Default U.S. Navy Aircraft Carriers making room for drones

I saw this happening two (2) years ago, but the USN is sure slow to respond to the drone threat.
In fact what I saw was similar to WWII DE tenders and submarine tenders loaded with drones airplane types and underwater types,
but that will probably take another five (5) years to go all the way.

The Navy is building a special new command and control mini "drone-headquarters" space on its aircraft carriers to operate deck-launched drones as part of a strategy aimed at massively increasing the scope of carrier-launched drone missions in coming years.

Launching drones from carriers represents an unprecedented technical leap for the Navy as it seeks to expand surveillance and combat range and mission scope for its Carrier Air Wings.

Had to keep reading to find out which carriers looks like the newest ones


The center, called Unmanned Aviation Warfare Center, is being built into both the Navy's new Ford-class carriers as well as its existing Nimitz-class carriers.

“It is the re-purposing of a space on the ship to basically be a control room from which you can send and receive data from unmanned systems and give them updates as needed,”
pla•teau noun
a relatively stable level, period,
or condition a level of attainment
or achievement

Lord help me get to the next plateau ..
