-- moved to our technology goes from it in the air to underwater drones Allison Barrie joins in New York -- and -- before you know.
You mean I know this is a defense -- of course -- foxnews.com and always -- an article every week that interests us everything from.
I GI Joseph protective underwear that these soldiers may have.
I think they use to underwater -- -- thousand this topic is really hard to get some some make some waves no pun intended.
In recent weeks.
-- that is the fact that we you know we talk about drones in the army really don't think about there are a lot of drones -- really underwater battle going on right now around the globe as different technologies are trying to make their way.
To help be really be supreme.
Under the water.
Precisely -- you never know let me read those under is that I picked up.
But yes I agree then the battle for underwater supremacy -- robots is on.
Really fantastic Segway because -- our drones in just disease that I.
I find people are always really surprise that we have them under water as well.
And just the hop skip and a jump -- you out of out -- in California right now is.
-- really big -- those sub competition where people at 32 teams from around the world in the United States are duking it out.
For underwater supremacy.
This competition is focused on the younger engineers to get them excited -- in -- interested in joining the defense pipeline which.
As we've discussed before I -- is just so.
Incredibly important to have Americans interested in getting is essential degrees to keep our technological edge so.
He's young engineer teams are kind of college -- -- school age.
And it's an event that's cosponsored by the office of naval research and people are probably from they with them as being.
Paramount in maintaining need technological edge that we associate with the Marine Corps and the need be.
-- of us have some really great creative outreach programs which are just -- -- -- I love to see imaginative fun ways to do things in the event ended this week at an African threats and images -- brought some images.
From the -- We has great.
We as a -- some images you brought civil -- the viewers now on it gives you an idea where we -- hop skip and a jump that can be anywhere on the West Coast where the -- don't.
-- gets down in San Diego.
Its annual competition.
And -- encourage viewers if you've got kids are a year and some money young person interested in engineering checked out.
We put the details -- my online column but.
This is an extension C perch witches.
The -- first half of this outreach program which gives students an opportunity to learn how to build their own -- submarines which I think is pretty cool.
-- beyond my little pea brains abilities that.
I am sure there's kids out there etiquette that really knock it out of the park.
It gets learned a fun way about sort of propulsion Adam propulsion systems -- -- C displacement.
They're very kind of forefront in cutting edge.
As well as things like biological sampling because that robotic applications are quite wide from a defense perspective.
We regularly use them force reporters surveillance.
Harbor surveillance that's kind of fancy way of -- keeping -- harbor safe.
Counter terrorist activities.
-- Sadly we see a lot of -- it sees -- so these robotic subs are terribly important for that.
But it yet if you've got kind of -- to talk -- some -- his other -- -- -- -- and what do you think Adam.
A brilliant actress only a couple shout -- here Bonnie Mary's watching us so Lisa Pollard and as well as Amanda case too much also releasing a move could give some Jamison -- -- -- security guys sitting Huber.
-- -- -- -- -- Yeah along -- will quickly how how important is this on me I mean you think about these these underwater technology is an intimate propulsion all those kind of things -- people people home.
We know about how important drones are for everything from border security to helping -- troops overseas and now -- they've been fighting fires what does this do for us why do we care.
Yet does a great segment had a really as a perfect example was so happy to see that you US find it cool very relevant technology that -- to bring to -- -- Get this is another -- underwater applications are are enormous from.
There's been a lot in the news this week -- -- about environmental concerns regarding.
I'd Arctic melting of the ice caps and stuff so.
He sort of doesn't plan on environmental level -- regularly used by civilians for studying patients -- habitats -- -- -- Plow -- and environmental monitoring environmental changes like near the Arctic -- Are nothing new leases but from -- military and defense perspective of course is incredibly important just says -- cents on the skies.
He sort of dances underwater terribly important.
We discussed item before you know some stories that I've covered it.
Other applications -- for the applications of sort of sensors that he's decent -- for its technology did strips.
Read that this person that SA -- -- present her assistants it's persistent surveillance that's of those going back.
Out there but -- -- rule.
I expect that -- it broke I -- -- in -- and I don't think he dad too but here it mastered that came earlier -- -- staggers back.
-- -- the key thing is there's some really great stuff that no one really interesting thing we'll see this weekend for viewers for Anderson -- checking -- the actions semi finals on Saturday finals on Sunday will be live streaming so they can see the action out near you in San Diego.
-- to be really interesting to see Adam whether.
The winning designs -- by the medics which is essentially sort of using nature designed to nature and replicating that rather than reinventing the wheel.
And be discussed some of those advances to big breakthroughs this weekend here at and some really cool video -- -- didn't get a chance to show.
On the concept -- checked out.
Right Alison very fast vessels war games are are.
He got me screwed up now didn't they -- -- more games column is a -- worth columnist and economy.
You can see your article right there on foxnews.com robots battle for underwater -- -- What they like tech or not this is the next big thing guys it's really interesting and it's kind of -- that.
To -- a lot of has got a lot of talk in the recent weeks and houses and a great job talk about competition and what it all means that take a look at it and foxnews.com Alison.
Thanks for joining us and tram had a.
