    US Fears Russia Building Drone Sub That Can Blow Up American Coastal Cities''

    Cheap hysteria-generating propaganda.   As if Russia's maneuverable warheads can be intercepted by any ABM the use has deployed.
    We are back to the 1950s and soon poor, dear US children will be hiding under desks.

    US is developing prompt global strike - so relying on ICBMs is also risky, enough number can be disabled before launching retaliatory strike combined with ABMs can make Russia's response in area of "acceptable damage". Then we get to 3 WW.

    Besides maintenance costs of  hundreds of applied missiles. No this subs is kinda equivalent of nuked cruise missiles in Germany, Poland or Latvia. And yes when US kids will spend more time under tables maybe they learn to value peace more then today when US seems to be safe-heaven .








    S-500 will enter service well before US actually achieve its dream of PGS. usa sole weapon for PGS are those hypersonic gliders and darpa glider failed all the tests so far.

    I am not seeing the overwhelming effect of PGS on Russia's ICBMs. Much like any first strike attempt, it requires that Russia's defense systems
    and command and control be compromised in a catastrophic way that it cannot launch in the 30 minute window before US warheads reach their
    targets.

    Roving robotic mines are a security measure that makes the US elites stain their undies. Even if they could somehow infiltrate Russia
    and sabotage its counterstrike capacity, these drones would impose very high costs on Washington and its imperial ambitions. The US
    hysterics over such systems simply confirms this thesis.

    Russia Develops New Hybrid Warfare Drone System

    Russia's defense industry has developed a new drone system which allows direct control from command points to enhance 'network-centric warfare' capabilities.

    Russia's newest unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are to be equipped with a new system adapted to 'hybrid warfare' that has been developed by Rostec's United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (OPK), the company's general director Sergei Sokov told RIA Novosti.

    The new system allows for an exchange of information between command posts and individual UAVs in real time without a ground-based intermediary, allowing for a quicker response time, according to Sokov. The new system is being implemented on the Korsar reconnaissance UAV currently undergoing flight tests.

    "OPK has completed work on on-board radio-electronic equipment created in the spirit of the context of 'network-centric warfare.' This innovative system is a base for building unmanned aerial vehicles, which could be integrated int modern automated battle control systems," Sokov told RIA Novosti at the Ministry of Defense Innovation Day expo.

    Sokov added that the system includes an unplatformed inertial navigation system, an onboard recording system and a software-defined radio system. The onboard radio-electronic equipment developed by OPK is universal and can be installed on any type of UAV.

    Network-centric warfare is a military doctrine oriented toward elevating military capability through information and communications dominance and unifying battle participants into a single network. The doctrine is considered to be part of what is called hybrid warfare.

    US Navy Plans To Deploy A Submarine Drone Squadron By 2020

    Someone is playing catch up games Wink




    The highly autonomous underwater vehicles could be sent to scout ahead of attack submarines, or to guard valuable undersea targets.

    The U.S. Navy plans to deploy a squadron of underwater drones within the next four years, including the Large Displacement Unmanned Underwater Vehicle, or LDUUV, a 10-foot, highly autonomous, and very, very yellow subdrone, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus said today.

    It’s not yet clear just what missions will be performed by the LDUUV, which resembles a giant robot canary fish crossed with a sausage. Some Navy watchers expect it to boost attack submarines’ intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities, but officials with the Office of Naval Research pushed back against such speculation. “Right now, it’s just an empty platform with some innovative power production things that will help increase its endurance,” one official said.

    Mabus made the announcement at Tuesday’s AUVSI Unmanned Systems Defense 2015 conference, the day after the New York Times reported on Pentagon concerns about Russian submarine movements near critical undersea data cables.

    Rear Adm. Mat Winter, the chief of U.S. Naval Research, unveiled the giant yellow submersible in April at the Navy League’s Sea, Air, Space expo. At the time, Winter underscored the Navy’s need for an unmanned, underwater vehicle will be able to deploy for weeks, months, and years.

    “I am continuously amazed with the underwater breakthrough technologies in power, power generation, and navigation and sense and avoid,” Winter said. “When people say, ‘I can’t see that happening. There’s no way that can be,’ I say, ‘Excellent! Put that on ONR’s list.’”

    Looks like the Navy has done just that. The ONR official said that Mabus’s announcement came as a “surprise,” but that it was something that they “had been working toward.”

    Mabus said the LDUUV would help the Navy develop “increased subsurface endurance and autonomy” — read that to mean subdrones that can operate with minimal human intervention close to vital areas and targets. The LDUUV currently has an undersea endurance of 30 days but the eventual goal is to stretch that to years. (Original builder specifications can be found here.)

