Go deep. Go long. That's what Boeing's newest autonomous unmanned underwater vehicle, Echo Seeker, is designed to do.

It's a follow up to Echo Ranger, and its capabilities allow it to perform longer missions at greater depths than other unmanned submersibles. Check out the video to see Echo Seeker go through the paces at Boeing’s Huntington Beach facility.
