Rolls-Royce Launches Innovative Technology to Support Naval Autonomy

September 10, 2019 – Rolls-Royce is developing an autonomous machinery control system which allows Naval vessels to undertake long endurance missions with less human interaction. Developed by Rolls-Royce, Artificial Chief Engineer® is a critical enabler for autonomous missions by acting as the equivalent of the engineering department responsible for the health and the operation of an unmanned vessel’s machinery. Navies intend to increase their use of optionally-manned and unmanned vessels to project power further for less cost by reducing reliance on manpower, by allowing higher-risk or longer-endurance missions and by…
