Applied Technology Institute (ATI Courses) will be presenting Submarines and Anti-Submarine Warfare technical training short course on August 21-23, 2013 in Laurel, MD.  This three-day course presents the fundamental philosophy of submarine design, construction, and stability as well as the utilization of submarines as cost-effective warships at sea.  The course is taught by retired USN captain Ray Wellborn. You can view the course sampler here. The course is highly relevant to the current events in anti-submarine warfare since the Republic of China inaugurated a newly created air force anti-submarine battle division on July 2, 2013. The inauguration took place in Pingtung County and was attended by Chief of General Staff Yen Ming and many generals and officers from the air force and navy. According to Yen, operating against submarine blockades, securing shipping lane safety and gaining an advantage at sea are the main tasks for the anti-submarine division. With the upgraded P-3C anti-submarine aircraft and advanced surveillance and telecommunication systems, Yen said the MND can better incorporate air and navy forces to ensure a 3-D defense and secure the country’s surrounding waters. Yen said that strong national defense capabilities are the only cornerstone for national development and social prosperity.
