The article focuses on changes that should be made to make U.S. submarines undetectable. The author suggests a method to design a submarine which is truly invisible under water. It should be designed in such a manner that it does not reflect a sonar ping. It is stated that the sides and bow need to be sharp on the edges, the sail angled on all sides, the rudder shaped to deflect and the propeller hidden.
