“Sea Air Space 2022” –Naval News Video Coverage

Below I have posted two videos by Naval News, along with the breakdown of topics that accompanied the videos on YouTube. The video of the 30mm Mk38 Mod4 with its included electro-optic fire control system is probably of most immediate interest to the Coast Guard, but the increasing tendency to containerize weapon systems is appears ready to make any cutter (and almost any other ship) a missile carrier.

  1. There was also a day three video.

    00:47 – HII Remus 300 UUV
    01:22 – HII electronic warfare system for unmanned vehicles
    02:33 – HII mission technologies / Amazon’ snowball
    04:30 – USS John F. Kennedy (CVN 79)
    05:10 – Virginia-class Block V submarine
    05:43 – Columbia-class SSBN
    06:20 – U.S. Coast Guard National Security Cutter (NSC)
    06:45 – DDG 51 Flight III Jack H. Lucas destroyer
    07:10 – USS Bougainville (LHA 8) America-class
    08:07 – USS Harrisburg (LPD 30) San Antonio-class Flight II
    08:54 – Austal EPF Flight II
    10:00 – General Dyncamics NASSCO new ESB versions

    Not much of immediate interest to the Coast Guard. It shows a model of the NSC but that is all, nothing new there. The Coast Guard might have reasons to interact with the Austal EPF II with its increased medical facilities and better boat handling capability.

    We might have interactions with the NASSCO ESB, particularly when SOUTHCOM gets their ship of this class. I can’t believe these ships don’t have the facility to refuel other ships. What is a “base” without fuel. To provide that on a ship based on a tanker seems like a no-brainer.
