The US Navy is planning to spend billions of dollars developing new unmanned systems.
The Military.com website yesterday quoted Rear Admiral Robert Gaucher of the Pacific Fleet (US), saying that the US Navy will deploy unmanned weapons that can operate in the air, on sea seabed to the Pacific in combat exercise in 2021.
This will be the largest unmanned weapons combat exercise ever in the Pacific, to test the ability of the US Navy to coordinate unmanned technology in combat situations.
The US Navy is planning to spend billions of dollars developing new unmanned systems. On September 4, the US Navy awarded contracts worth nearly $42 million to six companies to develop plans to build large unmanned ships.
