ShareThisUS Navy launches drone from submerged submarine 05 Dec 2013 Today, the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) announced that it had successfully launched a drone from a submerged submarine. The all-electric eXperimental Fuel Cell Unmanned Aerial System (XFC) was launched in the Bahamas from the Los Angeles-class nuclear-powered attack submarine USS Providence (SSN 719), using a system that allowed the drone to be deployed without modifications to the boat — or requiring it to surface. For the submarine test, the XFC was placed inside of a "Sea Robin" launch vehicle.
