A variety of probable world political environments are postulated. From these environments, possible concepts for future warships, merchant ships, salvage ships, and research vehicles, both on the surface and undersea are discussed. A forecast is made of the ship control systems requirements for these future ship concepts of the 21st Century; and the needs for action today are highlighted. Trends in ship control systems are traced up to the present time when navigation is assisted by spacecraft orbiting the earth, and these trends are projected into a future of high speed, unmanned and automated seapower.
