OMG, CIA has a drone fish
by Larry Geller
CIA's Office of Advanced Technologies and Programs developed the Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) fish to study aquatic robot technology. Some of the specifications used to develop "Charlie" were: speed, endurance, maneuverability, depth control, navigational accuracy, autonomy, and communications status.

This could give new meaning to the idiom “Swim with the fishes” depending on how they arm this drone Charlie before setting him loose.
