The U.S. military is seeking to develop unmanned robots to take over dangerous tasks in the air, on land and underwater. This weekend, SPAWAR - the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center - on Point Loma, hosts a competition at its testing pool for the best new unmanned submersible. The designers in this competition are not highly paid researchers, they are students.
