The SUT was founded to promote the further understanding of the underwater environment and to encourage:

  • Cross-fertilisation and dissemination of ideas, experience and information between workers in academic research, applied research and technology, industry and government
  • Development of techniques and tools to explore, study and exploit the oceans
  • Proper economic and sociological usage of resources in and beneath the oceans
  • Further education of scientists and technologists to maintain high standards in marine science and technology.

Underwater Technology covers the following areas:

  • Diving technology and physiology
  • Submersible design and operation
  • Naval architecture
  • Underwater acoustics
  • Subsea systems
  • Geology
  • Geophysics
  • Marine resource exploitation
  • Oceanography
  • Environmental studies
  • Pollution
  • Marine biology

About the speaker – Ian Gallett

Mr. Ian Gallett is the Chief Executive of the Society for Underwater Technology, an
international society dedicated to the dissemination of knowledge and ideas in all aspects
of subsea technology, ocean science and offshore engineering. After gaining a degree in
Physics and conducting research into electromagnetic propagation, he joined the Royal
Navy in 1973 where he became a metocean specialist. His main concerns were in
operational oceanography and acoustics, particularly the effects of the ocean environment
on long range passive sonar detection. Before leaving the Navy in 1996 with the rank of
Commander, he was responsible for setting Royal Navy policy in the collection and use
of oceanographic data, and their application in acoustic modeling. He has been with the
Society for 12 years.
