The Sea Jet is a 133 foot long scale model of a future warship designed by the U.S. Navy. The model boasts the water jet system, AWJ-21, developed by Rolls Royce Naval Marine corporation. The tests of an all water jet propulsion system, which will replace the conventional rudders and (screw) propeller completely, will be carried out in the Idaho lake. After the AWJ-21 tests are finished, the water jet system will be withdrawn, and another new propulsion system, RIMJET (a conventional propeller mounted in a pod that is placed outside the ship), installed and tested. The U.S. Navy aims to determine, whether the new systems will make the ships quieter and more agile in coastal waters. Building all electric ships is planned within the next decade.
