Unmanned boats + unmanned aerial vehicles! The U.S. Navy will build a clustered "ghost fleet"

on January 28, Chris Osborne's article "building a clustered ghost fleet by the U.S. Navy" was published on the bimonthly website of the national interest on January 24, saying that the U.S. Navy will launch a group of interconnected small unmanned attack boats in simulated combat missions to improve command and control technology and prepare this ghost fleet for war. It is reported that the ghost fleet is composed of a large number of independent and interconnected surface ships

ghost fleet was developed by the U.S. Naval Research Office and the Naval Ocean Systems Command. It represents a strategy of the U.S. Navy, that is, to monitor, counteract, defeat and attack the enemy in a coordinated way until the fixture breaks, while the sailors on the main ship are in a far safe area with a single value of no less than

many of these boats are unmanned surface vehicles (USVs). Their purpose is to carry out intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions, find and destroy mines, and launch various attacks. Its concept is to use advanced computer algorithms to bring new autonomy to surface warfare, so that ships can coordinate information exchange, joint action without collision, and launch joint attacks

project manager Pete smalle told the warriors expert station that the ghost fleet will indeed help us in command and control and in combat scenes. The demonstration will let us know the integrated payload of USV

the article believes that with the continuous rapid development of communication and joint technology, the ability of unmanned vehicles to conduct cross domain operations at sea, land, air and underwater will become stronger and stronger. Humans at the control station can perform command and control functions using a low bandwidth connection without actually driving these vehicles

the Navy and the office of naval research have been committed to developing a series of USVs, including the unmanned induction mine sweeping system (UISS) for coastal combat ships and other ships. The system is equipped with sonar and can detect mines. A universal unmanned surface vehicle (cusv) developed by Textron is equipped with UISS

before 2009, the United States began to develop cusv. According to Textron, the cusv can carry a load of up to 4000 pounds (1 pound is about 0.45 kg). 5) overload protection: when the load exceeds 3.5% of the maximum value of each gear, drive at a speed of up to 20 knots for more than 20 hours

other applications include the use of aerial drone groups to find enemy surface targets and transmit intelligence to USVs or submarines. All these clusters will operate in a combat environment without much human intervention

some project managers of the Naval Research Office explained that the algorithm for managing autonomous maritime navigation has developed to a high level, and USVs can more effectively detect and deal with their surrounding environment on the way. Smalle said that high-tech autonomous equipment can be integrated into the USV

researchers from the Ministry of defense told warrior expert station that one area of exploration is to develop cluster technology in a biology based way. Pentagon scientists have been studying bird colonies and (2) biomimetic biological adhesion regulation and separation material bee colonies to learn more about how members of a group can move quickly and harmoniously without colliding with each other
