Australia newsAustralian Defense Minister Peter Dutton has announced an intention to build $2 billion in self-driving submarines in response to the tensions in the Pacific.

The project will be co-financed by the Ministry of Defense and military technology company Anduril Australia and will result in three large submarines over the next three years.
