Signals intelligence (SIGINT) is intelligence-gathering by interception of signals, whether communications between people (communications intelligence—abbreviated to COMINT) or from electronic signals not directly used in communication (electronic intelligence—abbreviated to ELINT). The abbreviation SIGINT – Signals Intelligence – stands for collecting and analyzing of information from radar- and radio-signals. Because …Read More »
USS Zumwalt, the US Navy’s largest stealthy destroyer, after combat system activation, will play important regional role
In naval terminology, a destroyer is a fast maneuverable long-endurance warship intended to escort larger vessels in a fleet, convoy or battle group and defend them against smaller powerful short-range attackers. It can also operate independently in hunting out enemy surface and undersea threats. The typical size of destroyers also …Read More »
A close-in weapon system (CIWS), is a point-defense weapon for detecting and destroying short-range incoming missiles and enemy aircraft which have penetrated the outer defenses, typically mounted shipboard in a naval capacity. Nearly all classes of modern warship are equipped with some kind of CIWS device. CIWS Systems There …Read More »
