Submarine launches undersea drone in a 1st for US Navy

A Navy submarine has become the first to launch and recover an underwater drone used in a military operation. The attack submarine USS North Dakota returned to its base in Groton, Connecticut, on Monday following a nearly two-month deployment. The vessel’s commanding officer, Capt. Douglas Gordon, said the Mediterranean Sea mission proved submarine-launched drones are a viable option for the Navy. He declined to provide details of the mission.
