The ocean depths can provide "cheap stealth," -- even been involved in a deep sea project? Nothing is "cheap" down there.

Slow day at the old lab and these guys need a budget to keep the office open. And the good part is, by making it part of the "black budget" they don't have to answer to anybody about anything. Not even congress,who can't mention it even if they know about it.

Why just under the sea. Why not use space - hide stuff behind satelites, space junk, etc. This way, no one will know where to look.

Sounds rather dumb to me, but then like "they" say of you don't dream you never advance. Still there are so many things that could/will go wrong with this plan I doubt it will ever get off the ground and if it does it will waste a lot of money. But then what the heck we have plenty of printing presses with lots of green and red ink right?

DARPA does some crazy stuff, I remember a few years back they talked about developing a flying, armored car for military purposes. Not sure if that is soemthing currently being worked on or just hypothesized.
