Graphene ship tech makes the future dreadnought
When thinking in the future weapon will found a lot of engineering and designer racing to Graphene because of it the strongest material in the world!
We see it when British naval architects and engineers were tasked by the Royal Navy and ministry of defense to imagine how the future naval ships might look to create “Dreadnought 2050” graphene ships that can become see-through, electromagnetic weapons with a range of hundreds of miles and torpedoes that travel at 300 knots ,Warships of the future could be built from ultra-strong plastic and graphene , armed with weapons that fire at the speed of light and operated by crews a fraction of the size needed by current vessels.
Just some of the ideas for warships of the future, in a challenge, issued a procurement group that brings together experts in naval defense from the government, military, and industry to provide advanced technology against a backdrop of tightening budgets.
Engineering and designer using graphene as suggested to increase the strength of ships, as well painting all metal parts by graphene paint to less corrosion it and coating ship hulls to reduce drag, meaning they could sail faster and use less fuel. Among other features thought up for the ships are drone carrying sensors to replace conventional masts, to be connected to the ship by a tether made from cryogenically-cooled carbon nanotubes which would transmit power to aircraft’s motors and also energy weapons such as lasers.
Naval architects also suggested arming the ships with electromagnetic “railguns”, which fire projectiles as far as today’s cruise missile fly, rows of missile tubes along the ship’s sides which launch hypersonic missiles at speeds of Mach 5-plus, and super cavitating torpedoes which travel at 300 knots because they are encased in a bubble of gas which reduces friction.
The operations room would have superfast data connections to the rest of the fleet and aircraft, along with headquarters, meaning operations could be commanded from thousands of miles away , Using such advanced technology is expected to cut the number of crew required from about 200 on a contemporary warship to as few 50.
