The use of Maritime Autonomous Systems is developing at a fast pace and will continue to grow as technology and research opens up new opportunities.  MAS operations to date have highlighted important defence, scientific as well as economic benefits. The MAS Regulatory Working Group (MASRWG) was formed to identify the issues related to the operation of Maritime Autonomous Systems in all of the global designated maritime zones; from the high seas into internal waters, and formulate a regulatory framework that could be adopted by the UK and other States as well as the international bodies given the responsibility to regulate the marine and maritime world.

The 3rd MASRWG Confernece is being held on the 16 - 17 November 2017 at the National Oceanographic Centre in Southampton, UK.
