DARPA's Upward Falling Payloads project is intended to pre-deploy military assets on the sea bed
The DARPA project envisions deploying assets such as this earlier DARPA concept, the Cormant underwater UAV
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has seen the future of naval warfare and it’s falling upward. As part of an effort to reduce the logistics of sending equipment into trouble areas, the agency’s Upward Falling Payloads project is aimed at developing storage capsules capable of remaining on the deep seabed for years. These would contain non-lethal military assets that could be deployed on the spot years in advance and rise to the surface as needed.
