Navy Integrates Weapon Systems with Unmanned Vehicles for New Surface Warfare Capability
October 2, 2014
A Scan Eagle unmanned aerial vehicle launches from the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) Potomac River Test Range during a surface warfare integration test featuring the virtual USS Dahlgren. Scan Eagle identified, targeted, engaged and supported reengagement throughout the experiment as the NSWCDD-patented Visual Automatic Scoring System sent gun targeting corrections to the MK160 gun weapon system operator. "USS Dahlgren is empowering our integration of unmanned air and surface vehicles into the fire-control-loop for greatly expanded battle space and increased reaction times," said Neil Baron, NSWCDD distinguished scientist for combat control.
