Perth – Autonomous Underwater Technology Conference (AUT 2015)

SUT & Australasian Hydrographic Society Event

22 October, 2015


The Australasian Hydrographic Society (AHS) and the Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) are fully-supportive of further AUT developments and are therefore holding a one day conference in Perth, to disseminate information and ideas.   This conference has become one of the most important networking opportunities in this field, allowing contact between pipeline engineers, geophysicists, environmental scientists, geotechnical engineers, hydrographic surveyors, defense organisations, oil & gas field development specialists, government bodies, equipment manufacturers, academic & research bodies, oceanographers, survey companies and port & security operators.
