Overall, I see the US Naval Study nicely suited for priming the pipeline of future technology, and yet, simply because they’re present, well it is not time for you to rest on our laurels due to the fact you can find other prospective enemies afoot establishing their very own weapons systems. Weapons that might challenge us inside the coming decade or two, and when you get behind in the technology race it requires years to catch up. In my humble opinion and with no ego, I think that the US Navy should have the strongest force in all of the oceans within this solar system, and I am not exaggerating when I say that either.
Okay so, not long ago, I was challenged on specifics of exactly what I mean by that statement so let me give you 8 new technologies we’ll need to maintain our naval superiority moving forward in the twenty-first century. For the US Navy, properly, yes, I have some fears I’d like to see shored up to shield our Nation, Assets, Foreign Interests, Allies, and protect shipping worldwide while keeping the capability to strike quickly or respond to Organic Disasters.
I’d like to see our Naval Researchers look into a few of these Great Projects and ideas. Below I have listed a number of my ideas, but realize this was a 10-minute exercise, so there are lots of far more bundled in my head, to add to this list:
- Capability to Swarm combat UAVs (carrier-based)
