Star Wars tobecome reality as US Navy on course to arm ship with laser

星球大战即将成为现实,美国海军有望在舰船上安装激光武器

(这个不是原文图,原文图太渣了)

The laser directs a beamof energy that can burn through a target or fry sensitive electronics

激光可定向引导一束能量,利用热能烧毁目标和敏感电子零件

Some of the US Navy’s futuristic weapons sound like somethingout of Star Wars, with lasers designed to shoot down aerial drones and electricguns that fire projectiles at hypersonic speeds.

一些美国海军的未来武器听起来像星球大战里的某些东西,激光可击落无人机和超高音速电能火炮

The Navy plansto deploy its first laser on a ship later this year, and it intends to test anelectromagnetic rail gun prototype aboard a vessel within two years.

海军计划在今年晚些时候在舰艇上首次部署这种激光装置,并打算在两年内测试原型舰上的电磁轨道炮

For the Navy,it’s not so much about the whizz-bangtechnology as it is about the economics. Both are cheap comparedwith missiles and smart bombs, and they can be fired continuously.

对于海军来说,不是要那种狂轰乱炸式(威力巨大耗费巨多)的科技,它还关系到是否经济。相比相对廉价的导弹和炸弹,它们(激光)可以发射连续。

“It fundamentallychanges the way we fight,” said Captain Mike Ziv,programme manager for directed energy and electric weapon systems for the NavalSea Systems Command.The Navy’s laser technology has evolved to the pointwhere a prototype to be deployed aboard the USS Ponce this summer can beoperated by a single sailor, he said.

“它从根本上改变我们的作战方式” 定向能武器系统与海军海上系统指令项目管理,迈克齐夫上尉说,海军的激光技术已经演变出一个原型,它被部署在庞塞号,到今年夏天就可以单人操作了,他说道

The solid-statelaser weapon system is designed to target “asymmetrical threats”. These include aerial drones, speedboats and swarmboats, all threats to warships in the Persian Gulf, wherethe Ponce, a staging base, will be deployed.

固态激光武器系统的设计目标是“不对称威胁“,目标包括无人机、高速快艇和密集的舟船、波斯湾军舰的所有威胁,它将部署在庞塞号平台上。

Rail guns fire a projectile at six or seventimes the speed of sound – enough velocity to cause severe damage. The Navy sees them asreplacing or supplementing old-school guns.

轨道炮射出的炮弹有5-7倍音速–速度足够造成严重损害。海军认为它们可以替代或补充旧式火炮

But bothsystems have shortcomings. Lasers tend to lose their effectiveness if it’s raining, dusty, or if there is turbulence inthe atmosphere, and the rail gun requires vast amounts ofelectricity to launch the projectile.

但这两个系统都有缺点, 如果在雨天,扬尘天,或在大气湍流中激光将失去效应,而且轨道炮需要大量的电力来发射弹丸.

(这个是我在原图上做的注释图:)

Producingenough energy for a rail gun is another problem. The Navy’s new destroyer, the Zumwalt is the onlyship with enough electric power to run one. The stealth ship’s gas turbine-powered generators can produce up to 78megawatts – enough electricity for a medium-sized city.

为轨道炮制造出足够的能源是另一个问题,海军新型驱逐舰,朱姆沃尔特号是唯一能产生足够的能源来驱动它的军舰,这条隐身战舰内的燃气轮机发电机可以产生78兆瓦的电力–足够满足一个中型城市

The Navy’s laser directs a beam of energy that canburn through a target or fry sensitive electronics.

海军的激光发射装置可定向引导一束能量,烧毁目标或灼蚀敏感电子零件。

The targeting system locks on to the target,sending a beam of searing heat. “You see the effect on what you are targeting, but you don’t see the actual beam,” Capt Ziv said.

瞄准系统锁定目标后,发射一束热能“你能看到击中目标后的效果,但看不到那束线”齐夫上尉说

Other countriesare developing their own lasers, but the US Navy is more advanced at thispoint.

其他国家正在开发自己的激光器,但美国海军在这方面上更先进一步

“It’sfair to say there are other countries working on this technology,” Capt Ziv said.

“公平地说其他国家也致力于(研究)这项科技”齐夫上尉说

“I would also say that a lotof what makes this successful came from the way in which we consolidated all ofthe complexity into something that can be operated by [a single sailor],” he said.

“同时我想说,成功的方法有很多,我们把所有复杂的东西聚合在一起,使它能够“单人操作”,他说道

-------正文结束,评论开始,评论没啥意思,水贴..就翻几条-------

Letter_from_Captain_Swing 1 days agoSo Ronald the Lifeguard'sStar Wars programme is finally finished ? 30 years and well over budget, thiswill definitely give the USSR something to think about.

这就是说,罗纳德的那个“救生员“式的星球大战计划终于结束了?30年啊,预算早超了吧,这无疑能给“苏联“的带来一些思考

Marcus_RM 24 hours agoLaser tech has come a long way in the last 30years. accurate guidance & moving target locking tech still is still aproblem that they have to resolve with a "fire and forget" weapon thatwill ever go in a straight line.

激光科技已经经历了30年的漫长发展,精确制导和锁定移动目标技术仍存在问题,他们必须解决“开火即漏掉”的武器,他们究竟能走在一条直线上么?

Marsinah Jawa 2 days agoWonderful news about productivity. The cost ofkilling people greatly reduced.

这是关于生产效率的好消息,用这玩意杀人能更便宜

Jack Jazz 1 days agoAnd I know just how you rightards love readingabout new ways to kill people. But for now do us all a favour sunshine turn offyour Xbox finish your can special brew and go to bed!

我就知道你偏爱了解一些有关杀人的新方法,现在帮大家一个忙,赶紧闭掉你的XBOX,喝光你的特制啤酒上床睡觉去吧

ecocoop1 2 days agoAh well China will have it by next week!

啊哈,中国下个礼拜就会得到它

Zzarzax 2 days agoAlready stolen it!

(回楼上)已经偷过了

Les. Hayward 2 days agoCome on - they probably supplied the kit!

(回楼上)别这么说——没准他们还能提供配套零件呢
