Great recce and spying potential.
Future payload might be interesting - a UUV ?
UUV in UAV ? :-j
This UAV could be very interesting to prepare the seals work with fresh data, or to confirm the position of a moving target before a TLAM strike.
Maybe soon they could send it from torpedo tubes ... ?
I know french actually develop SAM launched from torpedo tubes, but it is not yet operationnal and this should take long times of development.

:) Seems off the wall :lol: But as the carrying capacity of the UAV is developed you could drop a light UUV
near the target - it would be light beacause it would require minimum propulsion/fuel/battery.
The UUV could be programmed to surface and radio(etc) back to the monitoring platform - UAV/aircraft/mini-sub etc.
The design speci. for the UUV may include many 'mission objectives' other than sonar. ;)
UUV or buoys ... why not !
but you will need a buoy station on the sub :lol:
anyway it could be a nice way to release a pattern of buoy in total safety for crew : if a SAM destroy the UAV, you don't lost the pilot of the aircraft.
But at this time, an UUV will be to much heavy for an UAV
