This article discusses the Sea Power of the U.S. Americans are born believing that technology will continue to make their lives better, far into the future. Perhaps that helps explains why Americans have such high expectations of the scientists and engineers who back up our military farces. One way to achieve that is to build machines that will do the fighting for people. Many Sea Power readers are familiar with the Joint Unmanned Combat Air System, a future fleet of unmanned airplanes to handle highly dangerous tactical missions such as the suppression of enemy air defenses. But that is only one of the sea services' experiments with machines that will take the fight to the adversaries in years to come.
