US Navy Ships that don’t need sailors: A Navy Ship Sailed to Hawaii and Back With No One on Board

[The USA is spending an unbelievable amount of money on military technology. I think the goal is to dominate the world in the next century. But to be honest, I think bigger things, like race will come into play. These are no doubt the plans of the war mongering Jews and the stupid elite. But the day will come when white Americans will ask themselves WHAT are they fighting for. And when that happens, technology will not matter. 

For the record, Tesla demonstrated a radio controlled ship to the British in about 1890. So the idea has been around for a long time, but for many practical reasons it was never used. I'm curious to see how these things pan out during actual combat. I like automation but I also think there are limitations depending on the enemy one fights. Jan]

A 132-foot-long self-driving ship made history by traveling from San Diego to Hawaii’s Pearl Harbor and back again without sailors aboard to guide its way.

The Sea Hunter, an autonomous trimaran developed for submarine hunting and counter-mine missions, traveled thousands of miles between San Diego and Pearl Harbor last month. Naval News was first to report on the ship’s breakthrough voyage.

Crew members from an escort vessel boarded the Sea Hunter for short durations to check electrical and propulsion systems, according to a press release from Leidos, a science and technology company that designed and built the Sea Hunter. For most of the voyage, though, the ship was unmanned.

"The recent long-range mission is the first of its kind and demonstrates to the U.S. Navy that autonomy technology is ready to move from the developmental and experimental stages to advanced mission testing," Gerry Fasano, the defense group president at Leidos, said in the release.

The Office of Naval Research (ONR), which led the test transit to and from Hawaii, declined a request for an interview, citing operational security concerns.

Dan Brintzinghoffer, with Leidos’ maritime systems division, said the idea isn’t to replace ships with vehicles like Sea Hunter, but to free up personnel aboard bigger vessels to take on more complex tasks.

"Autonomous vehicles will likely focus on the ‘dull, dirty or dangerous’ missions sets and could operate around the world’s oceans," Brintzinghoffer said. "For example, an autonomous vessel can conduct hydrographic survey missions, freeing manned ships to accomplish other missions."

When the Navy christened the Sea Hunter in 2016, officials said it could change the nature of U.S. maritime operations. It uses a suite of navigation tools and automated lookouts that allow it to safely sail near other vessels in any weather or traffic conditions during the day or night.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency led the design and construction of the vessel and then teamed with ONR for open-water testing.

The project was fully transferred to ONR in early 2018, said Bob Freeman, an agency spokesman, when it moved into a "much more security-sensitive area of research."

Leidos is currently building a second Sea Hunter hull, Brintzinghoffer said. The company was awarded a $43 million contract to start construction on the ship that will build on some of the first Sea Hunter’s capabilities, Leidos announced last month.

    Maybe now the diverse navy will have less collisions and groundings, since the computer will be at the helm and not some nigger who is trying to hit up on a white female sailor or a tranny sailor or a sodomite sailor instead of steering the ship.

    You would not believe the race mixing taking place on Navy ships and all US military, as it’s just what the jew wants and makes it part of their training program. They subject recruits to intensive programming to try to get white female military to jump in the rack with non-white biped detritus. I saw this first hand during Operation Desert Storm, and I was disgusted with the military and all that travel in her. The jew has done a good job promoting race mixing just like they have done In Germany and Europe.

    Our folk are in deep deep doo-doo and it’s going to take a lot of shoveling to clean the jew kosher stables and have our folk get their brains cleansed of the Talmudic tripe.
