SUPER FAST stealth attack boat for the US military and Navy
 
05:43
Another great idea for the us military and us navy . This fast attack stealth boat will make a difference. GHOST is a super-cavitating surface craft which is able to achieve 900 times less hull friction compared to a conventional watercraft and is developed by US Citizens for the US Navy at no cost to the US government for providing superior protection to US service personnel. The craft was built by Juliet Marine Systems. The secrecy orders on the project were removed on 11 August 2011[1] Design The Ghost uses a gyro-stabilized dual-pontoon supercavitating hull to run at top speed through 10-foot seas. Called small waterplane-area twin-hull (SWATH), it is controlled by 22 computer-controlled underwater control surfaces. When at rest or moving slowly, the Ghost sits in the water on its centerline module. At eight knots or faster, the high-grade marine aluminum buoyant hulls lift the vessel and achieve full stability. Propulsion on the prototype is provided by T53-703 turboshaft engines, with the company planning to replace them with the General Electric T700 turboshaft. The Ghost has achieved speeds of over 30 knots, and is being tested to 50 knots. It can perform several different missions including anti-surface warfare (ASuW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW), and mine countermeasures (MCM): ASuW armament consists of the M197 20mm rotary cannon and launch tubes that expel exhaust downward between the struts of the SWATH hulls, concealing and dissipating the thermal signature of the launch for BGM-176B Griffin missiles and Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System rockets, with an electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensor and radar; an ASW version could be equipped with an EO/IR sensor, radar, sonobuoy launch tubes, a dipping sonar, and four aft-firing torpedo tubes; an MCM version could be equipped with a towing boom to lower and raise two towed mine-hunting sonars, such as the Kline 5000 or Raytheon AN/AQS-20A. The current Ghost costs $10 million per copy, is crewed by 3-5 sailors, and can be partially disassembled to fit in a C-17 Globemaster III for transport if needed. It is designed for fleet protection for navies with few blue-water needs but require a small and affordable craft in large numbers for near-shore maritime border patrol and defense missions; it is being offered to international customers including Bahrain, Qatar, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, and Singapore. High-level discussions have been held with a foreign nation interested in 25 Ghosts for a potential $300 million sale. Juliet Marine is also offering a scaled-up version of the Ghost to the U.S. Navy as part of their re-evaluation of the Littoral Combat Ship program. Plans are to build a corvette-sized Ghost of 150 ft (46 m) in length or more costing about $50 million per vessel, six times cheaper than the $300 million per-ship cost of a current Freedom-class and Independence-class littoral combat ship. One impediment to the U.S. Navy procuring the Ghost is the desire of senior Navy leaders to have large-hulled oceangoing vessels that can also perform inshore operations rather than smaller craft specialized for inshore missions.[2][3] Juliet Marine Systems is a maritime technology think tank that is developing innovative solutions for naval and commercial applications. We seek to assure fleet force protection in response to small vessel terrorist attacks against our Navy and coalition ships. There is a clear and present danger of these tactics being used against the U.S. Navy throughout the world and in our home ports. These same innovative technologies, applied to commercial needs, will provide a significant decrease in transit time and increase in energy efficiency, resulting in the savings of thousands of gallons of fuel daily. Our Navy is in a revolutionary period of change. Historic military tactics combined with modern materials and technology present a formidable fleet protection challenge for our Navy today. One of the greatest threats to our Navy is low tech vessel attacks with conventional explosives, as seen on October 12, 2000, when the USS Cole was attacked, killing 17 sailors and wounding 39 others and in the continued success of pirates. As a maritime systems think tank, Juliet Marine Systems provides offensive, defensive and ISR solutions that are developed in a skunk works operation able to rapidly invent and construct needed technologies and systems for the Navy and armed forces. We have already developed a surface variant of a super cavitating craft and are planning to apply our unique technology in a UUV prototype. While the GHOST is a surface vessel, the hydrodynamics of the twin submerged buoyant tubular foils are also a test bed for Juliet Marine's next planned prototype, a long duration UUV. The GHOST is a revolutionary proprietary technology vessel platform that will assure force protection through stealth fighter/attack capabilities along with integrated situation awareness.

The U.S. Navy Had Big Plans to Turn Battleships into "Super Killer"
 
05:48
The U.S. Navy Had Big Plans to Turn Battleships into "Super Killer" The firepower of the battleships—and their destructive range—would have increased substantially. Trading one turret for 20 Harrier jets was a pretty good deal. Add the Tomahawks and their ability to strike with precision at a thousand miles and the improvements looked even better. The resulting warship would have equaled the firepower of a Nimitz-class supercarrier.

U.S. Navy's Stealthy Mega-Destroyer Still Doesn't Have Ammunition for its Gun
 
10:40
The Navy's futuristic destroyer Zumwalt is some two years away from being ready for battle — but service leaders still don't know what to load in its main weapon. In late 2016, the service canceled plans to buy the long-range land attack projectile, or LRLAP, a round designed to be fired from the ship's massive 155 mm Advanced Gun Systems weapon. At about $800,000 per round, the ammo was just too pricey to load up on the three ships in the limited Zumwalt large destroyer class. But it's now 2018, and the ship is expected to reach initial operational capability by fiscal 2020. And there's still no substitute round for the AGS. Read more: https://goo.gl/B2fnFe

