NATIONAL HARBOR, Maryland—Drones are heading to the southern waters of 4th Fleet, which will follow 5th Fleet’s pioneering experiments with unmanned craft in the Middle East, Navy Secretary Carlos Del Toro announced Tuesday at the Navy League’s 2023 Sea-Air-Space Conference.

“The 4th Fleet area of operations provides us with an environment best suited to operationalize the concepts of Task Force 59, that has worked tirelessly to develop to increase our maritime domain awareness or MDA capabilities,” Del Toro said.
