In February, 2016 in the United States will begin testing anti-submarine ship capable of operating without crew

According to US media reports, the first unmanned anti-submarine ship will begin testing in 2016 in the United States. Information portal Vice referenced TASS, reports that we are talking about a ship that can operate without a crew - in automatic mode. The resource writes that the first test events are scheduled for February next year and will be held in the state of California.


In February, 2016 in the United States will begin testing anti-submarine ship capable of operating without crew


The American anti-submarine ship, which, according to the American media, is capable of operating without a crew, is approximately 40 meters long. The work to create this naval drone was commissioned by DARPA, the Advanced Research Programs Directorate of the United States military. The main work was done by Leidos specialists.

The working name of the anti-submarine ship is ACTUCV. The abbreviation in Russian stands for "Automatic vessel for continuous anti-submarine surveillance." The name suggests that the ship should not be used directly to destroy submarines, although the developers say that the ACTUCV does have the function of carrying certain weapons.

Representatives of the company "Leidos" report that their anti-submarine brainchild will be significantly cheaper than maintaining, for example, a destroyer. If the average destroyer from the US budget is allocated up to 0,7 million dollars daily, then no more than 15 thousand dollars can be allocated for the ACTUCV.

On the effectiveness of the detection and likely destruction of submarines, the developers of ACTUCV do not yet apply.

          Well, the tests will begin, well, they are searching, they admit that it is no good anywhere. They won even the ships adopted for use are not suitable, the construction of Zumwalt'ov stopped at 3 instance. And earlier, when he was tested, what was he thinking? So it will be with this, or immediately otbrukuyut, or another budget drank, and then otbrukuyut.

      why spend on this toy with a remote control. A fishing net left on its course will put this miracle out of action before technical assistance arrives, there’s no crew, immediately its maintenance costs will increase, and the costs of incapacitating it are cheap.

        and the cost of disabling it penny
        - well, you can drop a light drone from a slingshot and a tank is more expensive than an RPG shot by many orders of magnitude
        the question here is: will he be able, with his active echolocation, to carry out the tasks for which he is under construction? if so, he will not be alone and there is someone to remove the network from them.

          Comedian, first carefully read the title of the article and the article:
          we are talking about a ship that can operate without a crew - in automatic mode

          On naval ships, in addition to navigational instruments, they keep watch on the bridge as a signalman and his assistant, who conduct visual control.
          And so for your overall development:
          24 April, / SEAFARERS JOURNAL /. On the Yangtsi River (China), the Dutch ship "Swift" wrapped a net on a screw, odin.tc.
          The incident occurred at the exit of Nanbu County.
          The rescue operation, organized by local authorities, lasted 4 days, during which they cleaned the screw.

          Russian rescue divers successfully carried out an operation to free the propeller of the Norwegian tanker Norvarg from the winding network
          Russian rescue divers successfully carried out an operation to free the propeller of the Norwegian tanker Norvarg from the winding network. An emergency in the Barents Sea took place on October 7, and towing a ship to the port took several days. On board the tanker - mainly the Russian crew.

          On Sunday, the head of the Northern expeditionary rescue team of the Federal Fisheries Agency Anatoly Leontyev told TASS that the release of the screws took about two hours from the divers. This was done in the Norwegian port of Batsfjord in the Barents Sea, where the tanker brought the rescue tug "Purga".
          Now the rescue "Purga" is sent to Murmansk. The Norwegian tanker after checking the main engine will continue its work.
          The Norwegian tanker was left without a course in the economic zone of the Barents Sea in the evening of October 7. Nets wound around his screw. After receiving a distress signal, the rescue ship Purga headed for him. The tugging operation was carried out during a seven-point storm, 20 meters per second and in the dark.
          The distance from the place of emergency to the coast of Norway was about 200 miles. Towing took about two days. The Norwegian tanker was delivered by Russian tug to the Varanger Fjord that night according to the schedule, but due to the strong current, the Norwegian pilot recommended another port - Botsfjord.

          And so on.

            This is an autonomous sonar, it will not be tasked with a secretive transatlantic independent transition and there will probably be one support vessel for several of these, as long as it is a prototype research platform, and on serial ones they will find a way to get rid of most of the identified shortcomings. the network is wound up - we remove the screw, put water cannons, well, etc. And then here in the general opinion, all military R&D in the states and any new products are exceptional crap for cutting dough
            P.S. I’m caught, let’s say such a bot to our submariners, well, I’m not confused yet, or they have already untangled it in the state authorities, it is noisy with sonars, it is hysterical in the radio range, and what should they do? The network to try to put it at the rate or be washed away

              The matter is generally promising. Sonars are being improved, the algorithms of their work, too, well, the counteraction of the REB (noise immunity) and much more. In fact, even if one detects that this “cheap” (although they don’t have such a thing) drone is under some influence, then in this area, it is very likely that more serious forces and means must be used.
              But with autonomy what? What kind of power plant should stand? Today, an acceptable option is nuclear, because it’s obviously not enough to ensure the operation and operation of the battery equipment, it’s necessary to service the internal combustion people ..., that’s the question of price, and safety also arises.
              One can’t believe that the Yankees coped with the surrendered problem. If so then a very serious application.
              Something like this. hi

    For all the comic nature (irony and causticity) of the above comments, you need to be aware that the Americans first drones appeared, with the help of which they coolly cut budget expenses + perform all sorts of different delicate operations.
    It may well turn out that something will work out in the maritime direction of the states. With all my dislike for this country and its politicians, it would be foolish to consider them short-sighted and unreasonable.

    Hmm ... As well as this drone, in what water area it will (can) operate, with what radius of action ... Well, nobody canceled typhoon storms ... And many other things ...

    It seems to me that the loot is swelling, but the result will be far from predicted in terms of efficiency ...

      there was info about them in the 2013 year here.

      quote:
      "The program for creating ACTUV includes the 4 phase. In August 2012, the 1 phase of the program was announced (at this stage, the feasibility of its implementation was determined, as well as other evaluation activities). A preliminary schedule of work for 2 and 3 "The stages are about 36 months, the 4-th final stage is still 18 months. Accordingly, we are talking about the stages of development, construction and demonstration testing of an experimental model of a robot boat."


      and also there were words about the cut, about "they will do a bunch of years." But then 4 years have passed and the tests begin.
      The control and maneuvering system for independent movement on the high seas according to international rules has already been developed. On the model, 4 times smaller.
      By the way, the system is defense.
      There are no weapons on it.
      Destroying an unarmed ship in peacetime in neutral waters, albeit a deserted one - you won’t get scandal.
      Its task is to find the boat, to identify, to pursue it constantly, until it leaves or until the warship approaches.
      Transferring information in real-time is the main task!
      The enemy will be sure to know that he is detected. This is also the main task. The adversary must know that they are leading him.
      Perhaps there will even be a transmission to open channels of radio communication about the submarine, its identification, location, course, depth, speed for a greater effect.
      And any civilian ship, any amateur radio - will know about it.
      Discovered - horseradish wash off later. The propaganda effect will be transcendental.

      These “prodigies”, when they are put into operation in sufficient numbers, will drive our submarines away from the US Navy bases for at least 1000-2000 miles.
      And finding Ohio out and escorting, the task is extremely difficult, but here it becomes almost impossible.

      Looking at how the boats of the USA are hosted almost in the Kola Bay, we need to have the same types of protection.
