Hanna refers to supercavitation as something "...you'd really want to keep secret...". While the specifics of a particular supercavitation design might be classified, the principle is not; supercavitation has been used in hydrofoil design for over forty years and in propellers and underwater projectiles even longer. Supercavitating propellers have been used in military, racing and model boats since 1914; German engineers produced a prototype of an air to sea missile in 1940; the Russian APS underwater rifle uses a supercavitating bullet, and, more recently, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) solicited open bids from private contractors for a 100-knot transport submarine (the Underwater Express). Russia has a supercavitating torpedo and Iran claims to have tested one of their own, possibly based on the Russian design. See more
