The Navy Just Sent A Drone To Deliver Cargo To One Of Its Ballistic Missile Submarines

Recommended Posts

Earlier this week, a quad-copter-type drone delivered a small payload to the U.S. Navy's Ohio class ballistic missile submarine USS Henry M. Jackson as it sailed on the surface of the Pacific Ocean near Hawaii. The service said that this was a test to explore novel concepts for resupplying Ohio class submarines while they're out on their nuclear deterrent patrols, but it certainly also brings up thoughts about how some aspects of at-sea replenishment, in general, may look in the future.
