Underwater Drones

Ron Zollars sent me an interesting article about the recent award of a DARPA contract worth at least $58 million to SAIC to build and test a unique kind of drone: an unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV). The author of the article was complimentary about the work that we did at SAIC more than a decade ago, although I’m not sure I accomplished half the things he says I did.

You may know from reading this blog that I have been interested in drones for some time; however, this is the first that I have heard of underwater drones. According to the article, the drones are expected to be very effective against the threat of the old-style diesel-electric submarines which are favored by China, North Korea, and Iran. I look forward to hearing more about this technology as it evolves.
