The article presents information related to SEAL Insertion, Observation, Neutralization (SEALION) technology. The U.S. Navy plans to use its stealthy SEALION technology demonstration watercraft in future experimentation sponsored by the Department of Defense's Office of Force Transformation. The service also is using lessons learned from its first SEALION to design several enhancements for a second SEALION boat. The SEALION will take part in the Office of Force Transformation's WOLFPAC Initiative, a program to explore the ability to command and control large numbers of geographically dispersed networked assets. INSETS: Modular-Mission SEALION;SEALION Technology Demonstrator.
