Maybe we will see these coming out of the side boat bays in destroyers and frigates in the future. Though it does look pretty big!

The Haishen (海神) UUV. It's capable of operating at a depth of 6000 meters and features side-scanning sonar to perform detailed surveys. Very handy when looking for objects lying on seabed, such as a blackbox. Haishen is usually paired with a deep-sea towed vehicle (second image). The towed vehicle is used to perform initial wide-area scans to mark objects of interest, and Haishen is then sent to perform a more detailed examination.
