Aircraft carriers of the future will have smaller crews and be filled with a mix of UAVs and conventional aircraft.

They will still be large and vulnerable to attack.

Today’s invention lessens that threat by having the conning tower and control rooms of the ship mounted on a small internal railway carriage.

The layout of the track would be kept secret so that the location of the control centre of the carrier would be hidden, when below deck, and thus much harder to hit with eg a missile.

The Control room could be made to switch position rapidly, perhaps fast enough to actively dodge incoming attacks.
