programme has emerged in response to the perceived threat posed by virtually silent conventional submarines.
So, when tasked with developing this maritime autonomy suite for ACTUV, where do you start, and how do you limit the risk in designing the autonomy architecture to meet such complex requirements?
The Leidos team's first step in risk reduction for ACTUV was to leverage code already written for less complex autonomous systems.
modular systems architecture allows for the main hull, bow, mast, keel and side hulls to be produced separately.

After enemy vessels are found, ACTUV
would be employed to follow them wherever they went without putting sailors in danger.
