"The Serafina is 40 centimetres (16") long, with five propellers and a plastic hull crammed with rechargeable batteries and circuitry. The craft is able to travel at a relatively fast underwater speed of one metre per second equivalent to fast walking pace but can also hover, tilt and right itself if overturned."

"Most importantly, the team have managed to refine the design so Serafina can be produced relatively cheaply starting at around A$1,000 per basic unit. This raises the potential for large numbers of Serafinas to be deployed, travelling together in swarm formation, like a school of fish."

The military are going to love this unit.!
