The littoral warfare environment encompasses the maritime, air, land, space, and cyber domains as well as the information space and in that regard, also all associated opposing, friendly, and neutral systems (political, military, economic, social, informational, infrastructure, legal, and others). Artificial Intelligence is one of the major trends for the littoral wafare. Littoral warfare is also characterized by ‘speed’: speed of data exchange and picture compilation, speed of command and control, speed of reaction. In order to be faster than an adversary and also to maintain the initiative, ‘speed’ must remain key requirement in future military campaigns, particularly those involving littoral warfare. This will be achieved through knowledge, decision, and technological superiority. In the near future, AI will likely continue to be context-specific, restricted to certain types of problems.
Maritime power is substantiated by the ability of an actor to gain control over sea areas of his interest (surface, subsurface, airspace) associated to the freedom of movement as well as action within these areas, and concurrently to exert diplomatic, economic, and military influence at a time and place of his choice. Maritime power has traditionally been employed globally to maintain the freedom of navigation as an essential foundation for the economic prosperity and overall welfare of states; conversely it has been regularly used to disrupt the Sea Lines of Communications of an opponent.
