The article reports on the innovation project of the Office of Naval Research (ONR) which aims to help the U.S. Navy dominate in undersea battles. Due to the growing threats in the nation, ONR asked researchers at Penn State University to design technology that would respond to coastal surveillance calls. Now, they are devising Dubbed PLUSNet, the Persistent Littoral Undersea Surveillance Network for the said purpose. Details related to the abilities of the devise are discussed.
