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.

We must remember that the internet has its roots in military application. Like it or not, many of the modern conveniences we enjoy are thanks to military development. I'm as vehemently opposed to abuses of military power as any right-thinking world citizen should be, but I can't see this as anything but a positive endorsement for Mozilla technology being used in critical real-world applications.
