Annual Symposium

The NSL Annual Symposium & Industry Update is traditionally accepted by DoD as a Widely Attended Gathering, enabling Active Duty attendance. Presentations are made by Submarine Force leadership with updates on major acquisition and programmatic issues. Active Duty panels provide additional insight into the experiences and needs of today’s submariners. Industry and government agencies present technical papers, discussions, and solutions via exhibit displays. There are continuous opportunities for Navy leadership and Industry networking.
