This technology pertains to carrier ships that carry thousands of missile and weapons interception rockets. There are different types of interceptors, including ICBM, ICBM MRV, SCBM, Short-Range, Mid-Range, and interceptors for other types of weapons systems including the ability to safely catch and destroy cluster bombs before the device explodes / hits the ground. These carriers have self-defense systems, and have the ability to render an offensive military offline due to the ability to intercept all of the long-range and short-range rockets that would be on contingency. This technology would be important for global non-proliferation, and the reduction of the use of armed offensive aircraft carriers for defensive work. This technology would also help to improve domestic defense, since the interceptors can be moved, the foreign targeting of the interceptor systems is difficult, and the carriers have the ability to get closer to the point of launch without having or using an offensive capability.