US Navy STRIKE GROUP Live Fire Weapons Test
 
04:22
Video footage featuring the Navy's evaluation of a strike group’s gun weapon systems, combat systems, and unmanned vehicles’ interoperability with surface and air assets while firing on targets at the 2016 USS Dahlgren demonstration, Aug. 30. It was the first time an entire Navy strike group was brought together in a land-based environment spanning the entire kill chain – plan, detect, control, engage and assess. “This demonstration integrated capabilities across multiple laboratories, utilizing unmanned and manned sensor platforms, engaging a hostile swarm threat of surface craft attacking a virtual naval battlegroup consisting of a Nimitz class aircraft carrier, an Aegis class cruiser and an Independence class Littoral Combat Ship,” said Neil Baron, Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) distinguished scientist for combat control. At one point, senior Navy officials – flag officers, commanding officers, and two-dozen senior executives – watched engineers fire a 30 millimeter gun on the Potomac River Test Range from their Littoral Combat Ship’s (LCS) - Surface Warfare (SUW) Mission Package Command and Control laboratory several miles away. "This event brings it all together,” said Rear Adm. Tom Druggan, NSWC commander. “We have to field systems that are a slam dunk win for the Navy. When push comes to shove, the Navy has to win. Our job is to make sure the fleet wins today and in the future.” The test – made possible by a cybernetic laboratory called USS Dahlgren – conducted engagement coordination with virtual and hardware representations of systems on the USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74), USS Bunker Hill (CG 52), and USS Independence (LCS 2) during live fire destruction of surface threats utilizing the LCS 30 millimeter, Aegis MK 46 gun system's 5-inch guns, and simulated hellfire missiles. “This has been five to six years in the making and couldn't come at a better time as we see real-world events such as the recent small boat incursions in the Middle East, highlighting the need for the Fleet,” said Capt. Brian Durant, NSWCDD commanding officer. Druggan, Durant and their counterparts watched as actual combat system equipment from the aircraft carrier and two surface combatant laboratories directed live fire on the Potomac River Test Range as fictitious surface threats attempted to attack. The live fire engagements continued throughout the scenario, demonstrating integration of currently fielded capabilities, from MH-60R and MH60S Seahawk helicopters to the Aegis Combat System and the Ship Self-Defense System with new technologies such as Virtual Automatic Scoring System.

240p Battleship USS Missouri firing her 16 Inch Main Guns. Video from shot from USS Princeton on root to Japan , Just before Desert Storm & Desert Shields. The First Shock & Awe Campaign. USS Missouri (BB-63) ("Mighty Mo" or "Big Mo") is a United States Navy Iowa-class battleship and was the third ship of the U.S. Navy to be named in honor of the US state of Missouri. Missouri was the last battleship commissioned by the United States and was the site of the surrender of the Empire of Japan which ended World War II. Missouri was ordered in 1940 and commissioned in June 1944. In the Pacific Theater of World War II she fought in the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa and shelled the Japanese home islands, and she fought in the Korean War from 1950 to 1953. She was decommissioned in 1955 into the United States Navy reserve fleets (the "Mothball Fleet"), but reactivated and modernized in 1984 as part of the 600-ship Navy plan, and provided fire support during Operation Desert Storm in January/February 1991. Missouri received a total of 11 battle stars for service in World War II, Korea, and the Persian Gulf, and was finally decommissioned on 31 March 1992, but remained on the Naval Vessel Register until her name was struck in January 1995. In 1998, she was donated to the USS Missouri Memorial Association and became a museum ship at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. These guns were 66.6 feet (20 m) long—50 times their 16-inch (406 mm) bore, or 50 calibers, from breechface to muzzle. Each gun weighed about 239,000 pounds (108,000 kg) without the breech, or 267,900 pounds (121,517 kg) with the breech.[1] They fired projectiles weighing from 1,900 to 2,700 pounds (850 to 1,200 kg) at a maximum speed of 2,690 feet per second (820 m/s) with a range of up to 24 miles (39 km). At maximum range the projectile spent almost 1½ minutes in flight.[1] Each turret required a crew of 79 men to operate.[1] The turrets themselves cost US$1.4 million each **I DON'T OWN ANYTHING, NO COPYRIGHT INTENDED** (C) All rights reserved to the artist and their production company Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.

US Navy  Deadly Rail-Gun To Be Deployed on Zumwalt Destroyers
 
04:44
US Navy Deadly Rail-Gun To Be Deployed on Zumwalt Destroyers For the past several years, the Navy has been developing the weapon, and it publicly tested one in 2014. The Navy planned to install a prototype railgun on a high-speed vessel, but the latest estimates suggest the prototyping stage could be pushed back until 2017. To avoid this unfortunate delay, Fanta proposed the idea of skipping the prototype phase and installing an operational unit on the USS Johnson, the Navy’s third and final next-generation Zumwalt-class destroyer that is slated for deployment in 2018. The railgun is different from conventional weapons, using electricity instead of an explosive material like gunpowder to fire a projectile. The railgun works by delivering a high-power electric pulse to a pair of conductive rails. This pulse creates a powerful magnetic field that accelerates the projectile out of the gun. Though it lacks the explosive power of a conventional weapon, the Navy’s railgun is not a “sissy” weapon. It can fire a 23-pound projectile over 100 miles at speeds of up to Mach 7 (roughly 1.5 miles per second). This rate of travel generates enough kinetic energy to inflict significant damage on a long-distance target. Besides being powerful, the railgun also is affordable, with railgun projectiles costing 1/100th the price of conventional missiles.

