In addition to the conventional operation inside AIP submarines, the compact module design also supports the integration of individual BZM evo modules into unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs
Engineering services will be used for developing and studying UUV
subsystems and concepts initially developed under the Extra Large Unmanned Undersea Vehicle (XLUUV) program, including navigational capabilities, autonomy, and payload deployment.
"Adding Riptide's technological capabilities will position us to provide customers unmatched flexibility by offeringa family of UUVs
and integrated payload solutionscapable of supporting a variety of critical missions," said Terry Crimmins, president of BAE Systems Electronic Systems.
"Your cost curve starts to change" as USVs and UUVs
are substituted for large manned platforms, he said.
courts must strengthen these privacy protections before UUV
can perform several important missions (for example, surveillance, mine countermeasures, plume source localization, hull inspection), which motivate a high demand for robust UUV
Navy began deploying underwater charging stations for unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs
The General Dynamics team demonstrated capabilities for real-time, two-way communications from the AN/BYG-1 control center to change the mission Bluefin SandShark(TM) UUV
, via a third-party UAV while the Bluefin SandShark was operating in the water.
Based in Somerville, Massachusetts, Open Water Power is developing safe and high-energy-density undersea power generation technologies for use by Unmanned Undersea Vehicles (UUVs
) and other maritime platforms.
