Like busy little spiders. Imagine if the string was sticky and laced as a net, not a bridge, across the likely path of opposition personnel & equipment?

You can also use autonomous drones for bridge inspection rather than sending expensive human divers :

Really it’s just a cute lipstick project to hide a whole lot of bleeding edge work on autonomy in USV/UUV’s – FAU has very close links with NSWC so I assume most of their work is being funded by the USN.