World Most Futuristic, Stealth Attack Marine Platform Designed for US Navy
 
05:43
World Most Futuristic, Stealth Attack Marine Platform Designed for US Navy GHOST is a super-cavitating stealth ship which can reduce the hull friction to 1/900th that of conventional watercraft. It was developed to provide superior protection for US service personnel. It was built by Juliet Marine Systems. It is virtually invisible to sonar and radar detection through its aluminium and stainless steel construction, making it non-magnetic, its hull angles bare a resemblance those of the F-117 Nighthawk. It can perform several types of mission including anti-surface warfare (ASuW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW), and mine countermeasures (MCM): ASuW armament consists of the M197 20mm rotary cannon and launch tubes that expel exhaust downward between the struts of the SWATH hulls, concealing and dissipating the thermal signature of the launch for BGM-176B Griffin missiles and Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System rockets, with an electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensor and radar; an ASW version could be equipped with an EO/IR sensor, radar, sonobuoy launch tubes, a dipping sonar, and four aft-firing torpedo tubes; an MCM version could be equipped with a towing boom to lower and raise two towed mine-hunting sonars, such as the Kline 5000 or Raytheon AN/AQS-20A. The current Ghost costs $10 million per copy, is crewed by 3-5 sailors, has an endurance of 3 days, and can be partially disassembled to fit in a C-17 Globemaster III for transport if needed. There is room for 16 passengers with two 6 in (15 cm)-diameter round windows in the hull. It is designed for fleet protection for navies with few blue-water needs but require a small and affordable craft in large numbers for near-shore maritime border patrol and defense missions. The Ghost uses a dual-pontoon supercavitating hull, known as the small waterplane-area twin-hull (SWATH), to run at top speed through 10 ft (3.0 m) seas. It is gyro-stabilized, control is provided by 22 underwater control surfaces. Below eight knots, the Ghost sits in the water on its centerline 38 ft (12 m)-long module; faster than this, the marine aluminum buoyant hulls lifts the main hull out of the water by two 12 ft (3.7 m)-long struts, achieving full stability and reducing the amount of area resisting the water. Each strut is attached to a 62 ft (19 m)-long underwater tube that contains the engines. Four propellers are at the front of the tubes, which is more stable and allows for better control at high speeds; the propellers funnel air down through the struts, creating a gas bubble around each tube (the cavitation effect) for reduced drag and smooth motion. Propulsion on the prototype is provided by two T53-703 turboshaft engines providing 2,000 horsepower, there are plans to later adopt the General Electric T700 turboshaft engine. Since the tubes that contain the engines, fuel, and most computing systems are underwater, this lessens vulnerability because critical systems are protected by the water itself. The aircraft-style cockpit is outfitted with large windshields fashioned from two inch-thick glass; steering is provided via a throttle and joystick arrangement. The Ghost has achieved speeds of over 30 knots, and is being tested to 50 knots.

New Navy Railgun Test Fire
 
00:43
The first weapon-scale prototype of a futuristic Navy railgun began undergoing firing tests last week, the next big step toward putting the electromagnetic superweapon on U.S. warships by 2020. The Navy envisions using railguns to destroy enemy ships, defend against enemy missiles, or bombard land targets in support of Marines hitting the beaches. Newly released video shows the prototype railgun using an electric-powered launcher rather than gunpowder to fire a huge hypersonic bullet in a cloud of flame and smoke. The Office of Naval Research hopes its new test phase — scheduled to last until 2017 — leads to a Navy weapon capable of hurling 40-pound projectiles at speeds of 4,500 mph to 5,600 mph over 50 to 100 miles (7,240 to 9,010 kilometers per hour over 80 to 161 kilometers). The full-size prototype, made by BAE Systems, "looks like a real gun," said Roger Ellis, program manager for the railgun at the Office of Naval Research, during a media teleconference today (Feb. 28). Previous tests involved clunky laboratory prototypes that would never see action aboard a Navy warship. U.S. Navy commanders ultimately want a weapon capable of firing up to 10 guided projectiles per minute at targets up to 100 miles away. Navy warships currently have 5-inch guns capable of firing at distances of 13 miles. "There is potential to replace the 5-inch gun, but it would do far more," Ellis said in response to an InnovationNewsDaily question. The railgun could hit the same distant targets that Navy missiles strike today, he said. A second railgun prototype, built by General Atomics, is set to arrive for testing in April, Ellis said. Having railguns built by different companies gives the Navy a choice if it ultimately decides to deploy the superweapon. Both General Atomics and BAE Systems committed millions of their own dollars during the first $240 million test phase, which recently ended. The newly begun Phase II is funded at about the same amount. It is testing prototypes capable of harnessing 32 megajoules of energy. Just one megajoule would be enough to throw a 1-ton car 100 mph. During the five years of Phase II, the Navy plans to test cooling systems and a battery that could store the energy required by the railgun. It has contracted with General Atomics, BAE Systems and Raytheon for designs for a pulsed power system. Because of its hypersonic speed produced by the railgun, a projectile shaped like a bullet could deliver devastating damage even without exploding. It could include electronic guidance systems such as GPS that would be protected against the immense heat of the giant bullet's hypersonic passage. "The rounds we are firing currently are non-aerodynamic slugs," Ellis said of the testing. "They match the interior ballistics of what the launcher is expected to see but are intended to slow down quickly." If all goes well, the Navy could end up equipping its ships with railguns of all different sizes. Companies such as General Atomics have already built smaller railguns for their own testing purposes. "We believe this is game-changing technology, and in our case we've invested internal funds of more than $20 million for a subscale prototype to move the technology forward," said Tom Hurn, director of railgun programs at San Diego-based General Atomics.

US NAVY SHOOTS IT'S OWN DECOMISSIONED SHIPS FOR TARGET PRACTICE!!!
 
