At random: Three wives of Presidents of the United States have sponsored submarines. Mrs. Dwight D. Eisenhower christened the USS NAUTILUS, Mrs. John F. Kennedy christened the USS LAFAYETTE and Mrs. Hillary Clinton christened the USS Columbia SSN771 in 1995.

Maybe what is old is new again; or, is this just a cover story to test some new weapon?

It is an easy way to cause activity over the horizon. Standard rack fit; sea-skimming, firing submarine has very little exposure. Nothing parabolic to give a localization area.

Wondering if it requires the installation of a bunch of fire control gear in the boat. Or maybe a "Find the Bad Guys" module in the missile?

Existing fire control and sonar systems are more than adequate - proven by firings three decades ago; boats capable of targeting the Mk 48 torpedo could target sub-harpoon.
