According to an IEE story, the Royal Navy is about to take delivery of ten new unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs). The autonomous underwater robots are known as Remote Environmental Monitoring Units (REMUS). They scan the waters up to 100 meters deep looking for underwater mines. The robots, which are made by Hydroid, are expected to be in service until 2011 protecting harbors and ports against terrorist attacks. Thanks go to dogsbody_d for the tip.
