Countries plan Unmanned Warships conducting air defense, anti-ship and anti-submarine missions

A warship or combatant ship is a naval ship that is built and primarily intended for naval warfare. Usually they belong to the armed forces of a state. As well as being armed, warships are designed to withstand damage and are usually faster and more manoeuvrable than merchant ships. Unlike …

DARPA’s Blue Wolf developed fast, efficient underwater vehicles (UUVs) with energy, hydrodynamic lift, and drag-reduction technology breakthroughs

Unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) have inherent operational and tactical advantages such as stealth and surprise. UUV size, weight and volume are constrained by the handling, launch and recovery systems on their host platforms. Mission performance typically sets the range, endurance, speed, and depth requirements, however the UUV range is limited …

DARPA Hydra developed a distributed undersea network of UUVs and UAVs able to operate independently for weeks or months

Today’s naval forces rely primarily on highly capable multifunctional manned platforms, such as ships and submarines. Even the most advanced vessel, however, can only be in one place at a time, making the ability to respond increasingly dependent on being ready at the right place at the right time. With …

DARPA’s TIMEly to build Undersea Network Architecture for situational awareness and command and control to dominate in multi domain conflicts

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting innovative proposals in maritime communications with an emphasis on undersea and cross-domain (above sea to below sea and vice versa) communications. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency wants to build an undersea network so that the military can have situational awareness …

Countries plan high endurance and stealthy diesel-electric submarines equipped with batteries

Naval Warfare depends a large extent on lethality and survivability of submarines, its principal weapon, therefore Navies have been researching new ways to make them quieter and increasing their underwater endurance. Propulsion system plays an extremely important role in the functioning of a submarine for the completion of its desired …

Countries developing Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) to transform Naval Anti-air Warfare with enhanced throughput, scalability and Interoperability

Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) is a sensor network with integrated fire control capability that is intended to significantly improve battle force air and missile defense capabilities by combining data from multiple battle force air search sensors on CEC-equipped units into a single, real-time, composite track picture (network-centric warfare). This will …

Next-generation maritime inertial navigation systems addressing the navigation and localization challenge of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV), critical for commercial and military missions

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV), also known as unmanned underwater vehicle, conducts its survey mission without operator intervention. Their autonomy allows AUVs to be used for missions where a surface vehicle or manned submersible would be at risk, such as mine countermeasure (MCM),  under-ice operations or underwater survey missions such as …

China deploying Ocean of things, through distributed network Maritime Surveillance Platforms in South China Sea

China has carried out militarization of Spratly Islands and other islands in South china sea by building military bases on them along with giant runways, ports, bunkers, and sensor arrays. Several islands were constructed with airstrips and harbors capable of accepting military aircraft and warships.  China has also deployed anti-ship …

NATO planning advanced submarine sensing and hunting technologies for Russian ultra quiet submarines

Russia is seeking to further bolster its sub-surface capabilities, with new generations of conventional and nuclear propulsion submarines, which promise to be significantly more difficult to detect and track for western naval forces. This includes the Yasen, Lada, Borei and Kalina classes of submarines. Russia’s United Shipbuilding Corporation (UAC) has announced …

DARPA launched submarine hunting platforms and technologies to track ultra-quiet as well as highly lethal submarines

Russia is seeking to further bolster its sub-surface capabilities, with new generations of conventional and nuclear propulsion submarines, which promise to be significantly more difficult to detect and track for western naval forces. This includes the Yasen, Lada, Borei and Kalina classes of submarines. Russia’s United Shipbuilding Corporation (UAC) has …
