The Sea Wasp, designed by defense and security company Saab, is an underwater safety robot that can be controlled with a remote.

The underwater safety robot uses sonar and an arm to find and move explosives. In some cases, the robot might be able to disable the explosives as well. The robots were built as a response to terrorism, as attacks are not only possible above ground but under the water as well. The device is even able to remove bombs that are attached to ships.

While the prospect of underwater terrorist attacks is highly unlikely, having the capacity to resolve such an issue if it were to arise would potentially save lives and could be very important for defense purposes.
