Alhallami Group develops stealth 'floating villa'

stealthAbu Dhabi-based Alhallami Group has developed the CGP-1 Stealth, a floating villa

Equipped with state-of-the-art desalination, sewage treatment, navigational and radar systems, it can serve as a central point for patrol boats to dock, refuel, rotate shifts, and act as a marine early warning checkpoint.

The real estate and naval construction firm said, "The self-sustainability, ability to carry large amounts of fuel, food, ammunition and weapons, in addition to the stealth segmented designs makes it an ideal addition to navy, critical infrastructure protection and coast guard fleets, on shore, in the seas and coastal areas.

"In addition, the body can be manufactured of military grade steel, aluminum, fiberglass or Kevlar and it has several surface to air missiles and other defence armaments according to the client needs to be able to perform complete self defence."

The stealth could also act as an espionage centre for communication between the submarines and surrounding boats and relay them to the command centre.

It could be controlled remotely without being manned, to act as a field reconnaissance centre, and detect chemical leaks such as oil, hazardous and radioactive material when equipped with the required sensors. Training for divers too could be provided.

The firm said that the vessel can be manned with a number of specialised officers and soldiers, adding that they can carry on the operation without any logistic support for over a month.

The engines could be switched with electrical silent propellers to do away with the sensor footprint in military operations that require minimising the efficiency of enemy detection, it said.
