Submarinos Americanos deverão receber tecnologia stealth até 2030


Por: Redação OD

Os novos submarinos da U.S Navy irão ser equipados com tecnologia 'stealth' permitindo assim a criação de submarinos menos visíveis para o mundo em termos de detecção, informou a revista The National Interest. Segundo os dados da publicação, se trata da passagem para um novo tipo de popa, parecido com a letra X, eque permitirá reduzir o ruído de movimento do submarino e melhorar sua maneabilidade. Esta nova tecnologia, que está sendo desenvolvida pela empresa General Dynamics Electric Boat, será aplicada em submarinos da classe Ohio, que são agora o núcleo das forças estratégicas ofensivas dos EUA, informou na publicação citando como fonte desta notícia, o vice-presidente da empresa, Will Lennon.

Littoral Combat Ship USS Freedom Suffers Main Propulsion Diesel Engine Problem


By: Wording OD

The U.S. Navy's first littoral combat ship USS Freedom (LCS 1) experienced a casualty to one of the ship's main propulsion diesel engines (MPDE) on July 11 caused by a leak from the attached seawater pump mechanical seal that resulted in seawater entering the engine lube oil system. The crew took action to address the leak, and Freedom returned to homeport July 13 on her own power to conduct repairs on a separate, unrelated issue. While in port, the crew performed seawater contamination procedures. From July 19-28, the ship returned to sea to complete its portion of the Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) exercise using gas turbine engines rather than its MPDEs.

Por: Redação OD

A empresa de construção naval General Dynamics Electric Boat entregou à Marinha norte-americana um submarino que custou as cifras de U$s 2,7 bilhões. Conforme dados destacos pela agência de notícias, Associated Press, a construção deste submarino demorou quase cinco anos e meio. Ele será batizado de USS Illinois, em honra de estado natal da esposa do presidente dos EUA Michelle Obama. A primeira-dama deverá acompanhar o trabalho do submarino e a vida da tripulação. O submarino teve a proa redesenhada com dois tubos grandes para lançamento de mísseis Tomahawk em vez dos 12 tubos menores. Os tubos maiores foram projetados para que a Marinha tenha flexibilidade para também poder lançar armas do futuro e veículos não tripulados, disse Blomstedt, vice-presidente da Electric Boat, citado pela AP.

Como os Estados Unidos usam sua frota de submarinos para fazer seus ataques cibenéticos


Por: Redação OD
O jornal norte-americano "The Washington Post" apresentou uma matéria, na qual ela explica como os EUA fazem os seus ataques cibernéticos contra outros países usando seus submarinos militares. Os autores do artigo lembraram toda a controvérsia em torno da Rússia por ter sido o suposto executor de ataques cibernéticos que ocorreram nos EUA, incluindo aqueles que têm que ver com a atual campanha eleitoral. No entanto, o artigo revela como os EUA, durante anos, têm realizado esses ataques em todo o mundo usando suas forças de submarinos para manipular os sinais. "Na verdade, os submarinos são um componente essencial na estratégia cibernética norte-americana. Eles protegem o país de ataques cibernéticos e, o que é mais interessante, desempenham um papel importante na realização deles", relata The Washington Post citando representantes da Marinha dos EUA.

By Wording OD

The US Navy has made two further steps in the field of manned-unmanned cooperation. At a flight test in 2 June 2016, a Northrop Grumman MQ-4C Triton unmanned air system (UAS) and a Boeing P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) showcased two new key capabilities that will bring maritime operations to a new level.The two platforms were successful in exchanging full motion video via Common Data Link (CDL) during flight. It was the first time that the UAV and the aircraft conducted such an interoperability operation. The Triton tracked a target with its electro-optical/infrared camera and transmitted the video to a P-8, which was flying at a distant area.
