Companies Boeing and Lockheed Martin received contracts for the development of a giant unmanned submarine, the range of tasks which far exceeds the rest of the submarines, the newspaper said To Pravda.Ru.


In the USA, the development of a “giant” unmanned submarine has begun


According to the newspaper, one of the main tasks of the designers is to “search for engineering and technical solutions that would allow in a short time and with minimal cost to organize the production of the unmanned submarine Kasatka (" Orca "), which will be able to cover maximum distances in a short time" .

It is assumed that in the future underwater drones will be equipped with special sensors, exclusive mechanisms and, perhaps, even weaponsHowever, today the submarines plan to use only for the transport of goods.

“The cost of a government grant revealed to the media: 43,2 million dollars. For this amount, the US administration will receive five prototypes of "Kasatki". To distinguish submarines from other drones will be a wider field of action, ”the newspaper writes.

For example, a submarine “will be able to go to the conflict zone, lay a mine there and return, while an unmanned submarine will be able to work autonomously for several weeks or even months, and will receive new tasks by contacting the control center,” the publication says.

          Even the "exceptional" themselves understand that the machine cannot work endlessly. The moment will come and you will have to abruptly go on a diet. And the further they pull it, the stronger the crisis will be.

      Drug supplies from Afghanistan under threat?

      Rather, under insurance. If suddenly (blocking the land channels of drug supply by Afghanistan in Russia), then the unmanned "Killer Whales" is an intelligent safety net to create workarounds for selling products. Imagine the development of this direction: "Underwater Commodity with dope containers without complications with the border (with the condition of sea access). Delivery point is a place known only to the client (dealer) and the supplier. "
      PS: How are our funds doing? early underwater detection?

    Much more money was spent on the development of the F-35 and they gave birth to something intelligible after a decade and a half ... and that unmanned submarine, and high-speed and capable of working autonomously. At the same time, 5 prototypes are waiting. What is it, if not the development of budget money?

    It is unclear what "giant" means. What is the displacement?
    Isn’t it easier to try to remake the existing submarine into a “drone”?

    In a conventional submarine, a very significant proportion of the volume, systems, and cost is allocated to life support, control, and rescue systems for people. A drone with a sufficiently developed AI (problem!) In theory should be much cheaper in production, and even more so in operation.

      Cheaper? Seriously?
      The lack of costs for the crew and the LSS, respectively, will be compensated by the price of the program for the managing company ... although the price of the computer itself can be brought to sky-high heights and call it AI.
      However, everything new can not be cheap ... it's normal, to certain limits.
      Let's wait - we'll see.

        Yeah ... and then, due to a separate, rather dry soldering, a lot of iron, man-hours, and dangerous weapons disappear without a trace in the World Ocean, and after a couple of hours, days, weeks, a system glitch becomes a universal headache ...

              This is AI. So I'm not confusing anything.
              Artificial Intelligence (AI; ​​Eng. Artificial intelligence, AI) - (1) the science and technology of creating intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programs; (2) property of intelligent systems perform creative functionswhich are traditionally considered the prerogative of man

                Creative functions are based on abstract logic, and an abstract way of thinking ... It’s human nature (for starters, let's take him, a human, as an AI sample) to fantasize, add irrationality to his actions, and even to fool sometimes ... And the Machine obeys the program algorithm . A man can only lie for a momentary surge of emotions. Can you teach this to the Machine?

                  Neural network is not a program. Take an interest in a materiel for a start. And about emotions just the other day in Moscow, at the Neuroinformatics-2017 conference, they talked about how the MIFI at the neural network was trained to experience emotions.
                  “Students played a computer game with three other participants, where their actions were based on relationships to each other. Of course, they did not know exactly who the neural network was for. At the end of the study, people were asked with whom, in their opinion, they interacted with - man or artificial intelligence? According to the results of the survey, it turned out that the subjects were unable to distinguish the car from their colleagues. ”

                  Well, or here, listen to the writings of the neural network from Yandex, I strongly doubt that you can distinguish from the texts of the real Letov.