    “These systems are affordable and rapidly deployable worldwide. They’ve already been operational and served as critical enablers and game-changers for mine-hunting missions, such as those that will be conducted aboard [littoral combat ship]. We plan to deploy LDUUV from an exclusively UUV squadron on an independent mission by 2020,” the secretary said.

    Next spring, the LDUUV is scheduled to demonstrate its open-ocean navigation abilities by sailing from San Francisco to San Diego.

    Down Bubble! Russian Navy Mulls Futuristic Nuclear Robot Sub

    The Russian Navy is mulling the creation of robotic nuclear submarines, Lenta.ru news portal reported citing a defense industry source in Moscow.

    “We spent twenty years using the Lira (Project 705) subs during the 1970s through 1990s… It was a very promising project but it was eventually shelved due to the abundance of new technological ideas simultaneously implemented in one boat,” Lenta.ru quoted the unnamed source as saying.

    According to the specialist, the Soviet Project 705 submarines never really happened because they were too hi-tech to service.

    Even though their crews were cut down to just 32 hands (compared with 70 on similar class subs) and that none of them ever suffered any mishap, technologically they were not safe enough.

    Project 705 was a real breakthrough using a revolutionary liquid-metal-core reactor, featuring a very high degree of automation and boasting a titanium hull.

    Building such submarines today is no longer a priority though, as the future belongs to robotic subs with a normal displacement.

    “The crew of such a sub could be down to 50 or 55 people and could ultimately be reduced to between 30 and 40,” the source said.

    Russia to develop subsea robots for drilling operations in Arctic

    Russia plans to tap Arctic fields using marine robots, which will be part of under-ice and subsea drilling system

    MOSCOW, June 8. /TASS/. Russia’s Rubin Design Bureau is developing a preliminary design of unmanned submersibles to support construction and operation of drilling facilities in the Arctic Region, General Designer of Rubin Igor Vilnit told TASS on Wednesday.

    These vehicles will be part of under-ice and subsea drilling system, Vilnit said.

    "Subsea vehicles developed as part of the project are planned to perform exploration and survey work on the soil and in depth of the ocean as required during the drilling facility construction and will support safety during its operation," he added.

    A subsea robotized system for security of the Arctic sea and offshore areas is under development in Russia, Vilnit said

    "An integrated robotized system intended for security of lengthy sea areas and continental shelf areas is at the proactive development phase," Vilnit said.

    Russia plans to tap Arctic fields using marine robots, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said earlier.

    From Rubin´s yearly report for 2015


    A wide range of tasks for the development of the World ocean contributes to the growing interest in the creation of a specialized marine equipment. One of the most intensively developing trends in this area the creation of robotic systems and systems based on unmanned underwater vehicles for the solution search, inspection, research and many other tasks. In a relatively short period from the beginning of the design Bureau of advanced robotic systems Autonomous underwater vehicles, we performed a large amount of work in various areas. Created complex mobile Autonomous underwater vehicle "Juno", designed to perform survey and search missions. The main feature of this complex is its mobility, allowing it to carry out its operational application in the required area. Simultaneously with the complex AUV "Juno", a complex of Autonomous underwater vehicle "Kalvesin-2R-PM" with increased autonomy and the depth of immersion. This complex in addition to performing surveillance and search functions solves the problem of the research study of the World ocean in the deep sea. A prototype AUV "Harpsichord-2R-PM" at the present time is manufactured and goes through the stage of preliminary tests.

    In the active phase of creation is more complex robotic system, designed to protect a stretch of sea areas and of areas of the continental shelf. Another perspective for the Bureau of direction is the integration of remotely operated underwater vehicles.

    Russian submarine rescue successfully tested

    "Apparatus of this class, the Russian Navy plans to use in search and rescue operations, particularly for search and inspection of emergency submarines. In addition, the device can be used to install sonar markers and lifting of items seized manipulator", - the press service of the defense Ministry.

    "Marlin 350" is equipped with six thrusters, four horizontal and located at the vector diagram. Thanks to the original technical solution of control system construction, and the use of modern element base, the unit is easy to move under water. It can also rotate on one spot and quickly pull back.




    To communicate underwater and surface module applies an opto-electrical cable. The data transmission system is constructed in such a way that allows you to connect a variety of additional sensors and special equipment for underwater work and search.

    When conducting search and rescue specialists of the Navy will be able to install "Marlin 350" extra high resolution camera (Full HD), multi-beam sonar, altimeter sonar of the circular review, system of submarine navigation, a single-stage manipulator and other auxiliary equipment.

    "The main advantage "Marlin 350" is its high mobility, which is largely achieved by the ability to use this device from the vessel of any type. It is rapidly deployable, easy to operate system, which is important under strict standards of search and rescue operations", - stressed in the defense Ministry.

    Note that the underwater robot developed and produced by the Russian company from domestic components. Its tests have confirmed all the inherent characteristics and compliance with the technical requirements of the Russian Navy.
