"The NYC Police Harbor Unit & Secret Service went over locations sweeping for bombs, then cleared, and guarded. This underwater security shows an increasing reliance on a new tactical weapon for the police: an unmanned submersible drone, remote-operated vehicle, or ROV. The Police Harbor Unit has 6 of these underwater drones, similar to those in use by the United States military and by oil companies with offshore operations."
It is necessary and important that our police force, in collaboration with the federal government strap their thinking hats on. Our Coast Guard team, as well as the US Navy, are getting every hand on board to keep our ports and military bases safe. It is a duty they are doing well at.
It is also important that we have full knowledge of what is under our waters. This knowledge will equip us in discovering agents of pollutions and anything that may contaminate our environment. These things have the capacity to arm our aquatic ecosystem. This reduces what we can get from our waters
We should also equip ourselves with what we would need to study what obtains in our underwater currents. Also, to be able to track our underwater volcanoes and monitor underwater pipelines and underwater communication fibers is very crucial.
The preservation of our waterfronts – the ports and docks and entire cruise ship industry – is highly important. While it may seem we are paranoid when we choose to have an encompassing eye on our underwater facilities, we have to out-think our enemies, the terrorists.
They are all-out to harm us, so, we must not relax because it might seem that September 2001 was such a long time ago.
It is from their successes that we learn that there are plots to use our coastlines and waterways as entry points of attack on our soil by these terrorists.
We must always keep in mind that this war we are waging is with people whose sole aim is to destroy our civilization as we know it and truncate our progressing economy and destabilize our way of life as a nation.
I earnestly desire that we consider every point raised in this article and look in the direction of underwater autonomous vehicles. Our national security is important, we must always remember this.
