Researchers at Penn State Applied Research Laboratory are developing a new system using a technique called supercavitation. Supercavitation is the use of cavitation effects to create a bubble of gas inside a liquid large enough to encompass an object travelling through the liquid, greatly reducing the skin friction drag on …Read More »
US deploys E-2D to Japan for protection of US carriers from China’s J-20 and J-31 Stealth Aircrafts and cruise missiles and monitor its activities in South China Sea
The US Navy announced that it will deploy its leading-edge early-warning surveillance aircraft E2D to Japan in February. The Hawkeye will deploy from the USS Ronald Reagan, the aircraft carrier assigned to the Asia-based Seventh Fleet. The Hawkeye can detect cruise-missile and ballistic-missile launches from long range, potentially allowing for the missile …Read More »
US patents Quantum Entanglement based techniques for detection of stealthy Russian and Chinese submarines even under arctic
The US Government has now tuned to Quantum sensors to detect stealthy Russian and Chinese submarines. Quantum sensors are measuring device that takes advantage of quantum correlations, such as states in a quantum superposition or entanglement, for better sensitivity and resolution than can be obtained by classical systems. Quantum sensors …Read More »
DoD’s Tern program will revolutionize small ships with persistent ISR and strike capabilities anywhere in the world.
The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has moved to a third and final stage of an effort to launch medium-altitude long-endurance (MALE) unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from US Navy’s relatively small surface ships like destroyers, frigates, and even freighters and expects an initial flight test in 2018. …Read More »
U.S. Navy developing Acoustic Undersea Navigation and Positioning system to provide GPS-like accuracy anywhere in the ocean
The unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) depend on stealth as they conduct surveillance and reconnaissance and other missions in the deep oceans. With GPS signals unable to penetrate the ocean’s surface, these UUVs can rely on inertial sensors to provide acceptable positioning information during short missions. On longer missions, however, inertial …Read More »
“China is building a modern and regionally powerful navy with a limited but growing capability for conducting operations beyond China’s near-seas region,” said CRS report “China Naval Modernization: Implications for U.S. Navy Capabilities—Background and Issues for Congress.” “Observers believe China wants its military to be capable of acting as an …Read More »
British scientists brainstorm what a warship might look like or be equipped with in 2050: Dreadnought 2050
UK is an island nation, most of the UK’s connections to the wider world are provided by sea with and over 90% of its trade is carried by ship. UK maritime sector accounts for over 2% of the entire economy and supports one in every 50 jobs. The UK’s first ever …Read More »
The Russians unveiled their new doctrine last Sunday on board the frigate Admiral Gorshkov, and in the presence of President Vladimir Putin. “The degree of Russia’s economic involvement in the global [economy] has increased in recent years. At the same time, rivalry for owning the resources of the World’s Oceans …Read More »
US is deploying Navy Platform SBX1 to trigger Earthquakes in North Korea, as HAARP weapon, is it pure speculation?
The US Navy’s Sea-Based X-Band Radar (SBX-1) a floating, self-propelled, mobile, active electronically scanned array radar station, is a part of Ground-Based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system of the U.S. Missile Defense Agency.Read More »
A new camera developed by Battelle will greatly reduce the time, effort and expense needed to create a complete 360-degree viewpoints in the depths of the ocean or in other hard to reach places.Read More »
