    I constantly see P-8s buzzing around the patch. I don't think there's enough H20 to hide a russkie squid around here though.
    I hear the only ones we have real trouble finding are the Scandinavian ones.

    Many years ago I worked a Superconductivity Program, developing a sensor that was exceedingly good at pinpointing the location of Russian Submarines through their distortion in the Earth's magnetic field. It made no difference how quiet or what they were made of.

    We could pinpoint their location to a gnats butt at any operational depth. The governments of some Scandinavian countries requested one each to protect their fjords from being an intelligence point for adversaries.

    The sensors were quite good and the request was refused on the basis that the technology was too critical to leave the country.

    We are not as helpless as some think

    I suspect we've got a tail on every boomer out there.

    My bubblehead nephew on fast attacks just winks at me when I ask.

    Am sure the detection methods have advanced a lot since I was making "detergent" patrols back in the late 70's.

    There is s lot we keep to ourselves.

    I get a kick out of other countries that announce their latest military technology to the world and showcase a mock-up. Especially when experts see what obsolete tech they used for parts.

    We just sit back and deny any knowledge or involvement in any new technology.

    As a retired Navy guy, I'm of course interested in such things, however, the "Business Insider" can't be considered an authoritative source. Don
