The US Navy has formed requirements for deck UAVs

According to the "Military Industrial Courier", with a link to Flightglobal, the command of the US Navy has decided on the basic requirements for promising carrier-based unmanned aerial vehicles. The relevant documents were received by four American companies that had previously announced their readiness to take part in the creation of deck drones.

A list of prerequisites was obtained by Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman and General Atomics Aeronautical Systems. It is worth noting that they have already concluded contracts providing for the draft design of deck UAVs. Earlier, representatives of companies reported that although the basic requests have already been formulated, there has not yet been a demand from the military for the durability and stealthness of UAVs.

The development of devices will be carried out within the framework of the UCLASS project. In 2014, 122 million dollars will be spent on it, in 2015 this figure will increase to 403 million dollars. It is planned that before 2019, about 2.7 billion dollars will be spent on the development of decked UAVs.

In early January of this year, Rear Admiral Mike Manazir, head of the air combat department of the US Navy, said that the military wanted a heavier and larger deck drone than the X-47B, designed to demonstrate technology. According to Manazir, its size should be comparable to the size of the F-14 Tomcat fighter. Manazir noted that a promising machine that will be developed as part of the UCLASS project will weigh on the order of 31.8-36.3 tons.

According to the preliminary plans of the Pentagon leadership, promising deck-type UAVs will be used in the 2019-2021 years.

        As far as I understand, in drones, communication with the operator is the main vulnerability? The point of investing so much dough if over the enemy’s territory it ceases to be manned?

        Khibiny is the latest Russian electronic warfare system, which will be installed on all promising Russian aircraft.

        Everything went out. Aegis does not work, screens show turbidity, even Phalanxes cannot receive target designation! SU-24, meanwhile, passed over the Cook deck, made a combat turn and simulated a missile attack on a target. Of course, successful - because there is no opposition! Then he turned around and imitated another one. And so on - 10 times more! All attempts by technicians to revive the Aegis and give target designation for air defense failed and only then, when the silhouette of the "drying" melted in the haze above the Russian coast, the screens came to life, and the guidance systems faithfully showed a clear April glowing emptiness.

        I understand that this may be a joke. But in the long run, why not?

        American unmanned airliner Lockheed Martin RQ-170 Sentinel ... were able to land using the AvtoBAZ complex of Russian production, which was previously delivered to an Islamic country

    And meanwhile -
    Russia has begun to develop an electromagnetic catapult
    In Russia, the development of an electromagnetic catapult for aircraft carriers began. This, according to ITAR-TASS, said the Director General of the Nevsky Design Bureau Sergey Vlasov. According to him, the name of the "organization that is engaged in the creation of an electromagnetic catapult" has not yet been disclosed.

    It is difficult to say exactly how long it will take to complete the project of the electromagnetic aircraft launcher. “The problem is that the Americans have been working on this for over ten years. They will install their first electromagnetic catapult on the new aircraft carrier Gerald Ford only in 2016, ”Vlasov said, noting that such a launching device would somewhat simplify the ship's design by rejecting, for example, a nuclear installation.

    Most likely, tests of the Russian electromagnetic catapult will be carried out on one of the ground-based simulators of carrier-based aviation: in Yeysk or in the Crimea. The electromagnetic catapult is a linear induction motor, which with the help of a special trolley allows you to accelerate aircraft to the separation speed. In the USSR, such developments were not conducted.

    Currently, the United States is the only country in the world that has a working prototype of an electromagnetic catapult. It carries the EMALS designation and will be installed on promising American aircraft carriers such as the Gerald Ford. It is believed that China also has an experienced electromagnetic catapult, but its existence has not yet been officially confirmed.

    In early July 2013, the Krylov State Scientific Center evaluated the project for developing a promising Russian aircraft carrier in 400 billion rubles, of which 80 billion is the actual cost of the aircraft carrier. It is expected that the design of the new ship will be completed in 2018, four years later than previously planned. The displacement of the aircraft carrier will be about 80 thousand tons.

    The current state arms program of Russia for the 2011-2020 years does not provide for the design and construction of a new aircraft carrier. However, funds for the implementation of the project can be included in the new state arms program for the 2016-2025 years. As expected, this document will be presented to the President of Russia in 2015.

    After our scout worked on "Cook". The team observed him only visually, which can be done from the UAV. stop

    Judging by the on-board marking, the drone was part of the 66th American military intelligence brigade with a main location in Bavaria.
    According to the state corporation Rostec, the U.S. reconnaissance-strike drone MQ-5B was intercepted in the sky over the Crimea.
    According to the report, the American military intelligence brigade was transferred to the Ukrainian city of Kirovograd, from where drones make reconnaissance flights towards the Crimea and the border regions of Russia. Earlier, the appearance of such vehicles in the sky has already received reports from the Kherson region, in the area of ​​the Chongar checkpoint, Interfax reports.
    “The American brigade was armed with 18 MQ-5B drones. This is the second case of the interception of an American UAV over the Crimea. The drone was at an altitude of about 4 thousand meters and was almost invisible from the ground. Using the electronic warfare complex (electronic warfare - “IF”), Avtobaza managed to break the connection of the UAV with its American operators. As a result, the device made an emergency landing and went to the self-defense forces almost intact, ”the message says.

