In the UK, is shown in action boat-UAV. According to a representative of BAE Systems, Les Gregory, “the technology demonstrated in the coming 10 years will change the face of naval operations.” This portal writes Flotprom.




“The boat, which is a modified inflatable boat with a rigid board used in the Royal Navy, is able to work offline for up to 12 hours. It can operate both in the mode of a given program and with the help of a remote control. Its speed reaches 38 nodes. ”, - reports the portal with reference to the company-developer.

The boat is equipped with a navigation radar, a laser rangefinder and an infrared camera with an 360 gr.

“This technology is a very durable and fast unmanned boat that can perform a number of reconnaissance and observation functions, even when moving at high speed or with strong agitation,” said Gregory.

According to him, "the boat control system, as well as the software was developed by the English company ASV".

Gregory noted that “in the future it is planned to integrate the management of UAVs into the information systems of warships, as a result of which the boats will be able to operate at a distance of 40 kilometers from their carriers.”



"These boats can be placed on the frigates" Type 23 "and destroyers" Type 45 ", as well as being built aircraft type" Queen Elizabeth "," - said a company representative.

      I do not see anything extravagant in this. Maybe because he attended a ship-making club in his childhood?

        - In general, yes.
        Autonomous combat submarines with "hotels" for "partners" - you can stamp relatively inexpensively.

        And according to the law of dialectics, when the quantity goes into quality, the “window of opportunity” will shut again at the pendocs once again cracking it in the nose, as they have already tried on to fit in.

      Hmm, I wonder how? The autonomous part of the brain can not be turned off (well, except perhaps from the gun). A communication channel to score in the widest range (and most likely there are several of them from a meter to a millimeter, probably "jumping" with a broadening of the spectrum and a smeared signal at the noise level) is unthinkable, and you yourself will go blind. It seems that the artificial brain is seriously changing many things, like once a steam engine. what

          Professor, I just read the article.
          “A boat, a modified rigid-side inflatable boat used in the Royal Navy

          And no one doubts the "greatness" of your army. Take it easy.

            I haven’t written a word about our army. Previously, flying models were also laughed at, now it’s no laughing matter. Do not giggle over inflatable boats. If desired, thousands of such boats can be inflated, and if desired, they can turn into kamikazes.

              Yeah!
              Would I personally recommend it to him?

              And I would not recommend catching this dugout and your entire club in front of our tugboat "Agile" laughing !

              And here you are in vain. I did not giggle at all, as you put it. We assume that the word had. You often write much meaner and with frank irony.

      You do not understand is unique and unparalleled in the world boat that in the next 10 years will change the face of naval operations. smile

      In general, they wrote about marine patrol unmanned vehicles in the ZVO in the first half of the 90s.

    In the UK, a drone boat is shown in action.

    We must also come up with something similar and equip such boats ... hehe he CALIBRES ....

    such a boat went into a given area according to a given program ... fired ... and sailed back to reload, cheaply and cheerfully and does not need to contain expensive aircraft carriers, cruisers and other monsters.

      Caliber can be pulled even from the Caspian Sea at 1,5 km, sculpting a drone traveling 1,5-2000 km will be more difficult.

      as a result, boats can operate at a distance of up to 40 kilometers from their carriers

      If you still control the UAV, not just from surface objects, but raise another intermediate air UAV into the air, then in this case it is possible to increase the range by hundreds of kilometers and even more distant missions. Still ahead, it is not worth stopping, but it is worth developing the idea until a logically completed project.

    And what's the point? They made an inflatable unmanned boat, damn it remains to attach the motor to the surfboard and set it as a promising rocket torpedo. In childhood, they made foam plastic boats for radio control, that I was a genius too? Here, the Jews have a cool development that allows patrolling the bay, is armed with a machine gun and a grenade launcher, it runs around in a circle set by its computer. And this cut dough, not development.
