BioSwimmer was modeled after a tuna because their body shape allows them to maneuver far more gracefully in rough water conditions than many other species. If you've ever caught a tuna or seen them chasing bait, you know their speed and agility is poetry in motion. So does BioSwimmer have lasers and a torpedo tube? Not yet. While a school of these tuna might be working for the military down the road, right now the one-and-only prototype is being used for inspecting oil tanker hulls from underwater. Homeland Security plans to use BioSwimmers to patrol harbors and around piers in the near future.
