The race for global domination isn't always run on land, and in this release that explores the unseen battle waged beneath the ocean surface, former Naval intelligence officer Dr. Robert Ballard takes viewers to the depths of the sea to reveal the remarkable technology behind Navy submarines. Additional information on such recently declassified deep-sea defense operations as SOSUS, the U.S. Navy's top-secret sound surveillance system, offers a look at how the military had adapted to take advantage of the open waters during warfare, and interviews with marine experts and high-ranking military officers offer a fascinating look at the future of ocean-based military technology.
