Post here all new naval developments.
The US Navy just had a major breakthrough with autonomous minesweeper
Textron's Common Unmanned Surface Vehicle works with Raytheon's sonar and mine neutralizer to autonomously find and destroy mines. The Navy recently demonstrated the capability, according to the Chief of Naval Operations deputy head of mine warfare.
A not so new news.
Navy Starting Work on New SSN(X) Nuclear Attack Submarine with long range wespons
The U.S. Navy is starting early preparation work to design a new nuclear attack submarine to replace the Virginia-class boats (SSN-774) in the 2030s. The new attack boat would become operational in 2044 after the last Block VII Virginias are built.
One of the areas Johnson has already indentified as critical for SSN(X) is integration with off-board systems. Vice Adm. Mike Connor, Commander of Submarine Force, Atlantic (COMSUBLANT), said that future submarine weapons for both the Virginia and the future SSN(X) would be networked extremely long-ranged weapons.
Some of the concepts include a new prototype torpedo propulsion system from Pennsylvania State University — a torpedo could hit targets that could hit targets more than 200 nautical miles away.
Behold The Navy's New Radar For Nimitz Class Carriers And Amphibious Assault Ships
SPY-6V2 is a very close relative of the Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR) system, also known as SPY-6V1, being fielded aboard the new Arleigh Burke class Flight III destroyers. AMDR is made up of 37 individual Radar Modular Assemblies (RMAs) that are basically two foot by two foot active electronically scanned array radar 'blocks' that can be easily swapped in and out as needed. This modularity means that the system can also be scaled up or down for different applications with relative ease.
UK selects design for Type 31 frigate
The Type 31 is designed as a general-purpose
To cater to increased Chinese naval activity in the Indian Ocean, the Government of India has approved an expansion and upgrade plan for the Navy. Over the next ten years, the Navy is set to acquire 56 new ships, to include submarines, minesweepers and fleet ships. Some of these will be replacements for the ships presently held by the Indian Navy while the rest will be an addition to the naval fleet. The above is in addition to the 32 ships and submarines under construction or under contract to be built in private and public shipyards in India. Of the 56 new ships, there are six submarines that are being contracted. These are in addition to the Kalvari-class submarines that are being built by Mazagon Dock Limited (MDL), in collaboration with French company DCNS. Kalvari is the Indian Navy’s first indigenous Scorpene-class stealth submarine, the first of which is undergoing sea trials. Six of these submarines are being built under the much-delayed Project 75.
No doubt there'll be 'bugs' in the system.
