Oil hunter is a missile designed to deal with ocean oil spills. Currently when an oil spill occurs, ships are sent to release nets to prevent further oil expansion. But before the ship can respond to the location, the oil has already expanded to a broader area. This process time does not include the time needed to release the nets. Oil hunter can detect oil spills as soon as they occur, and shoot the missile at the incident location. When the missile arrives, the missile will shoot out the containment net and release the Alcanivorax borkumensis, the most natural and non-toxic method of breakin down oil
