Earlier this year MShipCo. suspended it’s operations in San Diego, California. The company continues to maintain it’s IP portfolio in two strategic areas; advanced M-Hull design and REI hull testing platform.
MSHIPCO has engaged Global Capital Markets Inc. (GCMI), a middle market M&A investment bank with global reach to advise on corporate strategic options including sale, licensing, or other transactions.
MSHIPCO of San Diego, delivers innovative and cost effective solutions to the maritime industry. As creator of the “M80 Stiletto” (Time Magazine’s Best Innovation for 2006) which employs MSHIPCO’s proprietary M-hull technology, its designs have redefined naval military movement on the water.
Prototype Navy Ship, Stiletto, Continues To Demonstrate the Transformational Value of Motherships for Unmanned Systems
MSHIPCO’s prototype ship, Stiletto, has launched more unmanned systems than any other ship in the US Navy and continues to demonstrate the value of a small dedicated platform to support drones. In its latest demonstration, the United Kingdom’s Defense Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) in partnership with the Department of Defense (DOD)’s Stiletto Maritime Demonstration Program conducted a second set of maritime unmanned air system (UAS) evaluation aboard the Stiletto during the first half of November 2014, focused on UAS Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) payloads.
Memorandum by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel
I am establishing a broad, Department-wide initiative to pursue innovative ways to sustain and advance our military superiority for the 21st Century and improve business operations throughout the Department. We are entering an ear where American dominance in key war fighting domains is eroding, and we must find new and creative ways to sustain, and in some areas expand, our advantages even as we deal with more limited resources. This will require a focus on new capabilities and becoming more efficient in their development and fielding.

The U.S. Navy wants unmanned underwater vehicles that are faster, tougher and more reliable than the ones it has now. It wants them to be easy to deploy, including from ships and airplanes, and it wants them to have better sensors and longer endurance. And it wants them to be cheap.
French ship builder DCNS has awarded a contract to Terma for the delivery of two Scanter 6000 naval surveillance radars for integration into the French Navy carrier, Charles de Gaulle (R91).

The UK's Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) is preparing to conduct a second set of maritime unmanned air system (UAS) evaluations from the US Department of Defense's (DoD's) high-speed vessel testbed Stilleto.

Earlier this year, satellite imagery revealed Iran’s construction of a full-size USS Nimitz-class aircraft carrier replica, which was created so that swarms of high-speed Iranian boats could practice destroying it.
Defeating that threat will require a different kind of vessel than the massive, blue-water ships that populate the Navy’s fleet, boatbuilding company executives told National Defense. To protect its larger carriers and warships, the service may need to rely on small, creatively-shaped boats that are heavily armed and equipped with unmanned systems.

WASHINGTON: Even as the Navy pursues cheaper ships such as LCS and JHSV, the Marines’ message is: Amphibious Warships; Accept No Substitutes. There’s real interest and opportunity in non-traditional ways to deploy Marines, assistant commandant Gen. John Paxton said today, but a purpose-built amphibious ship remains the Marine’s top choice to go to war with. The Navy’s two most innovative ship classes in particular, the Joint High Speed Vessel (JHSV) transport and its armed cousin the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), are “marginal” for Marine Corps purposes.