05:51
US MILITARY USES TORPEDOES, ROCKETS, & GUNS TO SINK DECOMMISSIONED SHIPS!! PHILIPPINE SEA (NNS) -- Live fire from ships and aircraft participating in Valiant Shield 2016 sank the decommissioned USS Rentz (FFG 46) in waters 30,000 feet deep and 117 nautical miles northeast of Guam Sept. 13. Valiant Shield units, including USS Benfold (DDG 65), USS John S. McCain (DDG 56), aircraft from Carrier Air Wing Five (CVW 5), currently embarked on board the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Ronald Regan (CVN 76), a U.S. Navy P-8A Poseidon aircraft from the "Tridents" of Patrol Squadron (VP) 26, the "Yellow Jackets" of Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 138, and U.S. Marine Corps aircraft from the "Silver Eagles" of the Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VFMA) 115 participated in the event. "The SINKEX was the first CVW -5 led event in Valiant Shield, and it was a major success," said Lt. Cmdr. Alfred Del Vecchio, CVW-5 SINKEX lead planner. "Almost every planned missile shoot was successful, thanks to the hard work from the "Liberty Bells" from VAW 115, who provided range clearance for the event, to the to the Aviation Ordnance men and women that enable the weapons to work flawlessly and finally to the aircrew in the cockpits employing the ordnance. The boat sank in 5 hours after sustaining 22 missile hits, finally succumbing to hellfire missiles shots by the "Golden Falcons" of HSC 12. This event marked the first time that the "Eagles" from Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 115 successfully fired a JSOW C-1 guided gliding munition, a weapon that has not previously been used in an exercise of this nature. Former Navy vessels used in SINKEXs are prepared in strict compliance with regulations prescribed and enforced by the Environmental Protection Agency under a general permit the Navy holds pursuant to the Marine Protection, Research and Sanctuaries Act. Each SINKEX is required to sink the hulk in at least 1,000 fathoms (6,000 feet) of water and at least 50 nautical miles from land. Surveys are conducted to ensure that humans and marine mammals are not in an area where they could be harmed during the event. Prior to the vessel being transported for participation in a SINKEX, each vessel is put through a rigorous cleaning process, including the removal of all polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), transformers and large capacitors, all small capacitors to the greatest extent practical, trash, floatable materials, mercury or fluorocarbon-containing materials and readily detachable solid PCB items. Petroleum is also cleaned from tanks, piping and reservoirs. A Navy civilian environmental, safety and health manager and a quality assurance supervisor inspect the environmental remediation conducted in preparation of a vessel's use in a SINKEX. Upon completion of the environmental remediation, the manager and supervisor provide signed certification of the work in accordance with EPA requirements. Decommissioned USS Rentz was the 46th ship of the Oliver Hazard Perry-class guided-missile frigates, named after Chaplain George Snavely Rentz, who selflessly gave his life at the Battle of Coral Sea. Rentz gave his life jacket to a fellow Sailor after his ship, USS Houston (CA 30), was hit by enemy torpedoes and sunk. Rentz was commissioned June 30, 1984 and originally homeported in San Diego, California, December 1985. During her more than 30 year career, the ship was part of a historic port visit in November 1986 to Qingdao, China, the first U.S. Naval visit to China since 1949. Rentz was sent to the Persian Gulf as part of Operation Earnest Will and deployed with the Nimitz carrier strike group. Rentz also conducted counter narcotics operations, among other missions. Valiant Shield 2016 is a biennial, U.S.-only, field training exercise (FTX) with a focus on integration of joint training among U.S. forces in relation to current operational plans. This training enables real-world proficiency in sustaining joint forces through detecting, locating, tracking and engaging units at sea, in the air, on land, and in cyberspace in response to a range of mission areas.

CHINA'S NEW DESTROYER AND THE U.S. NAVY'S ANTI-SHIP MISSILE FAILURE || WARTHOG 2017
 
09:04
China unveiled its Type 055 naval destroyer on June 28, the latest step in its decade and a half of military buildup. The new Chinese destroyer outcompetes U.S. destroyers and cruisers, highlighting a major failure in U.S. Navy planning that stretches back to the 1990s. Given the 055’s long-range supersonic YJ-18 and YJ-12 over the horizon (OTH) anti-ship cruise missiles (ASCMs), the Chinese destroyer currently outcompetes U.S. Arleigh Burke class destroyers and bigger Ticonderoga class cruisers.

The weapon of the future is here. The U.S. Navy released a test fire video Tuesday of its new electromagnetic railgun, a weapon military officials have long heralded as the height of "Star Wars" technology. It can destroy heavily armored targets at a range of up to 125 miles without requiring a massive stockpile of ammunition.

US Navy’s $4.4 Billion Battleship Gigantic Destroyer is ‘Nearly Invisible’

Thanks for watching! Give this video a thumbs up if you enjoyed it and please SUBSCRIBE for new videos! ★ Subsribe: http://bit.ly/DocumentaryLibs ★ Facebook: http://bit.ly/DocumentaryLibsFB The next generation 610-foot destroyer, the largest in the US fleet, appears as little more than a 50-foot vessel on radar making the behemoth nearly undetectable to adversaries until it is too late. On Sunday, the US Navy announced that, after a long wait, it will unveil its most technologically-advanced warship to date, the USS Zumwalt. The vessel, developed in Maine’s Bath Iron Works shipyard, will be the largest destroyer ever built for the US Navy. The $4.4 billion ship will depart later this week, commanded by US Navy Captain James Kirk. The USS Zumwalt was initially slated to be ready in September 2013, but technical challenges delayed the destroyer’s christening by almost three years. "The Zumwalt was a challenge to assemble because of all the new technologies," explained senior defense analyst Loren Thompson of the Lexington Institute, "but sea trials show it is a world-class warship with unique capabilities." Jay Wadleigh, president of the shipyard union, says that the long wait will be worth it, stating that the Navy picked the Bath Iron Works shipyard because "they knew the job would be done right." "I think the way the Zumwalt performed on the three different sea trials was better than anybody expected – us, the Navy and the company," said Wadleigh. So what does $4.4 billion buy you? The next generation destroyer stretches 610 feet at the waterline, with a unique angular design that makes it 50 times more difficult for radar to detect its presence at sea. The destroyer not only can avoid detection on the high seas, but it is also arguably the most deadly battleship in the US fleet. The USS Zumwalt comes with firing cannons that can hit sea or land targets over 100 miles away. The high speed destroyer is powered by turbines inspired by the Boeing 777 airplane and is claimed to be able to top 35 mph. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the new destroyer is that its functions are largely automated, and the ship requires a crew of only 140.

