The battleship with no crew

World Economic Forum: An experimental anti-submarine drone warship developed by DARPA has officially been transferred to the US Navy's research office. It looks like something out of Star Trek, but for the water.

The Anti-submarine warfare continuous trail unmanned vessel — AC TUV for short — is a futuristic drone ship outfitted with computers, sensors, and cameras, all intent on searching for and tracking enemy submarines. And since it's fully autonomous, there's no crew onboard or humans controlling it remotely.
