As a former ASW guy I can assure you that we will be able to detect and destroy these boats if it becomes necessary.
We have technology available for dealing with exactly this type of threat.
D/E boats do have a low amplitude signature because they do not have to continually run reactor coolant pumps, but they are NOT undetectable.
