Phase 1: Sea Hunter gets its sea trial. Sea Hunters will be a class of unmanned Navy vessels designed to hunt for and track enemy submarines. DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is helping develop the ships, and DARPA does some very cool stuff. They gave us the Internet (first called ARPANET), GPS positioning, stealth technology – and I’m sure created the need for mega-caffeinated drinks like Jolt Cola.
It is a hunter only, unarmed, not like the Hunter-Killer satellites that don’t exist in orbit right now.
Here is a picture of the Sea Hunter:
