What the fuck are you talking about? Watts, and thus kilowatts, are a unit of power. Power is the rate of change of energy over time. The rate of change of time, times the time, is thus energy. kW*h is a unit of energy equal to 3.6MJ. On the other hand, kW/h is the rate of change of power output over time, which is only usable in measuring how rapidly a power plant will ramp up in power output.
They'd have launched seaplanes - they could use the ocean as their runway.
The submarines were fitted with a catapult. You can carry much more payload if you're not trying to take off from water.
Cruise missiles and soon drones are the exception that proves the rule - they're encapsulated and fit into standard torpedo tubes and thus do not impose notable restrictions on the boat.
Actually, they're usually launched out of vertical launch tubes, similarly to ballistic missiles.
Why geo? Drones are lot closer. Besides, spy satellites are leo.
Because the summary....
But satellite technology, remote sensing and computing have advanced to the stage where it's now possible to orbit a geostationary satellite that can reliably distinguish small, but spreading, wildfires with few false alarms.