China said to be Developing ‘Arsenal Warship’ Proposed by US Navy
 
02:35
China said to be Developing ‘Arsenal Warship’ Proposed by US Navy The fantastic "arsenal ship" -- a surface warship packed with as many as 500 missiles almost built by the U.S. Navy two decades ago -- is allegedly being considered for development by China. The Chinese have put one twist in their concept for an arsenal ship, however. They intend their version of the arsenal ship to be a massive "submersible," which is a vessel that can submerge but spends most of its time on the surface. _________________________________________________________________________________________________ Thank You For Watching..... -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Site : https://worldofweapon.wordpress.com Facebook : http://www.facebook.com/worldofweapon16 Twitter : https://twitter.com/worldofweapon VK.com : https://vk.com/vk.worldofweapon Myspace : https://myspace.com/worldofweapon Tags::-- us navy, navy, ocean, military, warship, boat, united states, assault ship, killer tomato, navy ship collision, educational video, us naval power, us navy in action, us navy live fire exercise, us navy show of force, m242 bushmaster, browning machine gun, browning .50 caliber machine gun, m2 machine gun, mk 38 bushmaster 25mm auto cannon, amphibious assault ship, 5th fleet, worlddoc1, uss bataan, lhd 5, nrtc, navy recruit training center, boot camp, kayaking with killer whales, kayaking fails, kayaking extreme, kayaking for beginners, kayaking, family friendly, navy ship battle, navy ship attack, navy ships firing missiles, navy ship vs lighthouse, pirate documentary, navy ship life news, navy, chinese navy, usa, aircraft carrier, china, cctvnews, politics, china navy, military, breaking, missile, military drill, technology, rocket, submarine, south china sea, weapon, f-18, china navy vs us, chinese navy vs us, chinese vs united navy, donald trump, trump, china warns us warship, south china sea conflicts, us airforce, ah-64, f-15, flying, stealth, raaf, royal air force, china vs us navy, air to air, air combat, mig-35, mig-29, mikoyan, f-35 aircraft carrier, news, military, cctvnews, china, chinese navy, politics, type 001a, china aircraft carrier, cctv, breaking, youtube, ntdchinauncensored, issue, culture, song, arirangtv, kpop, china uncensored, vod, korean, korea, tv, arirang, pla navy, new aircraft carrier, navy india, indian navy ships, indian navy in, indian navy, indian economy vs chinese economy, indian carrier, indian aircraft carrier latest news, indian aircraft carrier, india vs china, chinese navy ships, chinese navy news, chinese carrier, chinese aircraft carrier, chinese aircraft education, soundtrack, weapons, donald trump, ratchet, and, clank, navy, theme, ost, united states navy (armed force), video, music, ship, news, original, wikileaks, msnbc, warship, war, bergeaud, david, nefarious, qwark, captain, track, sound, clinton, score, song, sony, playstation, game, insomniac, station, play, arsenal, your, up, three china, military, chinese army, news, army, gun, tank, arms, pla, chinese navy, airforce, us navy, usa, missile, military drill, navy, chinese military, technology, rocket, rifle, aircraft carrier, future weapons, aerospace, us, the pentagon, frigate, united states navy, naval, sailor, artillery, american, ship, missile boat, submarine, fleet, sea, shipping, boat, boat show, watercraft

Navy releases railgun test fire video
 
01:19
Contact inquiries@nextanimation.com to license this or any News Direct video For story suggestions please contact tips@nextanimation.com.tw RESTRICTIONS: NONE The U.S. Navy recently released footage of its electromagnetic railgun test fire that was carried out in November 2016. The test was performed at Dahlgren naval facility’s new Terminal Range in Virginia, Popular Mechanics reported. Using an electromagnetic force known as the Lorentz Force, magnetic fields created by high electrical currents accelerate a sliding metal conductor, or armature, between two rails to launch projectiles at speeds of over 4,500 mph, according to the Office of Naval Research website. Railguns require 20 to 32 megajoules of energy to launch projectiles 50 to 100 nautical miles, according to a Congressional Research Service report. The projectile is a non-explosive shell filled with tungsten pellets inside an aluminum alloy casing that falls away after the projectile leaves the barrel, according to Popular Mechanics. Targets are then destroyed by kinetic force. “Using its extreme speed on impact, the kinetic energy warhead eliminates the hazards of high explosives in the ship and unexploded ordnance on the battlefield,” the Office of Naval Research website explains. Railguns also eliminate the need for chemical propellants such as gunpowder meaning they could potentially operate much cheaper and fire faster than current Naval weaponry. RUNDOWN SHOWS: 1. The railgun 2. The power source, the parallel rails and the armature 3. An electric pulse being sent up the positive rail, through the armature and down the negative rail 4. The electric loop induces a magnetic field around the rails, that exerts a force on the projectile 5. The railgun firing a projectile at 4,500 mph 6. The aluminum casing falling off a projectile as it leaves the barrel of the railgun 7. The range of the railgun 8. The projectile destroying a land based target VOICEOVER (in English): “The U.S. Navy recently released test fire footage from November 2016 of its electromagnetic railgun.” “A railgun is comprised of three parts: a power source, a pair of parallel rails and a moving armature.” “An electrical pulse is sent from the positive terminal of the power supply, up the positive rail, across the armature and down the negative rail back to the power supply.” “The loop induces a magnetic field around each rail that pushes on the projectile. This force is the Lorentz Force.” “Using this force, railguns can fire projectiles at speeds of over 4,500 mph.” “The projectile is a non-explosive shell filled with tungsten pellets inside an aluminum alloy casing. The casing falls away after the projectile leaves the barrel.” “Railguns require 20 to 32 megajoules of energy and can hit fixed targets up to 220 miles away.” "Targets are then destroyed by the projectile’s massive kinetic force.” SOURCES: Congressional Research Service report, Popular Mechanics, Office of Naval Research, Business Insider https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3521806-Navy-Lasers-Railgun-and-Hypervelocity-Projectile.html#document/p19 https://www.onr.navy.mil/en/Media-Center/Fact-Sheets/Electromagnetic-Railgun http://www.businessinsider.com/us-navy-electromagnetic-railgun-2017-3 http://www.popularmechanics.com/military/weapons/a25759/electromagnetic-cannon-railgun-test-fire-commissioning-series/ http://www.popularmechanics.com/military/weapons/a21174/navy-electromagnetic-railgun/ *** For story suggestions please contact tips@nextanimation.com.tw For technical and editorial support, please contact: Asia: +61 2 93 73 1841 Europe: +44 20 7542 7599 Americas and Latam: +1 800 738 8377 ----------------------------------------­­---------------------------------------­-­---------------- Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

US Navy drone puts live-fire missile test on target
 
03:10
In a taste of things to come, an unmanned MQ-8B Fire Scout has provided tracking data for a Harpoon Block 1C missile fired from the Littoral Combat Ship USS Coronado (LCS 4), helping it reach its target a "significant distance" over the ship's visual horizon. The live-fire exercise took place on August 22 off the coast of Guam during which the drone rotorcraft worked in conjunction with an MH-60S Seahawk helicopter. As drones and other robotic devices become more capable and numerous, the part they play in the armed forces becomes more significant. Already fifth-generation fighter aircraft like the F-35 Lightning II are seen less as direct combatants than as command and control platforms, and even manned submarines may one day be relegated to coordinating drone fleets of underwater warriors.

