Expanded complexity and scope mark first USN fleet exercise with unmanned systems

by Michael Fabey

The US Navy will be mating manned and unmanned platforms and systems with greater complexity and scope than attempted in previous operations during April’s Unmanned Integrated ‘Battle Problem (UxS IBP) 21’, said Captain Jeff Heames, commanding officer of Surface Development Squadron (SURFDEVRON) One, which supplied surface assets for the exercise.

Teaming manned and unmanned platforms is not new for SURFDEVRON One, Capt Heames noted on 23 April during a briefing on the eight-day ‘UxS IBP 21’, which started on 19 April.
