  • Download Autonomous Vehicles in Support of Naval Operations by National Research Council, Division on Engineering and PDF

    By National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Naval Studies Board, Committee on Autonomous Vehicles in Support of Naval Operations

    Autonomous autos (AVs) were utilized in army operations for greater than 60 years, with torpedoes, cruise missiles, satellites, and goal drones being early examples.1 they've got additionally been familiar within the civilian sector--for instance, within the disposal of explosives, for paintings and dimension in radioactive environments, by way of a number of offshore industries for either growing and preserving undersea amenities, for atmospheric and undersea examine, and by way of in computerized and robot manufacturing.

    Recent army studies with AVs have regularly tested their price in quite a lot of missions, and expected advancements of AVs carry promise for more and more major roles in destiny naval operations. Advances in AV functions are enabled (and constrained) through development within the applied sciences of computing and robotics, navigation, communications and networking, strength resources and propulsion, and materials.

    Autonomous cars in help of Naval Operations is a forward-looking dialogue of the naval operational surroundings and imaginative and prescient for the military and Marine Corps and of naval undertaking wishes and power functions and boundaries of AVs. This record considers the potential for AVs for naval operations, operational wishes and know-how concerns, and possibilities for more advantageous operations.