Featuring voice overs by Donald Crisp, Henry Fonda, and Jane Darwell, the film includes material shot by Ford himself during the Japanese bombardment of Midway. John Ford's handheld, 16mm footage of the battle was captured totally impromptu. He had been in transit on the island, roused from his bunk by the sounds of the battle, picked up his camera and began shooting. Ford was wounded by shrapnel from a Japanese bomb while filming. Featured in the film are many things of note, including operations of PBY Catalina flying boats as scout aircraft and to recover downed pilots, shots of the B-17s which operated off Midway during the battle, and the assault on Midway itself. At sea, the film shows the American aircraft carrier forces conducting flight operations and defending against Japanese aircraft.'

Between 4 and 7 June 1942, only six months after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor, and one month after the Battle of the Coral Sea, the United States Navy decisively defeated an Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) attack against Midway Atoll, inflicting irreparable damage on the Japanese fleet. Military historian John Keegan has called it "the most stunning and decisive blow in the history of naval warfare." The Japanese operation, like the earlier attack on Pearl Harbor, sought to eliminate the United States as a strategic power in the Pacific, thereby giving Japan a free hand in establishing its Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. The Japanese hoped that another demoralizing defeat would force the U.S. to capitulate in the Pacific War. The Japanese plan was to lure the United States' aircraft carriers into a trap. The Japanese also intended to occupy Midway Atoll as part of an overall plan to extend their defensive perimeter in response to the Doolittle Raid. This operation was also considered preparatory for further attacks against Fiji and Samoa. The plan was handicapped by faulty Japanese assumptions of the American reaction and poor initial dispositions. Most significantly, American codebreakers were able to determine the date and location of the attack, enabling the forewarned U.S. Navy to set up an ambush of its own. Four Japanese aircraft carriers and a heavy cruiser were sunk for a cost of one American aircraft carrier and a destroyer. After Midway, and the exhausting attrition of the Solomon Islands campaign, Japan's shipbuilding and pilot training programs were unable to keep pace in replacing their losses while the U.S. steadily increased its output in both areas... Yamamoto's plan, Operation Mai Typical of Japanese naval planning during World War II, Yamamoto's battle plan was exceedingly complex. Additionally, his design was predicated on optimistic intelligence suggesting USS Enterprise and USS Hornet, forming Task Force 16, were the only carriers available to the U.S. Pacific Fleet at the time. At the Battle of the Coral Sea just a month earlier, USS Lexington had been sunk and USS Yorktown damaged severely enough that the Japanese believed her also to have been sunk. The Japanese were also aware that USS Saratoga was undergoing repairs on the West Coast after suffering torpedo damage from a submarine. However, more important was Yamamoto's belief the Americans had been demoralized by their frequent defeats during the preceding six months. Yamamoto felt deception would be required to lure the U.S. fleet into a fatally compromised situation. To this end, he dispersed his forces so that their full extent (particularly his battleships) would be unlikely to be discovered by the Americans prior to battle. Critically, Yamamoto's supporting battleships and cruisers would trail Vice-Admiral Nagumo Chūichi's carrier striking force by several hundred miles... Yamamoto did not know that the U.S. had broken the main Japanese naval code (dubbed JN-25 by the Americans)...

Noteworthy: These elite soldiers are wearing the latest VBSS body-armour/load-bearing vests introduced into the PLAN. The VBSS personal armour is a CIRAS (Combat Integrated Releasable Armor System) -type body armour, integrating the load-bearing rig part and the kevlar/hard-plate part with a quick release feature, that allows all armour and combat-load elements to be quickly and easily detached. This feature is especially handy if the operator falls into water during dangerous bording missions and could thus save his life by quickly detaching all weight from his body to swim to the surface. The VBSS armour system is a real life-saver and a critical addition for the effectiveness of the PLAN Marine Special Forces.

