STS is the NSL’s classified (SECRET/NOFORN) three-day conference, usually held on the campus of Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. This is a premier opportunity for Navy leadership, Industry and academia to engage in productive technical exchanges. Industry, government, and academia are invited to submit abstracts for presentation.
The on-site format includes selected displays of new technology developments. Speakers generally allow time for Q&A and there are breaks between sessions to foster discussion and networking.
In 2020, Submarine Force and Navy leadership will videotape their keynote addresses.  Technical presentations and fleet briefs will be provided via annotated power points.  This will be a DVD classified at the SECRET/NOFORN level.

STS 2020 Theme: “A Vision to Dominate Future Competition with Precision Effects from the Undersea Domain”
The threat to maintaining undersea superiority is more critical than ever as we have entered an era of Great Power Competition. Our adversaries are disparate, geographically dispersed and aggressively advancing technology to neutralize our advantages. At home, we face pressure to build a superior fleet in a fiscally responsible manner to combat an uncertain future – or risk that it may not be built at all. Our dominance of the undersea domain today is due to the bold and innovative technological advances within our submarine fleet that were rapidly enabled by disciplined system engineering to deter the enemies of freedom worldwide. Courageous integration of nuclear power and strategic weaponry on impossibly short time frames made the submarine fleet the Navy’s “game changer” and U.S. undersea superiority became the exemplar for maintaining peace through strength in the Cold and Post-Cold War Eras. Dominating future competition requires us to again embrace innovation in technology, operational employment, and process – but this time by aligning behind a vision of domain centric vice platform centric warfare. The fight of the future will require integrated effects from manned and unmanned platforms as well as autonomous undersea capabilities. This symposium challenges the Submarine Community to use its legacy of innovation to execute this vision while upholding the finest traditions of “The Silent Service”.

Abstracts/Displays 

Commander, Submarine Forces, the Naval Submarine League, and The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory are pleased to announce a Call for Abstracts for Presentations and Exhibits for the Submarine Technology Symposium 2020 (STS 2020). Presentations and exhibits will be selected based on technical content and relevance to the Symposium theme and session topics as described below. Please note that classified presentations containing test data and operational results are encouraged. Unclassified abstracts for both presentations and exhibits must be submitted electronically using an online form.  Presenters accepted for the Symposium will have the option, but not a requirement, to provide a paper to be published in the Proceedings. NOW CLOSED – Look for the Call for Abstracts for STS 2021 to be issued in September 2020 with abstracts due in November.
