Why the U.S. Navy Canceled its Anti-Torpedo Defense System
In September, the Pentagon’s Office of the Director of Test and Evaluation revealed that after five years of testing, the Navy is canceling its ambitious Anti-Torpedo Torpedo Defense System. The project up to that point has cost the U.S. $760 million.
James Holmes, Professor of Strategy and the J. C. Wylie Chair of Maritime Strategy at the Naval War College, joins the Warcast to discuss why it was canceled and how both the Navy and its rivals will adapt.
