The American publication announced the acceleration of the work of the US Navy on the secret multi-domain project Overmatch

The US Navy has accelerated work on the implementation of the Overmatch project, which was kept secret for almost two years. According to the American press, the project represents the contribution of the US Navy to the Pentagon program to unite all types of the country's armed forces into a single multi-domain force that could simultaneously and smoothly operate on land, at sea, in the air, in space and in cyberspace. .


Rear Admiral Doug Small, who heads the Naval Information Systems Command and Project Overmatch, called the implementation of the project a priority for fleet, according to Defense News. As part of the project, it is planned to introduce more unmanned systems, which will become nodes for collecting intelligence data with their subsequent transfer to ships and coastal command centers.

Since ships are inherently disintegrated, the Navy puts a lot of emphasis on improving the efficiency of information exchange between individual ships, as well as ships and air forces, ships and ground forces. Such coherence is necessary in the context of the growing risks of a confrontation between the United States and China in the Asia-Pacific region, American military experts say.

Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Mike Gilday named Project Overmatch the Navy's No. 2020 priority in 2, following the delivery of the Columbia-class ballistic missile submarine. The project involves a combined team of industry workers and naval officers who are focused on solving a number of key tasks in the field of analytics and infrastructure.

According to the head of the Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies and retired Air Force Lieutenant General David Deptula, it's all about data management and data exchange. Without the appropriate infrastructure, it will be impossible to work with connections and the network, the expert emphasized.

One of the first stages of the program implementation will be the demonstration of an aircraft carrier strike group in 2023. This event is already called the "start" for the project. Subsequently, if all goes well, the hardware and software will be deployed to all US Navy aircraft carrier strike groups.

However, the financial component of the project implementation is also very important. In 2023, the US Navy requested $195 million, up 167% from the amount received in FY 2022. The American press does not provide other details due to the increased secrecy of the project. The Pentagon is very afraid that China, the main competitor of the United States in the oceans, will be aware of the work on the project. American experts, in turn, recall that Russia and China are spending huge sums on military science and technology, including artificial intelligence and accelerating the exchange of information on the battlefield. The US cannot afford to fall behind potential adversaries, according to the Pentagon.

    In China, maybe on technology, we have cuts, at the output, an elementary connection is not present everywhere. What kind of science, technology is there, including artificial intelligence and accelerating the exchange of information on the battlefield))

      You probably are not friends with logic.
      The vast territory gives both pluses and minuses to the state, and therefore, in order to ensure communication over the entire area, it is necessary to drive one satellite or a certain number of poles, repeaters, towers and a bunch of wires with equipment into space for a certain distance. And it turns out much harder and more expensive than in any other country.
      The same applies to the road surface, electrification, gas supply and so on.
      Can you imagine the length of Russia's borders with other countries, and if our border guards were removed from there, then how many fighters we would recruit to solve tedious problems.
      And you have cut and drunk everything with zero output. Think logically and sovereignly.

        Can you imagine that since the time of Karatsupa, the technique of border protection has changed. It really costs money...

            I was lucky to have an acquaintance with quite rich people by Soviet standards. And after the 90s I met people who lived in abundance. I never envied gratuitous money and stolen goods.
            I made a rule for myself that you can’t just pass by cheating and theft. Labor money (albeit small) is much more valuable than stolen billions.
            The fact is that living in the state, we - ordinary citizens have the right to express an opinion on the reasons for spending budget funds for the wind.
            This is bestiality, when some people in the country need material assistance, while others burn money to satisfy lust.

            Yesterday I went to the Yarche store and did some shopping. Such a habit of buying and estimating the approximate total cost of purchases. The girl behind the cashier miscalculated for 200 rubles. I returned and asked her to count the goods and check with the check (it seemed to me that I paid little). As a result, she did not lose these 200 rubles, but they would not bring me happiness ...

            That is why I despise officials who hypocritically talk about the difficult situation in the economy, receiving annual incomes of tens of millions.
            This is the vicious practice of our guarantor, who did not even dare to make the progressive personal income tax scale the same as in China (for example)

              I understand you perfectly.
              But what exactly to do at the moment to do everything the way you want, and most importantly, who will do it?
              It turns out that we all know what to do, but how realistic and concrete it is to the point that no one wants or my proposal, and let the rest do it. Everyone is ready to criticize and point out mistakes, and everything else is not my business.
              Well, take the "Book of Offers" in the store and write a review, don't slip the payoff to the traffic cop, tell the director to cut his salary, tell the homeless in the end to pay taxes on the collected bottles, and the wisest thing in the UN is to write a petition with appeals, so that all officials around the world do not steal, do not lobby and work honestly. Here it will be the case.

        There is nothing to nod at a distance when the army sent to war is forced to buy Chinese civilian radios, and the head of the Main Directorate of Communications of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is under investigation for a particularly large fraud in the total amount of about 6,7 billion rubles.

          I nod at a distance in order to understand the scale of the country and how much it costs us, but the fact that officials and generals steal is for the prosecutor’s office to figure out and that’s right, I support you and I’ll even say more that it is necessary to completely introduce the confiscation of all the personal wealth of those who steal up to relatives, leaving them what they really earned with their labor (so that there are no excesses just in case), and so let them live 20 ... 25 years in remote places and honestly work for the good of the Motherland.

            According to Murza, the army at one time had a project to provide troops with normal communications. But when almost 40% of the funding was stolen from this project, the army was in fact without normal radio stations, and individual units were forced to purchase communications at their own expense. Against this background, Wagner and individual units from the LDNR, which have been at the front for a long time, have already purchased encrypted digital communications themselves, and therefore it is much more difficult for dill to fight with them.

    But nothing that the US defense budget is more than the total of the following 5 (!!!) countries combined?! And you face the threat of "falling behind" there? Maybe it's because someone saws too much?
    The US Department of Defense failed its fifth-ever audit by failing to report 61% of its assets, reports The Hill, citing Pentagon spokesman Mike McCord.

    Project Super Coincidence. Does not require dominance in microelectronics. Launching into orbit buckshot charges into orbits opposite to the trajectories of military satellites. The only question is when the Geostrategist realizes that the enemy, possessing modern means of reconnaissance and target designation, can suddenly destroy all of his strategic weapons. What the recent incident showed: it’s good that Soviet trash arrived and not the latest cruise missile with a nuclear charge. It's good that not for all purposes at once.
