The Dialogue will follow NATO Science for Peace (Chemical Weapons) Program 26-27 May 2014. IDUM is a Co-Director of the NATO Program in the Baltic Sea. The week will be jammed-packed with events and end with a one day Economic Summit 30 May 2014 to discuss strategies to develop opportunities related to underwater munitions for marine, environment and defense industries. Do not miss these important week long events on Underwater Munitions Policy, Science, Technology and Responses. There is still time for your organization to be included in the agenda for underwater demonstrations. We have tenative ROV's, AUV's, Sensors, UXO Dive Team and the US Navy Mammal (Dolphins) Program for the 5th IDUM.
IDUM cooperated in the past years with individuals, industry and governments and will continue to cooperate with stakeholders to constructively engage in underwater munitions policy, science, technologies and responses. Some underwater munitions sites in Canada are located off the east and west coasts, the Great Lakes, Bay of Fundy and St Lawrence River. Experts believe the amounts of munitions in our in-land waterways, lakes, seas and oceans can be measured in the millions of tons.