HOW USA PLANS TO DEFEAT  RUSSIAN &  CHINESE STEALTH FIGHTERS? : TOP 5 FACTS
 
05:22
INTRODUCTION: Unlike a decade ago, United States is no longer the sole designer of stealth fighters. Russia and China has taken concrete steps in this direction. Chinese Chengdu J-20 has some stealth features, and Shenyang J-31 has been designed from grounds up keeping in mind stealth characteristics. Russian PAK F A is considered to be most potent competitor against F 35 and F 22 Raptor. The aircraft will be the first operational aircraft in Russian service to use stealth technology. On the other side of the table, the Russian S 400 and upcoming S 500 Air Defense System is known to have radars cable of detecting stealthy aircrafts. In this video, Defense Updates provides viewers with an insight on how USA intends to nullify the Russian and Chinese stealth technology.     TECHNOLOGY: It is the physics of longer wavelength and resonance that enables Very High Frequency (VHF) and Ultra High Frequency (UHF) radar to detect stealth aircraft. UHF-band radars operate at frequencies between 300MHz and 1GHz, which results in wavelengths that are between 10 centimeters and one meter long. Typically, due to the physical characteristics of fighter-sized stealth aircraft, they must be optimized to defeat higher frequencies in the K a, K u, X, C and parts of the S-bands. There is a resonance effect that occurs when a feature on an aircraft—such as a tail-fin tip— is less than eight times the size of a particular frequency wavelength. That omnidirectional resonance effect produces a “step change” in an aircraft’s radar cross-section. Effectively what that means is that small stealth aircraft that do not have the size or weight allowances for two feet or more of radar absorbent material coatings on every surface, are forced to make trades as to which frequency bands they are optimized for.   NEW RADAR: Till now VHF & UHF radars could not generate a “weapons quality” track—or in other words, are unable to guide a missile onto a target. Poor resolution in angle and range, has historically prevented these radars from providing accurate targeting and fire control.   However, electronic scanning and new signal processing techniques have mitigated those shortcomings to an extent. And there are other techniques in development, such as linking multiple low-frequency radars via high-speed datalinks, which is enabling those radars to generate weapons quality tracks. The Lockheed Martin E-2D Advanced Hawkeye’s central feature is the APY-9 UHF-band radar. The radar is powerful hybrid mechanical/electronically scanned UHF-band sensor.   FIRE CONTROL—COUNTER AIR (NIFC-CA) BATTLE NETWORK   The radar will be able to tie into the U.S. Navy’s state-of-the-art Naval Integrated Fire Control—Counter Air (NIFC-CA) battle network and will operate in two ways: 1. From the Air: APY-9 radar would act as a sensor to cue Raytheon Aim 1 2 0 air-to-air missiles for Boeing F 18 Super Hornets and F 35 fighters via datalink. 2. From the Sea: The APY-9 would also act as a sensor to guide Raytheon Standard SM-6 missiles launched from Aegis cruisers and destroyers against targets. In fact, the US Navy has demonstrated missile shots using the E-2D’s radar to guide SM-6 missiles against over-the-horizon targets—which by definition means the APY-9 is generating a weapons quality track.   CONCLUSION: The technology would be able to detect aircrafts like the Chengdu J-20, Shenyang J-31, Sukhoi PAK-F A, and indeed the United States’ own Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor and tri-service F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Only very large stealth aircraft without protruding surfaces — like the Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit or the forthcoming Long Range Strike-Bomber — will be able to defeat this radar. USA having been in the forefront of stealth technology implementation, is continuing to work towards maintaining an edge over its rivals in this technology.

The US Navy's radical plan to create a railgun capable of firing bullets at hypersonic speed could also revolutionise power storage technology, researchers have revealed. The Office of Naval Research is developing its own 'supercapacitors' to store the huge amounts of power needed to propel the projectiles onboard ships. Early trials used commercially available systems.

SUPER ADVANCED attack boat for the US military and Navy
 
02:28
Another great idea for the us military and us navy . This fast attack stealth boat will make a difference. GHOST is a super-cavitating surface craft which is able to achieve 900 times less hull friction compared to a conventional watercraft and is developed by US Citizens for the US Navy at no cost to the US government for providing superior protection to US service personnel. The craft was built by Juliet Marine Systems. The secrecy orders on the project were removed on 11 August 2011[1] Design The Ghost uses a gyro-stabilized dual-pontoon supercavitating hull to run at top speed through 10-foot seas. Called small waterplane-area twin-hull (SWATH), it is controlled by 22 computer-controlled underwater control surfaces. When at rest or moving slowly, the Ghost sits in the water on its centerline module. At eight knots or faster, the high-grade marine aluminum buoyant hulls lift the vessel and achieve full stability. Propulsion on the prototype is provided by T53-703 turboshaft engines, with the company planning to replace them with the General Electric T700 turboshaft. The Ghost has achieved speeds of over 30 knots, and is being tested to 50 knots. It can perform several different missions including anti-surface warfare (ASuW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW), and mine countermeasures (MCM): ASuW armament consists of the M197 20mm rotary cannon and launch tubes that expel exhaust downward between the struts of the SWATH hulls, concealing and dissipating the thermal signature of the launch for BGM-176B Griffin missiles and Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System rockets, with an electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensor and radar; an ASW version could be equipped with an EO/IR sensor, radar, sonobuoy launch tubes, a dipping sonar, and four aft-firing torpedo tubes; an MCM version could be equipped with a towing boom to lower and raise two towed mine-hunting sonars, such as the Kline 5000 or Raytheon AN/AQS-20A. The current Ghost costs $10 million per copy, is crewed by 3-5 sailors, and can be partially disassembled to fit in a C-17 Globemaster III for transport if needed. It is designed for fleet protection for navies with few blue-water needs but require a small and affordable craft in large numbers for near-shore maritime border patrol and defense missions; it is being offered to international customers including Bahrain, Qatar, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, and Singapore. High-level discussions have been held with a foreign nation interested in 25 Ghosts for a potential $300 million sale. Juliet Marine is also offering a scaled-up version of the Ghost to the U.S. Navy as part of their re-evaluation of the Littoral Combat Ship program. Plans are to build a corvette-sized Ghost of 150 ft (46 m) in length or more costing about $50 million per vessel, six times cheaper than the $300 million per-ship cost of a current Freedom-class and Independence-class littoral combat ship. One impediment to the U.S. Navy procuring the Ghost is the desire of senior Navy leaders to have large-hulled oceangoing vessels that can also perform inshore operations rather than smaller craft specialized for inshore missions.[2][3] Juliet Marine Systems is a maritime technology think tank that is developing innovative solutions for naval and commercial applications. We seek to assure fleet force protection in response to small vessel terrorist attacks against our Navy and coalition ships. There is a clear and present danger of these tactics being used against the U.S. Navy throughout the world and in our home ports. These same innovative technologies, applied to commercial needs, will provide a significant decrease in transit time and increase in energy efficiency, resulting in the savings of thousands of gallons of fuel daily. Our Navy is in a revolutionary period of change. Historic military tactics combined with modern materials and technology present a formidable fleet protection challenge for our Navy today. One of the greatest threats to our Navy is low tech vessel attacks with conventional explosives, as seen on October 12, 2000, when the USS Cole was attacked, killing 17 sailors and wounding 39 others and in the continued success of pirates. As a maritime systems think tank, Juliet Marine Systems provides offensive, defensive and ISR solutions that are developed in a skunk works operation able to rapidly invent and construct needed technologies and systems for the Navy and armed forces. We have already developed a surface variant of a super cavitating craft and are planning to apply our unique technology in a UUV prototype. While the GHOST is a surface vessel, the hydrodynamics of the twin submerged buoyant tubular foils are also a test bed for Juliet Marine's next planned prototype, a long duration UUV. The GHOST is a revolutionary proprietary technology vessel platform that will assure force protection through stealth fighter/attack capabilities along with integrated situation awareness.

