U.S. Navy disclosed information about when military ship navigators receive laser gun the latest boats and unmanned submarine.
Chief of Naval research South American Navy Rear Admiral Matthew Klander said laser cannon on the deck of the South American Navy warships will be in 2 years, rather than through 4, as previously reported. It will layouts, very close to the serial vivid. «Now the fundamental issues associated with laser gun, which the number of science fiction have been resolved — said Matthew Klander. — We’re just going to make the gun through the integration of existing technologies that are quite perfect to use them on the ships. «
It is curious that Matthew Klander not worried about the lack of power generators to power the ship’s lasers, and in fact, this problem is considered to be a major obstacle to the widespread introduction of laser guns. Klander believes that it is solved and you can make a laser cannon or railgun for each particular ship — only need to consider the power requirements and dimensions. The military said that the ship’s laser testing is underway, and these tests show excellent results, namely, a laser gun, which is hit by drones.
Rear Admiral Matthew Klander also mentioned other promising developments. Namely, he read about the robot-fish BIOSwimmer, which will be able to do a huge number of different roles, from the protection of the ships in the roads to search for mines and combat swimmers.
Huge hopes for unmanned submarine, with autonomy with more than 60 days. In 2016, the first such submarine layout should go to an experienced patrols. With all this unmanned submarine with autonomy of 30 days will be available throughout the year. All this seriously increment South American fleet capacity, particularly to counter submarines, as you know, on the planet only two countries, owning a massive nuclear fleet: U.S. Our homeland. Neutralization of primary containment of nuclear weapons (ballistic missiles on submarines) one of the parties seriously upset the strategic balance of forces on the planet.
