India Seeks Micronaval Capability

With an increasing PLAN presence in the Indian Ocean, and continued tensions with China on the Doklam plateau, India is seeking to offset its warship deficit through the development of an advanced microsubmarine, the Saaya-class.

Little is known of the Saaya program, as it is heavily shrouded in secrecy, but India has a history of successful indigenous AUV design, most notably, the Maya, and the AUV-150.
