23-Foot-Long Vessel Saildrone in Bahrain

The deployment of a robotic, 23-foot-long vessel Saildrone, which resembles a torpedo with a 15-foot-tall shark fin in the Kingdom, had been in the reports of US Navy’s Stars and Stripes. Powered by wind and solar panels, it has cameras and sensors to keep watch and the ability to sift through data to figure out what’s important.

These unmanned ships can help the fleet patrol the busy waters of the Middle East, a pathway for much of the world’s shipping as well as for pirates, smugglers and militias armed with drones of their own.
