Storyline

MacGyver is part of a group that is testing remote-controlled unmanned submarines for the DEA's Submarine Interdiction Program, which was looking good until the drug cartel equipped their drug boats with sonar. Fortunately, MacGyver's group has come up with a device called ERMA, that is capable of creating false sonar readings, thus making a DEAD sub equipped with one invisible to all cartel sonar. Of course, the cartel would be VERY interested in getting their hands on such a device... Written by Toni Tapola, Finland
