The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has developed a 130-foot boat that can prowl the seas unmanned. Military officials think it can be effective in detecting submarines. For an assessment of whether this is where we’re headed, Pentagon Solutions turned to Bryan Clark, senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments.
