In September 2013, the Ministry of Defense (MoD)1 announced plans to replace the Walrus Class submarines in the coming twenties. These plans included the explicit desire to collaborate with European partners. In response to the announcement the members of the Dutch Underwater Knowledge Center (DUKC) felt the need to put forward their ambition to become an integral partner in this programme and to discuss this with MoD. Subsequently it triggered this report on Participation Objectives which is based on an earlier DUKC report “Onderzeebootkennis” that was presented to MoD on 16 November 2012.
