The US Navy is currently building the next class of nuclear-powered super carrier, but naval engineers are already thinking about the future. The Navy is obviously secretive about future carrier technology but some developments are predictable. Firstly, future carriers will definitely have a smaller crew as many tasks on board will be carried out by machines. They will almost certainly use stealth technology, including materials and shapes that make it difficult for the enemy to detect the ship.

It is also likely that they will include new weapons systems. These new weapons might include direct energy weapons, including lasers to shoot down enemy planes and missiles, and radio frequency weapons that will be able to destroy enemy electronic systems. Future carriers will probably include unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in their air squadrons. UAVs are small planes that can carry sensors and weapons that are controlled by a ground station instead of being flown by a pilot. One advantage of UAVs is that future carriers probably won’t be as large or expensive as the current super carriers.

Man Overboard

A seaman on leave was retelling his experiences to his family.

“All of a sudden there was a big splash. Voices shouted: ‘Man overboard! Man overboard!’ And imagine my surprise when I discovered it was me splashing around in the water.”


A Blue Jacket’s Letter

“Dear Mom:

I joined the Navy on account I liked the way they keep the boats so nice and clean. But I didn’t find out till this week who keeps them so nice and clean.

Love, Your Son.”



“Can you swim?” asked the talkative woman in the train the sailor.

“Only at times,” he replied.

“Only at times, that’s strange,” she commented.

“Yes, when I’m in the water,” explained the sailor.
