Worried about the U.S. Navy active duty forces is difficult to deal with China will be equipped with advanced systems

Navy Times Web site published an article on January 1, 2030, said the U.S. Navy is expected to equipment, including laser weapons, unmanned air combat system, including a series of advanced naval systems, improve the safety of soldiers fighting at sea. The article said that the U.S. Navy planners have always regarded China as the biggest rival, but relying solely on force can not cope with the rise of China is now the challenges of the future of these advanced weapons systems will be promising.
The article said that by 2020, the U.S. Navy in Virginia with a computer console to use laser weapons and fighter jets cruise at sea, and spend more time protecting group of space satellites and sea attack. Many military analysts believe that the future of the U.S. Navy will be a lighter, faster military.
article points out, the Office of Naval Research is currently working on a free electron laser (FEL), it can be applied to land, sea and air in three areas. From the speed point of view, free-electron laser is ideal for ballistic missile defense weapons, but also may lead to the Aegis combat system revolution. Now, U.S. Navy officials are in the city of Monterey, California, Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) on the free-electron laser technology for the actual test.
In addition, the project also includes related weapons fitted out in the Navy air wing unmanned jet fighter. The unmanned air combat system for the first scheduled flight in 2010. Furthermore, many Navy leaders have said publicly that the unmanned air combat system will be replaced after the 2025 F/A-18 E/F “Super Hornet.”
article quoted Virginia TASC information strategy consulting firm, predicted John Miguel (John Meagher) as saying, in addition to the above mentioned technologies, but also may be some other typical techniques. Such as micro-technology. In this regard, Miguel explained: “We have more sophisticated manufacturing technology, the appearance of more compact equipment’s ability to use the Navy to do more underwater detection, surveillance and reconnaissance.” And Miguel also predicted that the seamen were using the computer console next to control unmanned intelligence gathering equipment, like a real goldfish, as the Navy has not yet penetrated into those who can not close the port or other waters.
The article said that the next 20 years the biggest change is expected to place the safety of Navy personnel will be greatly enhanced. In this regard, Kevin said: “With the automation and the increasing number of unmanned equipment, which would endanger the safety of seafarers of the work performed by the machine will gradually, and, more importantly, we must immediately begin to take action.”
In addition, the seamen might have the greatest impact are those that reduce the level of concern of naval weapons and equipment. For example, the new paints and coatings will reduce the number of weapons maintenance requirements. U.S. Brookings Institution senior fellow Bidexinge added that the Navy to use the way future technology is not like this use of the joystick, keyboard and computer screen, but to use the phone’s vibration equipment – not by listening to and is feeling – to perform related tasks. Singh, referring to the nervous system, pointed out the advantages of learning, which enables direct control of the brain related devices. Currently, doctors have learned how to control the computer cursor through the brain and even artificial limbs. Singh said that the future, the sensor is installed directly to the skull may be people’s thoughts into action.
article points out, many naval planners regarded China as a rival of the U.S. Navy. Troy, Michigan, USA Professor Walsh, participate in Washington’s national security reform projects Sheila Luo Nisi, said: “The current China is a very subtle way of an economic war with us, in the past been so subtle, we With the power of the Navy can maintain a smooth flow of shipping routes. and now frankly, the U.S. Navy is not easy to do this. “Analysts are also worried that, in those rich in fish resources and a strong sea wind power capacity, the United States Navy’s expansion may lead to population explosion, natural resources dropped.
In addition, Miguel said: “In the future, to maintain and safeguard the needs of deployed systems is enormous.” In this case, anti-piracy and asymmetric terrorist threats will become the United States Navy’s priorities. However, the asymmetric threat does not always come from low-tech opponents. With the continuous advance of science and technology, the majority of pirates are a small country would be even high-tech equipment. (Spring)
