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 boats-drones into the information systems of warships, as a result of which the boats will be able to operate at a distance of up to 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.

        - In general, yes.
        Autonomous combat submarines with "goodies" for "partners" can be stamped relatively inexpensively.

        And according to the law of dialectics, when quantity turns into quality, the pendocs will again slam the "window of possibilities" once again cracking them on the nose, since they have already begun to try on to fit in.

      with our electronic warfare disable easy


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

          “A boat, a modified rigid-side inflatable boat used in the Royal Navy

            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 that this bummer and your whole club see our tug "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.

    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.
