DARPA has begun speed testing its submarine-hunting drone ship

droneship1
This 130-foot drone ship from DARPA is almost ready to roam the open seas. The drone has already begun its speed testing has reached its expected top speed of 31 mph. However, drone does more than cruise around the ocean, it also has the ability to detect foreign submarines, including the stealthy diesel electric silent ones.
It can then follow those submarines around in an effort to spook out their operators and drive them out. If needed, the vessel can also deliver supplies and be sent on reconnaissance missions with absolutely no human on board. Before it can do the tasks it was made for, though, it still has to undergo open-water testing in California sometime this summer.
