DARPA is creating an unmanned sub hunting vessel

ACTUV

Submarines have evolved over the years in so many ways, that’s impossible to note them all. With these advances, submarines have been coming widely available to some second and third world countries. As not all countries are America’s friends, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), has decided to invent a submarine tracker. This tracker is called an Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV). In other words, no human intervention is required for the ACTUV to locate and trial submarines. The project will hopefully be completed by 2015, which would free the US Navy’s resources.

DARPA’s Captive Air Amphibious Transporter can drive on anything, including water

Getting to people in a regionally disaster, can be a huge problem, as there are many obstacles and debris in the way. Overcoming that problem, can be very expensive, including aerial, sea, and ground solutions. But what could you do if you could combine sea and ground solutions? Well you would get a Captive Air Amphibious Transporter. Furthermore, DARPA decide make a massive water tank, to be able to reach people no matter where they are on the ground or sea. It’s also able to carry supplies on its way. To sea this massive show of power, just look at the video above.
