Raytheon has delivered latest fifth-generation hull-mounted sonar system, for Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)'s Anti-Submarine Warfare Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel program.
The company announced today that it delivered the prototype of the new underwater submarine detection system for mounting it on (DARPA)'s unmanned trimaran hulls. A prototype trimaran built by Leidos is designed to serve as the program's unmanned vehicle.
Russia is also developing an underwater drone that is capable of inflicting huge damage to coastal areas as part of a top secret project known as Ocean Multipurpose System: Status-6 carrying a torpedo equipped with a nuclear warhead.
This weaponized drone will be capable of causing "assured unacceptable damage" to an enemy by contaminating vast coastal areas, rendering them completely unusable for long periods of time, and will be able to bypass NATO's missile defense system.
A presentation slide with information on the Status-6 project was accidentally broadcast on Russian TV as part of a story covering Vladimir Putin's meeting with defense officials in Sochi, the Kremlin confirmed.
