Proving the value of Naval USVs

August 29, 20230

There are powerful forces driving the Middle East’s unmanned systems sector, but perhaps the biggest catalyst for focusing the attention of the US Navy and that of its partners on integrating unmanned systems with naval operations so far has been 5th Fleet-based Task Force 59.

Captain George Galdorisi, writing for the Center for International Maritime Security (CIMSEC) wrote about the Digital Horizon naval exercise, which took place in the Arabian Gulf last year. The exercise set out to trial and test the integration of unmanned systems, AI and big data analysis with traditional naval forces. He was kind enough to credit some of my analysis on Task Force 59’s activities, originally published in Middle East AI News.
