Underwater Intervention Technical Program

Underwater Intervention is back!

Underwater Intervention offers a multi-track technical conference program covering the most current challenges and up-to-date strategies and technologies.
The marine technology industry is rapidly evolving, pushing the boundaries of what was once thought possible and redefining the underwater intervention market. With the emergence of new capabilities in remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), manned submersibles, and unmanned surface vehicles/unmanned undersea vehicles (USVs/UUVs), engineers and technical specialists now have exciting opportunities to further explore.
Attendees will hear from some of the world’s leading figures within the industry who are at the forefront of these cutting edge technologies. 
Meet the track chairs who make this programming possible.

Commercial Diving

Commercial Diving

Diving organizations, regulatory bodies, and other industry leaders share ideas and information in an effort to collaborate on key issues of the industry and foster a safe and successful working environment. The Commercial Diving Track is focused on providing divers with the necessary tools in order to exceed expectations on the job site, improve their skill set, and expand their knowledge.

Workforce Development for the Blue Economy

Workforce Development for the Blue Economy

The Workforce Development track will highlight innovative education and training programs that are helping to prepare students of all ages for the marine industry. From formal degree and certificate programs to entrepreneurial opportunities where students are at the forefront, these programs represent best practices in marine technology education. Both the faculty and educators who worked with industry leaders to develop these programs, as well as the students who benefit from them, will be part of UI. The track will include student research and engineering projects as well as the creative offerings of informal education programs. Learn about student opportunities and programs, from scholarships to summer marine technology camps.

Survey & Mapping

Survey & Mapping

This track embraces an expanded focus on the latest in developments with subsea survey & mapping in order to capture existing and emerging activities for exploring, documenting, and working on/under/in the ocean and seafloor. Topics covered are ocean conservation, resource management as well as industry initiatives for science, exploration and client deliverables. Presented within this forum are exciting multi-media presentations designed to stimulate discussion on emerging technologies in unmanned survey techniques including 3-D laser technologies, software, survey and mapping tools along with research efforts and exciting discoveries from exploration projects all around the world.

Think Tank

Think Tank

The UI 2023 Think Tank provides informative and interactive sessions designed to provoke thought sharing and ideation for the industry’s most topical matters. Located in the exhibit hall for added convenience, join these sessions to learn and share ideas on industry challenges and best practices.

Manned Submersibles

Manned Submersibles

The Marine Technology Society committee on Manned Underwater Vehicles brings together professionals interested in the innovations of manned submersibles design, construction and operation and the quest for a variety of marine science and engineering goals. Each presentation has a focus on manned submersible vehicles and often overlap into other areas of deep-water intervention.

Remotely Operated Vehicles

Remotely Operated Vehicle

Remotely Operated Vehicles encompass a wide range of tele-operated robotics for industrial usage. The classification includes swimming, crawling and flying mobile robots that receive telemetry and control either via hard-wired tether or via radio (or optical) frequency communications. Historically, the ROV Track at Underwater Intervention has focused on swimming tethered robotics for usage in oil & gas as well as scientific and military applications. Topics covered within the purview of this year’s technical track include all aspects of equipment and application for tele-operated robotics. From the human machine interface, to power, to deployment methods/equipment, the sensors, the end-effector, the latest topics of interest by leading industry experts will be covered in a lively and dynamic forum.

Unmanned Undersea Vehicles (UUV)

Unmanned Undersea Vehicles (UUV)

The UUV track focuses on all applications of this technology relevant to the Underwater Intervention community. Topics of interest include: pipeline survey and inspection, inspection maintenance and repair (IMR), and seafloor resident systems. Novel solutions such as ROVs tended by unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) and subsystem technologies such as sensors and telemetry will be discussed. Presentations may include both technology concepts and use cases and concepts of operation (CONOPS) for UUVs in underwater intervention. Industry sectors may include energy (oil and renewable), defense and science.
