The Navy has a new framework for creating unmanned systems for its fleet. The document lists five overarching goals, but that document does not specify targets for the number of vessels or the timeline.

  • Former Special Assistant to the Chief of Naval Operations Bryan Clark said he thinks the unmanned campaign plan “fell a little short” but did a good job describing potential changes to the acquisition process.
  • For years, Congress has been trying to get the Navy to take more time to mature technologies before putting them into a final production vehicle; this document suggests the Navy will implement this change but also purchase some proxy vehicles they can use for testing out new CONOPS, said Clark.
  • Clark said the Navy should identify the mission they want these unmanned systems to support and specify what that means for design and requirements and how they will develop a roadmap to build out those systems to provide mission needs.
