The U.S. military has christened a self-driving warship.
The Sea Hunter can operate for months at a time without a crew on board. It was originally designed to hunt submarines, but officials hope it will fill multiple roles, such as anti-mine operations or transporting cargo.
The ship still has two years of testing before it's deemed safe for missions.