    A serious struggle has long been going on between the scientific schools of manned and unmanned aircraft in Russia. Unfortunately, the UAV is losing significantly. Therefore, the appearance of such information about promising developments should be a serious reason for customers to think in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
    Personally, I am sure that the next 6th generation of aviation will be unmanned. This is due, first of all, to the increase in the capacities of the software and hardware complex capable of autonomously fulfilling the majority of combat missions, as well as the proliferation of new highly protected high-speed ultra-wideband communication channels.

      you know ... I do not believe that AI is not there yet.

      You are absolutely right. He is and has been developing for over 20 years. In information technology, this area is called neurocomputers.
      Even as a cadet of the military school of radio electronics of air defense in the early 90s, our professors worked closely with KSTU, where the famous scientist Alexander Gorban was engaged in the problems of teaching neural networks. In turn, we studied the possibilities of training these neural networks to recognize radar portraits of various targets. Unfortunately, the introduction of such systems into our military equipment ran into bureaucratic obstacles associated with the lack of clear logic and predictable mathematical algorithms in neurocomputers. It was only later that a separate generally recognized mathematical direction "fuzzy logic" arose. But then, and even now, for the majority of the military, this was not an argument. But already at the end of the 90s, supermodern neurosystems of decision-making support appeared in the USA, which later began to be used on the Aegis ship complexes. Americans are so used to relying on the smart advice of the ship's AI that the occurrence of an emergency situation literally drives him crazy, along with the entire crew. The reason is that he is simply not trained to act in emergency situations. And the war, as you know, is not waged by the rules. A vivid example is the situation with a destroyer in the Black Sea, when the Khibiny on the Su-24 disabled almost all of the ship's systems. The Russian air defense system would immediately react to such actions, the suppressed radars formed bearings in special logarithmic receivers, the automated control system solved triangulation problems and issued target designations to the air defense missile systems, which also have special operating modes for the jammer. But the American air defense systems do not seem to even allow the possibility that they will be opposed by modern electronic warfare systems. Personally, I was very surprised by this 10 years ago, when I began to seriously study NOTOV systems. And what amazed me was that with good and patented methods for spatial signal selection, they hardly ever used them on their radars. I personally have repeatedly tried to get information about such systems, both officially and in a conversation with a good degree, but it seems they really do not have systems of protection against electronic warfare in their air defense systems except for the PPC mode in a wide range. But at the same time, they have made very good progress in protecting against interference with the help of spatial signal selection in GPS navigation systems. Here's a paradox.

          This is not a mutually exclusive concept, but complementing each other. If the automated control system is based on rigorous combat control algorithms, then AI is an expert decision support system for the commander’s decisions, and is especially effective in time-constrained situations.

      Games, simulators, chess ... There is no AI there. And it never was. In chess, there is an enumeration of options (roughly speaking), in games there is only an illusion of intelligence. To create an AI, you need to understand how the real one works, but for now, only the ganglion nematodes have difficulty simulating what Plus, the unsolved (or unsolvable) problem of fast and reliable pattern recognition, a person does not always cope with that either. And before the creation of AI, drones will occupy a fairly narrow niche, primarily intelligence at various levels, and, well, strikes against a weak enemy.

        The fact that AI (in the broad sense) cannot be created in the foreseeable future, I agree. If you do not go deeper, then neural networks, search algorithms, etc., etc., are just an imitation of intelligence, if we understand it as human thinking. I will offer a counterexample. Suppose someone created artificial intelligence based on comput. technicians. This is tantamount to creating a new race of people - robots that can easily displace humans. What kind of war between people can we talk about?
        You don't need a full-fledged AI to conduct a short fight. Imitation is enough. In the end, the pilot also has a limited set of maneuvers that he uses, sometimes, as they say, "on the machine."

          Imitations, imitations, can then make a cyborg easier and more efficient? For example, to mount a hawk’s brain in a fighter? smile And in the bomber - a dove wassat By the way, it is not known how the real AI will behave. Maybe he will join one of the belligerents, or in general will be engaged in philosophy?

    I hope and believe that even enemy UAVs and AIs will have the necessary tool in the kit of toilet paper thanks to Russian technology. It will be very difficult, but I'm sure it will be.

    Come on, let them build. It will turn out to be the next "Raptor" ...

    Let them create. On the approach laser weapon technology. In the year 2020, all these UAVs may already become a dead end branch of the evolution of aircraft.

      Don’t say it. The dimensions will decrease, maybe the principle. And slamming a fly at night, you will find in your hand a camera with a pin head, a microcircuit with the same head ... Here's how I will not say this garbage yet. But also not 2020.
