The Command Combat System is an extremely advanced and sophisticated suite of technologies that enables submarines like the British Royal Navy's HMS Artful to accurately use torpedoes to take out enemy targets.

Designed by BAE Systems, the Command Combat System uses an array of sensors to track targets, before using the pertinent data to inform torpedo trajectories. What's great about this technology is that it uses easily available components and a special slew of algorithms that create a high-tech torpedo-controlling 'brain' that functions like a single computer environment rather than a disjointed set of systems. The system can be retrofitted to various war boats and submarines as well as next-generation Royal Navy submarines.

Ultimately, the Command Combat System will enable more efficient and targeted use of torpedoes to engage targets in the course of naval warfare.
