General Dynamics autonomous Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) are designed for a variety of missions — including intelligence gathering, mine-hunting, scientific exploration, and ship hull inspection — providing an accurate picture under the surface.
Carlo Zaffanella, our vice president and general manager of Maritime and Strategic Systems, discusses how General Dynamics engineers are building smarter UUVs for the naval missions of the future. Some of these advancements include:
- Connecting UUVs with other vessels using command & control systems
- Integrating the latest commercial technology, including sonars
- Leveraging machine learning & AI algorithms
