United States of America (US) Navy has tested the world’s largest unmanned surface vessel named Sea Hunter in San Diego. It is a self-driving 132-foot ship able to travel up to 10000 nautical miles on its own to hunt for stealthy submarines and underwater mines. It is designed to travel thousands of miles out at sea without a single crew member on board.
The Pentagon’s research arm, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) developed the ship along with Virginia-based Leidos and it will conduct the test in conjunction with US Navy.
So let’s do:
1. Name the world’s largest unmanned ship, which was recently tested by United States Navy ?
2. Expand the term DARPA ?
