The article reports on the development project launched by the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) which aims to design a vessel capable of speed up to 100 knots underwater in the U.S. The DARPA program, called Underwater Express, would examine the possible application of supercavitation to overcome water resistance. To pursue the objective, DARPA awarded research and development contracts to General Dynamic's Electric Boat division and Northrop Grumman's Electronic Systems.
