Military technology for locating submarines became a resource discovered by Australian scientists to help find blue whales, one of the most endangered marine mammals on the planet, up to hundreds of miles away. Previously, the tracking of these animals was done only visually, but experts from the Australian Antarctic Division began using directional sound buoys (sonobuoys), equipment normally used for locating submarines.

With buoys that capture the sound produced by blue whales, the researchers recorded the presence of 103 species of animals - a record number - in an area of ​​10,000 km.
