Institute of Advanced and Applied Naval Architecture

Based at the highly classified Area 52 sector of the NASA system, the IAANA seeks to maximise the use incremental advantages in the fields of naval architecture to leverage maximum military utility out of existing technology. First expounded during early trials with Gold Plated Battleships the staff of the IAANA describe themselves as at the cutting edge of naval technology. Independent economist have described the work as a bottomless pit of public money for no discernible advantage. IAANA uses out of the box thinkers from the fields of naval architecture, and experienced naval crews from all disciplines. So far unsubstantiated claims include Destroyers capable of 2.2G, Super High Energy Lasers (SHELLS) and highly advanced damaged control techniques. None of these are believed to be deployed on any regular warships.
