Naval Combat and Combat Management Systems (NCMS) being upgraded to handle new maritime security threats

Recent years have seen multiple new security challenges emerge in the maritime arena. Navies, coast guards and other maritime security agencies face a proliferation of security challenges. These include: illegal fishing of territorial waters; incursion of mineral exploitation across legal boundaries; maritime terrorism; narcotics smuggling; pollution as a result of …

US Navy biologists creating GM bacteria capable of detecting enemy ships and submarines.

US Naval Research Laboratory (Naval Research Laboratory, NRL)  has  allocated $ 45 million for the implementation of a program to study the prospects for the use of genetic engineering for the navy. Part of the program was the development of genetically modified microorganisms capable of detecting the presence of enemy ships, …

Researchers looking to fishes for designing biomimetic systems for flexible Armor, faster aircraft and camouflaging skin

It was in the oceans that life first evolved and where complex animals have thrived for over 600 million years. Marine animals survive in environments as diverse as tropical coral reefs, polar ice-capped oceans, and the lightless abyssal depths, says Frank E. Fish from West Chester University and Donna M. …

Countries developing Underwater LIDAR imaging systems for rapid wide-area anti-mine and anti-submarine operations

Currently, the most widely used technology to detect underwater objects  is sound navigation and ranging (SONAR), because acoustic waves can  penetrate the water depths to the bottom of the sea. SONAR also suffers from unwanted multipass echoes that are due to reflections from the surrounding terrain. Thus, high-resolution underwater imaging …

Shipping companies and US Navy experimenting with drones for delivering cargo autonomously

Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), which are going through a massive development phase, are finding their purpose in the shipping industry as well. In the shipping industry, drones have typically been used for security, environmental surveillance, emergency response, search and rescue missions, as well as various vessel inspections. Now Shipping companies …

China and Israel develop Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV ) that could fire missiles

Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV ) is a vehicle that operates at or near the sea surface and  has no vehicle operators on board. The USV are increasingly employed as they collect data for longer periods of time, at a fraction of the cost of Research ships, and with wide ranging …

China AI enabled, ultraquiet diesel and nuclear ballistic missile submarines with capability to strike Hawaii and Alaska, has graduated to major naval power

China has boosted its submarine force over the last 20 years, building a modern, flexible force that now has more total ships than the US. The force currently numbers 56 subs – four nuclear-powered missile subs, five nuclear-powered attack subs, and 47 diesel-powered attack subs – and is likely grow …

US Navy found Faulty Welding in Submarine Missile Tubes, developing non-destructive weld inspection methods

In 2000, a Russian cruise-missile submarine — Kursk — sank, killing all 118 sailors on board. The Russian government concluded the ship sunk due to a faulty weld which caused a gas leak and led to an explosion.   The U.S. Navy in August 2018 said that there’s a problem …

Navies exploring Biomimetics, Bio-inspired mechanisms to improve military underwater sensing, control and communications systems

“It was in the oceans that life first evolved and where complex animals have thrived for over 600 million years. Marine animals survive in environments as diverse as tropical coral reefs, polar ice-capped oceans, and the lightless abyssal depths,” says Frank E. Fish from West Chester University and Donna M. …

New technology to fight human and drug smuggling across maritime borders

One of the threat of maritime security is human and drug smuggling across maritime borders. This is particularly important because terrorists may use similar pathways to sneak illegal weapons through the border or to deliver a dirty bomb to seaports.   There has been a noticeable growth in maritime criminal …
