Anti-submarine warfare ” Sea Hunter ” DARPA to Launch ‘Ghost Ship’


The US military is hoping that Sea Hunter, the enemy of a new unmanned warship, to detect enemy submarines and monitor them,

The ship’s prototype was presented to the public on April 6 by the Pentagon as a tool to protect American global maritime dominance, Reuters reported. It is a joint venture of the US Defense Advanced Research Project Organization (DARPA) and Navy Research Office.
The 40-meter long diesel-generated vessel was dubbed “ghost ships” due to its operational capabilities of operating both under remote control and without any human assistance at all.

Hoping to cultivate the ocean for Hunter Mast by the sea, there is a wide variety of obstacles by not violating international sea law. The quartz news outlet describes the ship as “the hottest version of Google’s self-driving cars

Unlike Google cars through, the vessel will have a clear task: to track new-generation noiseless diesel-driven subs in service in Russia and China.

These half-a-dozen naval forces, like Ariel Wertheim, author of the reference of the US Navy Institute’s Reference the Day of the World ” Combat Fleets of the World”, are powered by R&D to build this. In the United States expansion in June, the Navy Research and its Defense Advanced Research Agency (DARPA) started an investigation into Sea Hunter’s the Pacific Ocean, an unknown (and disarmed yet) 40-meter trimaran, pictured.

It has been followed by an enemy submarine from the surface of the epidemic, for months, even in the high seas. Drivers in the boat probably will be able to hear their driver’s diesel engine, but this is not really a problem.

United States Navy retired Admiral Nevin Car, who now works in Leeds, has summed up a torpedo launch in City Hunter Design, which “you can not do anything about it” during the war.

According to Leeds, Sea Hunters will spend $ 20 million each. Scott Littlefield, Head of Sea Hunter Program in DARPA. The United States, says that America will be able to distinguish them by “anti-submarine-warfare continuously uninhabitable vessels” (ACTUV) programs, as the agency prefers to call it.

The construction of Sea Hunter is estimated to cost $ 20 million to the US government. $ 15,000 to $ 20,000 per day for the maintenance of the ship, a relatively low rate of regular exercise in other American warships.
