Breaking waves: The future of the submarine according to the US Navy
BREAKING WAVES: THE FUTURE OF THE SUBMARINE ACCORDING TO THE US NAVY
The newest generations of submarine are designed to take advantage of an information technology revolution that has defined the 21st century.
Born to serve the needs of a post-Cold War military continuum, they are constructed to augment information flow and optimise situational awareness for the operatives and decision makers on-board.
The role of the submarine in the modern day military mix is an interesting prospect, with navy submersibles increasingly engaged in an area-denial context, as well as executing the duties involved in patrolling, policing and protecting key waterways.
In the following interview, we speak to Rear Admiral Moises Del Toro III, Deputy Commander for Undersea Warfare for the US Navy, about the changing role of the submarine as an essential part of a full spectrum strategy.
