It is indisputable that without weapons and their associated systems, a Navy has little utility. But weapons have come a long way since the days of cast iron cannons and solid shot. Today's naval weapons are as complex as they are necessary, making extensive use of radar, sonar, lasers, computers, and a host of other supporting components. This new book is the "Rosetta stone" that makes these complicated systems decipherable and understandable. By necessity, the book takes a multi-disciplinary approach, pulling together, in a practical way, elements of electronics, hydraulics, ballistics, explosives chemistry, and various other arts and sciences to give the naval professional a solid foundation and the penetrating understanding they need to be the masters of modern weapon technology. Filled with explanatory illustrations and practical photographs to accompany the carefully written text, this work is user friendly as well as authoritative. Developed as the primary weapons textbook for the U.S. Naval Academy, this up-to-date and comprehensive book is a worthy new addition to the Naval Institute's Blue & Gold Professional Library, serving with the other books in the series as a primary source of knowledge and guidance to naval professionals.
