Satellite imaging

Discussion in 'Submariners' started by FAAFLYNAVY, Dec 15, 2012.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Read a report in an obscure technical journal that said that satellite imaging will be able to see through water within 15 years, only the hard planet surface will be recognized, all boats will be clearly visible & the position & depth will be calculated direct from the satellite position unless their under the ice or sitting on the bottom.

    This means all aircraft, ships & boats will be being tracked from high above, with this type of information is it worth continuing with development & build of boats considering the high costs involved?
  2. Such as this one?

    What is State of the Art in Submarine Detection?

    The buzz is that, in conjunction with the western scientists trialling such systems, a team of physicists are developing a laser-proof paint as we speak.

    More seriously, such systems were being talked about among the ASWE scientists I worked with in the early eighties. Such research is unlikely to just be dropped (or evident in the public arena) so I'd imagine there are teams of geeks still secretly beavering away at both that and the countermeasures 24/7.

    IMO any aliens would have such fits as standard but our difficulty is finding/communicating with them to cut a deal. :wink:

  3. Synthetic Aperture Radars & SEASAT, old news. :sleepy1:
