US Navy Catamaran Uses Mozilla as Part of its Command and Control System

Monday April 5th, 2004

Computerworld is reporting that the US Navy's HSV 2 Swift catamaran uses Mozilla technology. The Swift, described as the most technologically advanced vessel produced to date, uses Mozilla as the user interface layer of its COMBATSS command and control system. Thanks to Jesse and Lee Marzke for the news.

I'd rather lose 0 men. The article states that Mozilla is only used for the UI. "Users interface with Combatss using a Mozilla browser." When I said Mozilla shouldn't be used for mission critical applications, I meant the more internal aspects, not the UI. There is special, real-time software for that.
