Homeland Security adds underwater drones!
Robocod: Homeland Security adds underwater drones to their arsenal with robots based on fish

Meet Robocod, the latest weapon in Homeland Security's increasingly high-tech underwater arsenal, a robotic fish designed to safeguard the coastline of America and bring justice to the deep.

Well almost.

The new robot, named BioSwimmer, is actually based not on a cod but a tuna which is said to have the ideal natural shape for an unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV).

David Taylor, program manager for the project at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security told Fox News: 'It's all about distilling the science. It's called 'biomimetics.

'We're using nature as a basis for design and engineering a system that works exceedingly well.

'Tuna have had millions of years to develop their ability to move in the water with astounding efficiency. Hopefully we won't take that long.'

BioSwimmer is also capable of operating in high viscocity fluids such as crude oil, which could make it a valuable tool for off-shore drilling operations.

It can be controlled by an operator using a laptop computer but is also being designed to function autonomously.

AGS Director Mike Rufo added: 'It's designed to support a variety of tactical missions and with its interchangeable sensor payloads and reconfigurable Operator Controls, and can be optimized on a per-mission basis.'
