DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) has launched and turned over to the Office of Naval Research (ONR) "Sea Hunter". ONR is sea trialing the Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) for the US Navy. The vessel is designed to operate as a drone to detect submarines on long range missions of thousands of miles. Sea Hunter will also be configured for mine detection, weather observation and other functions. Over the next year the prototype will be tested before deployment. Delivery to the US Navy will come at the end of 2018.





"Sea Hunter" was built by Christensen Yachts, a builder specializing in advanced fiberglass construction. The video below shows a time lapse of the build, walk through and launch.
