Discusses the U.S. Navy's experimentation with a variety of optics system technology that would enable submarines to perform some surface missions without a periscope. Plan for sea trials of the Virtual Periscope aboard the USS Chicago in summer 2005; Potential of the device to give the first optical sensors on a submarine since the invention of the periscope; Concern on the device's reliance on signal processing to reconstruct fragmented images.
