Rolls-Royce may be a brand that most people associate with luxury cars, but the fact of the matter is that the British company has long been investing research and development dollars into exploring naval vessel technology, something that is evident when you look at its new concept, an autonomous naval ship.
This particular naval vessel would be able to operate without any crew for over 100 days and 6,000 kilometers at a time, while cruising along at a top speed of 26 km/h.
What's great about this naval vessel is the fact that it will enable naval forces to direct their manpower towards the areas where they can put their expertise to use, rather than have them waste their time away at sea to carry our tine tasks which can be accomplished with the latest autonomous technologies.
