UK And France Are Building Robots To Fight Underwater Explosives

The last thing an admiral wants to do is send his own sailors face-to-face with explosives. A new project, jointly funded by the defense ministries of the United Kingdom and France, wants to create a team of robots that can face down and defuse underwater mines, all without risking a human life in the process. The project has cleared the design stage, and now engineers will begin building and testing the underwater minesweepers.

The story is too old to be commented.
