Quotes

"This invention has reference to the construction of a floating battle fort in which the auxiliary forces of the country can be utilized for defending the coast thereby freeing the war ships of the regular navy for use elsewhere where their services would be more urgently required. For this purpose my floating battle fort comprises a flat bottom navigable vessel of large displacement, small draught, and considerable beam, say 100 feet, its central portion being protected by angular or curved bulkheads and side armour and its end portions, which are preferably of cellular construction, being provided with armoured decks at or below the water line, or with a belt of armour extending straight down to the bottom of the vessel. The armoured central portion or citadel is provided with turrets each of which is constructed either with a single platform or with two platforms, one above the other, one to accommodate two heavy guns, as 12 inch guns, and the other to accommodate two lighter guns, say two 6 inch quick firing guns. The armour of the turrets protecting the lower guns is thicker than that protecting the upper guns. The turrets may advantageously be four, (or more) in number, arranged in echelon that is to say two of them, when four are used, being arranged with their axes in the longitudinal plane of the vessel and the outer two being arranged one on each side of the longitudinal plane and between the others. By this means all the guns, 16 in number, can be fired simultaneously broadside, and the guns twelve in number, of three of the turrets, can be fired simultaneously fore and aft."

...According to news reporting out of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "This paper presents a data SONAR classification approach that is based on multiway analysis. The passive SONAR system receives the acoustic signals emitted by ships and tries to categorize them as a function of the similarities between ships of the same class."