U.S. Military's Most Powerful Cannon - Electromagnetic Railgun - Shoots 100 miles - Mach 7
 
07:42
The U.S. Navy is tapping the power of the Force (of Star Wars fame) to wage war. Its latest weapon is an electromagnetic railgun launcher. It uses a form of electromagnetic energy known as the Lorentz force to hurl a 23-pound projectile at speeds exceeding Mach 7. Engineers already have tested this futuristic weapon on land, and the Navy plans to begin sea trials aboard a Joint High Speed Vessel Millinocket in 2016. “The electromagnetic railgun represents an incredible new offensive capability for the U.S. Navy,” Rear Adm. Bryant Fuller, the Navy’s chief engineer, said in a statement. “This capability will allow us to effectively counter a wide range of threats at a relatively low cost, while keeping our ships and sailors safer by removing the need to carry as many high-explosive weapons.” The massive railgun that needs just one sailor to operate it relies on the electromagnetic energy of the Lorentz force—the combination of electric and magnetic forces on a point charge—for power. The Navy likes the weapon for several reasons, not the least of which it has a range of 100 miles and doesn’t require explosive warheads. That makes it far safer for sailors, and cheaper for taxpayers. According to the Navy, each 18-inch projectile costs about $25,000, compared to $500,000 to $1.5 million for conventional missiles. “[It] will give our adversaries a huge moment of pause to go: ‘Do I even want to go engage a naval ship?’” Rear Admiral Matt Klunder told reporters. “Because you are going to lose. You could throw anything at us, frankly, and the fact that we now can shoot a number of these rounds at a very affordable cost, it’s my opinion that they don’t win.” The Navy’s been talking about using railguns for the past ten years. The Office of Naval Research launched a prototype program in 2005, with an initial investment of $250 million committed through 2011. The Navy anticipates spending about that much more by 2017. Of course the Army is interested in having one too, and the Pentagon is in general interested in many aspects of the technology. In July, the Navy will display the electromagnetic railgun prototype at San Diego Naval Base. “Frankly, we think it might be the right time for them to know what we’ve been doing behind closed doors in a Star Wars fashion,” said Klunder. “It’s now reality. It’s not science fiction. It’s real and you can look at it.”

Battleship Guns: "16 Inch Gun & Turret" 1955 US Navy Training Film for Iowa Class Battleships

NEW VERSION with improved video & sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvDyice4u-U more at http://quickfound.net/links/military_news_and_links.html US Navy Training Film MN-9321c Public domain film from the US Navy, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/16_inch_(406_mm)/50_caliber_Mark_7_naval_gun The 16"/50 caliber Mark 7 -- United States Naval Gun is the main armament of the Iowa-class battleships. These guns were 66 feet (20 m) long—50 times their 16-inch (406 mm) bore, or 50 calibers, from breechface to muzzle. Each gun weighed about 239,000 pounds (108,000 kg) without the breech, or 267,900 pounds (121,517 kg) with the breech.[1] They fired projectiles weighing from 1,900 to 2,700 pounds (850 to 1,200 kg) at a maximum speed of 2,690 feet per second (820 m/s) with a range of up to 24 miles (39 km). At maximum range the projectile spent almost 1½ minutes in flight. Each turret required a crew of 94 men to operate. The turrets themselves cost US$1.4 million each, to which the cost of the guns had to be added. The turrets were "three-gun", not "triple", because each barrel could be elevated and fired independently. The ships could fire any combination of their guns, including a broadside of all nine. Considering the large mass of the ship, compared to the mass of the projectiles, the ships barely moved sideways at all, even when a full broadside was fired. With the damping effect of the water around the hull it seems that the pressure wave generated by the gunfire was felt much more than the very slight change in lateral velocity. The guns could be elevated from −5 degrees to +45 degrees, moving at up to 12 degrees per second. The turrets could rotate about 300 degrees at about 4 degrees per second and could even be fired back beyond the beam, which is sometimes called "over the shoulder". Within each turret, a red stripe on the wall of the turret, just inches from the railing, marked the boundary of the gun's recoil, providing the crew of each gun turret with a visual reference for the minimum safe distance range. Complementing the 16"/50 caliber Mark 7 gun was a fire control computer, in this case the Ford Instrument Company Mark 8 Range Keeper. This analog computer was used to direct the fire from the battleship's big guns, taking into account several factors such as the speed of the targeted ship, the time it takes for a projectile to travel, and air resistance to the shells fired at a target. At the time the Montana class was set to begin construction, the rangekeepers had gained the ability to use radar data to help target enemy ships and land-based targets. The results of this advance were telling: the rangekeeper was able to track and fire at targets at a greater range and with increased accuracy. This gave the US Navy a major advantage in World War II, as the Japanese did not develop radar or automated fire control to the level of the US Navy. The Mark 7 gun was originally intended to fire the relatively light 2,240-pound (1,020 kg) Mark 5 armor-piercing shell. However, the shell-handling system for these guns was redesigned to use the "super-heavy" 2,700-pound (1,200 kg) APC (Armor Piercing, Capped) Mark 8 shell before any of the Iowa-class battleships were laid down. The large caliber guns were designed to fire two different 16 in (406 mm) shells: an armor piercing round for anti-ship and anti-structure work, and a high explosive round designed for use against unarmored targets and shore bombardment... The propellant consists of small cylindrical grains of smokeless powder with an extremely high burning rate. A maximum charge consists of six silk bags, each filled with 110 pounds of propellant...
