Navy Launches a Drone From a Submerged Submarine
Cool! No doubt Glenn Greenwald will think this is aimed specifically at him. Be afraid, dudebros, be very afraid.
he Naval Research Lab just launched a drone from a submerged submarine - giving a huge edge to the future of special operations.
It took six years to develop and launch an all-electric, fuel cell-powered, folding-wing drone aircraft from a submerged submarine. The eXperimental Fuel Cell Unmanned Aerial System, or XFC UAS, was fired from the submarine’s torpedo tube using a “Sea Robin” launch system, which is designed to fit within an empty Tomahawk launch canister used for launching Tomahawk cruise missiles.
