British Royal Navy’s Dreadnought 2050 warship of the future will be fully automated
What will the warship of 2050 look like? British Royal Navy has the answer for this query as they have come up with a concept design for the warship of the future. The remotely-controlled high-tech warship is going to be made from light-weight material and will be invisible to the eye. They call it Dreadnought 2050 and engineers at Royal Navy believe that this vessel is going to push the envelope of technology way beyond what we can think right now.
Unlike the war ship vessels of current era, the planes are going to be replaced by advanced drones and other war vehicles that we cannot imagine at this point in time. However, Royal Navy is far-sighted in their vision for the warship of 2050 which is going to be made from strong acrylic material with a layer of graphene to provide extra strength. There are going to be electromagnetic railguns that can fire hyper-velocity projectiles at a range of up to 200 km.
Since, there is going to be a huge influx of automated and robotic systems, therefore Dreadnought 2050 is going to be operated by a manned crew of 50-100. 5 out of these 50 are going to be sitting at the spaceship like controls and holographic imaging which is going to be largely automated. This is going to be almost 4 times less than the current warships which have around 200 crew members.
This futuristic warship is going to be based on the original Dreadnought Battleship which was in service for the British Royal Navy in the year 1906.
