Breaking News – U.S. to patrol South China Sea with Submarine Drone

U.S. Navy announced plan to patrol the South China Sea with submarine drones. The initial deployment of submarine drones is expected to be surveillance, however naval planners believe there are endless potential uses. It could be used to release a series of much smaller drones that could be mines or used to track subs or even launch their own missiles to counter China or Russia threat.
Small submarine drones can enter an enemy harbor unobserved because it would be much harder to track using sonar system. It can operate in shallow water where a full size submarines can’t. This top secret project became public only in recent months where U.S. defence secretary Ashton Carter hinted at using them in the disputes water.

This month, U.S. navy will also deploy its first Anti-Submarine Warfare Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel or ACTUV. Known as Sea hunter, this autonomous unmanned vessel is intended primarily to track enemy diesel-electric submarines in shallow waters. It can also be used for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance tasks, unmanned underwater vehicle launch and recovery, and transportation of vehicles and running logistics of the US Navy. It has a maximum speed of 27 knots and can operate up to a range of 10,000 nautical miles when sailing at a speed of 12 knots in open seas. It can stay afloat for 60 to 90 days. It has already successfully tracked a submarine from 1 kilometre away.
