China plans to build an underwater wall using drones

Gran Muralla China

Recently in China there is a debate on the possible construction of a underwater platform located 3.000 meters below the surface, a project that apparently would already have the green light and that would be built using unmanned aircraft. As a detail, tell you that this project was already mentioned by the Chinese Minister of Science last March, specifically during the presentation of the country's five-year economic plan.

Returning to the platform, it would act like the «Big Wall»At the time, that is, as a barrier capable of detecting the presence of enemy submarines through a series of sensors in the South China Sea. On the other hand, one of the main objectives of this project is found in the interest in exploitation and extraction of mineral resources recently located in that area. As a negative point, we find that the exact location of this platform would be in a territory that China, the Philippines and Vietnam have been fighting for years.

To build such a structure, the leaders of the Asian country have it very clear and they would bet directly on those drones called as Sea Drones as well as a number of other unmanned support aircraft that should operate both in and out of the water. On the other hand, all these ships would be equipped with anti-submarine weapons in order to be used for the defense of the country if necessary.
