‘The Navy continues to make a series of announcements which show that their future combat jets will include artificial intelligence, as well as the incorporation of drones and hi-tech weapons into future missions.
According to an unnamed Navy official in the latest post from U.S. Naval Institute News, “A.I is going to be huge” by 2030. Not many additional specifics were given, but the role of A.I. is currently foreseen “as a decision aid to the pilot in a way similar in concept to how advanced sensor fusion onboard jets like the F-22 and Lockheed Martin F-35 work now.”
More importantly, the post cites an Air Force summit that is being held in phases, called Air Superiority 2030 and Beyond. I have included links at the end of this chronicle to unclassified documents from this summit that highlight a future where artificial intelligence, Big Data, and The Internet of Things all converge into a pervasive war matrix that includes anti-matter, EMP, smart dust explosives, bio dispensers and directed energy weapons among others (1). Add to this documents such as Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025 and we can see the direction we are being taken over the next decade and beyond.
As you will see below, the timeline for development continues to expand, demonstrating that the U.S. military and its corporate war profiteer suppliers are certainly not planning for world peace anytime soon.
“History” was made in mid-May of last year as Northrop Grumman’s X-47B unmanned drone made its first launch at sea from the U.S.S. George H.W. Bush aircraft carrier. While the Navy says it wasn’t intended for the immediate war environment, it was heralded by the commander of the Naval Air Forces, Vice Admiral David Buss, as a monumental achievement:
Today we saw a small, but significant pixel in the future picture of our Navy as we begin integration of unmanned systems into arguably the most complex warfighting environment that exists today: the flight deck of a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier.’
