Surface Navy 2021: CNO plans deliberate approach toward unmanned acquisitions

by Michael Fabey

The US Navy (USN) will delay the large-scale acquisition of unmanned platforms until it has developed reliable and sustainable technology, Admiral Michael Gilday, US chief of naval operations (CNO), has said.

Briefing media on his ‘CNO Navigation Plan 2021’, which was released on 11 January during the virtual Surface Navy Association 2021 National Symposium, Adm Gilday said he had no immediate plans to go on an unmanned vessel buying spree.

“I’m not talking about buying large number of unmanned [vessels] by the mid-2020s,” Adm Gilday told reporters on 8 January.
