The International Mine Warfare Technology Symposium series is the only US Navy-sponsored event that has sole focus on naval mine warfare and related technologies.

This event is jointly sponsored by the Mine Warfare Association and the US Naval Postgraduate School – and held every odd year in Monterey, California USA.

With COVID restrictions still in place, an intensive virtual symposium will happen 25-27 May 2021.  As with the past editions, this conference is unclassified, allowing foreign participation.  https://minwara.org/symposium/

Most of the sessions will be open to media. While there is no charge for media to attend, pre-registration is required in order to gain access to the event’s app.  https://minwara.org/symposium/register/

Each of the three seminar days will have a plenary session featuring a variety of speakers and topics.

Confirmed speakers to date include…

  • US Fleet Forces Commander
  • Commander, US Seventh Fleet
  • N95 and N95B, Expeditionary Warfare
  • Director of the NATO Naval Mine Warfare Centre of Excellence
  • Australian Director General Combat Management & Payload Systems
  • Australian Director General Littoral
