Another joke added to India's underwater capability.

This is really awesome and a much needed force multiplier for our depleted submarine arm should these AUV's come to fruition.

Imagine having dozens of these patrol the Malacca Straits, the Palk Straits and other strategic channels of water remotely and round the clock transmitting sonar data via sat-link to a central station.

One day I hope the Indian Navy would have the ability to monitor all the sea traffic in the Indian ocean in real time or pretty close, much like how the Air Force monitors Indian Air Space and the surroundings.

@Anon 3:59 PM: MMRCA is supercruising at the moment evading the radars of most of the analysts, bloggers! :D

Based on Dassault's bid for Swiss fighter competition against Saab Gripen, the price for the MMRCA bid for 126 aircraft works out to be approximately $21 Billion!!!!

I think in the oil and gas industies for offshore drilling/pipelyaing, the ROV's go to depths of kilometers deep
