DARPA, BAE Systems Developing Small Unmanned Underwater Vehicles to Hunt Enemy Submarines

Lt. j.g. Matthew Clark, assigned to the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Mahan (DDG 72), talks to sonar technicians about attack options during anti-submarine warfare training. Surface combatants can use active or passive detection to find subs, whereas submarines are limited to passive detection if they want to stay stealthy.
