The U.S. Navy in 2021 will test new technologies on ships at sea. With their help, the military will be able to remotely update firmware from ships. This is written by C4ISRNET.
Testing of technology will begin on the aircraft carrier “Abraham Lincoln” type “Nimitz”. A digital double will be created for him – technology testing implies that the military will make an exact virtual copy of a real ship, which will accurately evaluate the entire resource of the ship, as well as conduct digital tests of all updates.
At the same time, the creation of a digital double will also allow the military to introduce updates as they are developed, without waiting for the ship to be in port. The development of this technology has been ongoing since 2018. The next ship to test this system will be the Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier.
