Trident subs, the UK’s nuclear weapons programme involving arming submarines with thermonuclear warheads, is taking another beating as whispers surface of a new drone technology explosion that could blow the cover on these stealth mobiles. If drones are truly in the picture, the entire Trident subs programme will be for naught. And unlike in previous times, the claims are coming from reliable sources.

BASIC Reporting

The Defence Select Committee will listen to a report about the current state of drone technological advancements. The report is being taken more seriously than other previously mentioned concerns about this technology because it has been commissioned by the British American Security Information Council (BASIC), a multi-national think tank for disarmament.

The breakdown shows how the rapidly-advancing drone technology is making submarine warfare obsolete. The advantage of submarines is that they can travel deep into the ocean where they are beyond the reach of sensors or detectors, hence the ideal mode for surprise attack. With drones on the scene though, the ocean is becoming an open door, and nothing is hidden anymore. If the stealth advantage of submarine warfare is removed, these vehicles will no longer be the strategic weapon that they were designed to be.

 

Controversial Technology from the Start

To be sure, nuclear technology is anything but benign with controversy surrounding it at every turn. Leader of the opposition Jeremy Corbyn has publicly voiced his displeasure over the technology, citing the trauma of Hiroshima as a reminder to the world of what can happen with such deadly technology. Other reports have shown the frighteningly lax security that is containing the nukes, and there are tens of thousands of protesters who have already spoken out vehemently against the Trident initiative.

While many of the opposition claim that drone technology is a threat for sci-fi fans only, now that the drones are actually becoming more prevalent, it is going to be difficult to justify spending the £41bn in development and production of Trident subs. The vote will be made later in 2016.} else {
