US Navy comes up with Kill Web technology
The US Navy is creating an offensive anti-surface network that will tie targeting information from satellites, aircraft, ships, submarines and the weapons to form a lethal “kill web”.
The name kill web was chosen because Sky Net was already taken and death cloud sounded too much like a toxic fart.
Kill web uses sensors in a so-called tactical cloud that will allow aircraft and ships to access a range of targeting information to launch weapons against surface targets.
Rear Adm. Mark Darrah, who works admiring rears at the Strike Weapons and Unmanned Aviation at the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), used lots of buzz words to describe how it worked.
“The All Domain Offensive Surface Warfare Capability is “integrated fires, leveraging all domains, the ability for us to utilize air-launched capabilities, surface launched capabilities and subsurface launched capabilities that are tied together with an all domain [information network],” he said.
“Specifically their ability to take all of their sensors and nets them together to project their ability to see me faster and farther away and [now] my sanctuary been decreased,” Darrah said.
“It’s about their ability to reduce the amount of space I have to operate in by tying their capability together and force me to operate from a farther distance from a threat.”
The scheme will allow the Navy to increase the effective ranges of their own weapons against surface targets.
