The Pentagon’s Robot Warship Just Fired Its First Missile

One of the U.S. Defense Department’s two prototype robot warships just fired its first missile.

It’s one thing for an unmanned vessel to launch a missile, however. It’s quite another for the same vessel autonomously to find and fix targets.
