UW is a research and training exercise designed to test and demonstrate the latest in autonomous naval technologies while simultaneously strengthening international interoperability. The U.S. Navy team, led by the Office of Naval Research, is in Scotland to partner with more than 40 international participants from other navies, industry, academia and research laboratories. Unmanned Warrior is part of Joint Warrior, a semiannual United Kingdom-led training exercise designed to provide NATO and allied forces with a unique multi-warfare environment in which to prepare for global operations.
