Robotics

Robotics is a branch of technology that deals with the design, construction, operation, structural disposition, manufacture and application of robots  and computer systems for their control, sensory feedback, and information processing, these systems can come in any shape and size depending on what you need them for. These technologies deal with automated machines that can take the place of humans, in hazardous or manufacturing processes, or simply just resemble humans. Many of today’s robots are inspired by nature contributing to the field of bio-inspired robotics.

The concept and formation of machines that could operate freely dates back to classical times, but research into the functionality and potential uses of robots did not grow considerably until the 20th century. Throughout history, robotics has been often seen to mimic human behaviour, and often manages tasks in a similar fashion. Today, robotics is a rapidly growing field, as we continue to research, design, and build new robots that serve various practical purposes, whether domestically, commercially, or militarily. Many robots do jobs that are hazardous to people such as defusing bombs, exploring shipwrecks, and mines. The US has started researching into creating a type of robot that can work along side humans in the Armed Forces, by helping in the field.

Navy Ships – Assault ships

The four ships which form the core of the Royal Navy’s amphibious fleet are helicopter carriers HMS Illustrious and Ocean and assault ships HMS Albion and Bulwark – the latter is also Britain’s flagship. With the exception of Portsmouth-based Illustrious, the amphibious force – which deploys as part of the UK’s Response Force Task Group – is concentrated in Devonport, close to many of the Royal Marines’ assault and raiding units, and the commandos’ training centre in Lympstone.

 

 

 

Is Civil Engineering for you?

Civil engineering is a professional engineering authority that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and natural aspects built into an environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and various other buildings. Civil engineering is the oldest engineering authority after military engineering and it was defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering. Civil engineering is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines including environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, municipal or urban engineering, water resources engineering, materials engineering, coastal engineering, surveying, and construction engineering. Civil engineering takes place on all levels: in the public sector from municipal through to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.

Royal Navy Ships

In total there are 79 commissioned ships in the navy. 19 of the commissioned vessels are major surface combatants (6 guided missile destroyers and 13 frigates) and 11 are nuclear powered submarines (4 ballistic missile submarines and 7 fleet submarines). In addition the Navy possesses an aircraft carrier, a helicopter carrier and 2 landing platform docks.

The 19 ships of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary are not included in this list or above figures; additionally there are the minor vessels (tugs, etc) of the (now privatised) Marine Services, and training vessels based at the various shore establishments.

Stay tuned for more information on each of the ships….
