Short Takes – 3-13-24

Surface Forces: Unmanned LUSV Ships at Sea. article. Pull quote: “It is possible that by 2040 over 50 percent of all commercial shipping will be fully autonomous, making the LUSV market at that time worth roughly $65 billion a year.

LUSV commercial opportunities exist to advance existing industrial capacity and exploit research and development. These opportunities enable the ship building industries in many nations opportunities to participate in building LUSVs for commercial and military use.”
