Rheinmetall is now proposing the vehicle with the unmanned version of the Lance, the first target is Canada's CCV, where the Boxer IFV will be proposed by the two local companies of the group, Rheinmetall Canada and RMMV
The plan is for the two RMMVs
to work in concert as a bi-static acoustic detection system.
Navy's mine countermeasure capability and the only minehunting sonar sensor developed, tested and certified for RMMV deployment.
This exercise has proven the capabilities of both the RMMV and AQS-20A, testing both stability and performance in an operational environment," said Steve Lose, U.
The RMMV is a robust unmanned, semi-submersible, semi-autonomous vehicle that can be adapted to a broad spectrum of applications and missions, including towing variable-depth sensors to detect, localize, classify and identify undersea threats at a safe distance from friendly ships.
The RMMV is the integral mobile subsystem of the Navy's AN/WLD-1 Remote Minehunting System (RMS), which includes the RMMV, a launch and retrieval system for the RMMV, the RMMV-towed sonar sensor, advanced communications equipment and software that integrates RMS into the host ship's combat system.
Delivery of the second production unit, just four months after the initial production unit delivery, clearly demonstrates the RMMV
production team's commitment to 'mission success' and ability to deliver results," said John Bowen, Lockheed Martin's senior program manager of the Remote Minehunting System Program.
The vehicles that RMMV
will deliver under the deal will include medium and heavyweight recovery vehicles, heavy-duty logistical vehicles, consolidated load managing systems and also medium-sized cargo bed versions with cranes, fuel and water modules and tipper bodies.
