It seems DARPA is testing the feasibility waters for an unmanned sea drone. The idea seems to be to make the robot do all the hard, dangerous work of tracking and harassing aggressor subs, leaving the rest of the Navy to do whatever the heck they'll have left. Fling airplanes at the water, that sort of thing.

How will they get signals to and from the unmanned sub? Radio waves can't penetrate any significant amount of water, and sonar is next to impossible to conceal and way too easy to disrupt.
They'll use SkyNet. Perfectly safe system, that. Nothing bad could ever come from it.
One of these days I will have to learn not to comment before reading the article. Oh well, as long as my stupidity is amusing someone, it's not a total loss...
