare, will also be introduced and discussed. Upon course conclusion, students will have an appreciation of the current status of Undersea Warfare in the Navy today, where the problems and challenges exist, and how the knowledge gained from their Undersea Warfare curriculum will help the Navy develop solutions to these problems and challenges.
