future Navy will look like? What technical equipment they will use? Their enemies who might be? New Year, the United States, “Navy Times” Web site on January 2 will be published in “2030 or so science fiction naval true” vision of the article, the U.S. Navy for 20 years after the bold prediction. Some experts believe that, from a technical perspective, these projections and assumptions may not materialize, but is limited by the interests of various services within the U.S. military disputes and the vagaries of the international situation, whether the future will be like the U.S. Navy as described, there are still many uncertainties.
advanced equipment like the exposure to science fiction
“Navy Times’ description of the U.S. Navy in 2030 as science fiction: laser weapons sailors who may spend , fighter jets over the ocean in Virginia by a computer console control surface at the same time, the U.S. Navy spent the time to defend satellites in space, will defend the aircraft carrier attack groups of the time at sea as much.
reported that the Navy’s most experts agree that the Navy will be tomorrow’s “more light, faster”, “2030 will need our weapons to the speed of light.” Director of Office of Naval Research Rear Admiral text ? Carl said, the department is developing a free electron laser can be used in sea, land and air, but also equipped with ballistic missile defense system, will “Aegis” system to bring revolutionary change. The laser weapon can replace the existing fleet of ships equipped with cannons and missiles, not only coming from various angles to intercept the aircraft, missile, or even direct and surface warships fire. In addition to the 2030 U.S. aircraft carrier is on the main landing unmanned fighter jets. In 2009, the U.S. military procurement of unmanned combat aircraft was the first time the number of aircraft, the report said, “unmanned combat air system” will make its maiden flight this year, senior U.S. Navy claimed that it will replace active duty after 2025 F/A-18E/F “Super Hornet.” But not all of the active equipment will be eliminated, such as aircraft carriers. Planning in the U.S. Navy, at least the next half century, the giant sea will remain the core of U.S. Navy battle group.
for ordinary sailors, their work may serve as a fundamental change. ? Strategic scientist John Mogg for example, as a breakthrough in miniaturization technology, the sailors will be computer controlled micro-manipulation stage no intelligence gathering devices, “That looks more like a fish, and can penetrate into the enemy’s harbor and now the Navy can not reach other areas. ” New paint and coating will also reduce the machine’s maintenance requirements, in addition to the direct control of various types of equipment through the brain is also possible, doctors have learned how to make the brain control the computer mouse. The future, wear a special hat with sensors, the user can make ideas into action.
asymmetric threats is the main enemy
for the U.S. Navy, the future depends on what will be developed into a judge who is the U.S. Navy’s main operational opponents. 2009, U.S. media has been speculation China’s anti-aircraft missiles, said the aircraft developed specifically for the U.S. weapons will trump card carrier into a “sea live coffin.” However, “Navy Times” that although China may become the main U.S. competitor, but not the number one enemy. Reported that most of the Navy policy makers predict that China will be a strong competitor on par with the U.S. Navy’s identity emerged. Participate in “national security reform project,” Professor Sheila Walsh ? Luo Nisi said: “China is in a very subtle way with the start of our war, if not so subtle, we will come forward to protect the route of the Navy . “
” Navy Times “that, compared with the Chinese naval threat, rampant piracy and the asymmetric threat of terrorism is most concerned about the future of the U.S. Navy. Future asymmetric threats are not always those open boats, carrying AK-47 rifles tried to challenge the U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups of the image of pirates or terrorists, as technology advances, some small countries and even pirates have access to high-tech equipment. “Navy Times” worried that the U.S. high-tech will be a double-edged sword, many countries or organizations can buy these technologies, and to defend against these high-tech equipment, the U.S. needs to make up for the flaws more. In addition, with the population expansion and natural resource consumption, when the sea became rich fishing grounds and to the world critical to wind farms, the need to rapidly expand the size of the U.S. Navy to protect these waters. ? John Mogg, said, “to maintain and protect our national assets placed there is a huge demand.”
vision can come true has been highly variable
“Navy Times” said that technology advances and the task of conversion will work on future U.S. naval officers and troops have a lot of cultural influence. Overall, the United States naval officers and the next 20 years will be more secure. Those more intelligent, autonomy and unmanned equipment will allow officers and men from a dangerous way of fighting freed, and let the robot to enter to complete these tasks. The most critical changes will affect the future of the Navy and its leadership of cultural orientation.
idea for this series, some experts believe that, from a technical perspective, these ideas are possible. However, the U.S. military disputes between the interests of the various military services and the vagaries of the international environment, the future of the U.S. Navy’s vision can come true variable is still very great.
