Professor Jonathan Gates
Between 2006 and 2013 six powerful new Type 45 destroyers entered service with the Royal Navy. These Daring Class destroyers deploy a naval command system that set a new standard, a unique anti-air warfare radar and missile system as well as an innovative and economical propulsion system. Even the accommodation for the men and women onboard is a radical departure from past warships. Jonathan Gates was intimately involved in the design of the destroyers and has written a book about the class. He will describe these warships and their operation.
