ANTX-Coastal Trident

ANTX-Coastal Trident is conducted by the Naval Surface Warfare Center’s Port Hueneme Division as a resource for the Navy’s research and development (R&D) and science and technology (S&T) communities, in order to accelerate evaluation and transition of leading-edge technologies that meet the technical needs of the naval warfighter.

NSWC PHD’s ANTX is encompassed within the architecture of an operational research program known as “Coastal Trident,” which is conducted annually to advance the state of the art in countering threats to port and maritime security and sustaining the global operations of naval forces.  

 

Coastal Trident is leveraged as a venue to support high-velocity learning and accelerate development, evaluation, and identification of barriers to implementation of technologies to assist Navy forces in the following areas:

  • In-service engineering, maintenance, and supportability

  • Sensor data fusion, maritime communications, and decision support

  • Multi-spectral sensing, augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR), and digital engineering

  • Unmanned systems (UxS) applications and countermeasures

 

ANTX-Coastal Trident incorporates a “whole of government” focus to its design, recognizing the importance of non-DoD federal, state, and local government partners in sustaining Navy forces, facilitating regional information dominance, and responding to major incidents in port and coastal waters.

 

This focus is unique among ANTX programs and serves to leverage R&D and S&T initiatives across a broad spectrum of port and maritime stakeholders to build operational and technical capabilities that are relevant to Navy priorities.

ANTX-COASTAL TRIDENT 2021

ANTX-CT21 will be conducted in the summer and fall of 2021 in order to focus the technical capabilities and subject matter expertise of government, industry, and academic participants on Navy priorities and operational needs.
