COLLECTING DATA FROM THE OCEAN FLOOR WHILE KEEPING HUMANS OUT OF HARM'S WAY
Although 71 percent of the earth is covered by water, much of the area beneath the surface is still essentially uncharted. Our Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) are designed to survey the ocean and conduct a variety of missions including mine-hunting, intelligence gathering, scientific exploration, and ship hull inspection - all without putting humans any further into harm's way.
The Redesigned Bluefin-12 UUV
The Bluefin™-12 is a lightweight medium-class unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) designed to deliver mission critical data and complete operators' high-consequence and changing missions. The Bluefin-12 is equipped with a suite of core sensors, embedded intelligent capabilities, and powerful on-board data processing designed for defense, commercial and academic underwater missions.
Knifefish — A U.S. Navy Mine-Hunting UUV
Knifefish is an Unmanned Undersea Vehicle designed for deployment off the U.S. Navy's Littoral Combat Ships. It will be used to locate and identify underwater mines, protecting ships and sailors by operating as an off-board sensor while the host ship stays outside the minefield.
Bluefin Robotics Unmanned Underwater Vehicles
Our Bluefin Robotics UUVs are designed for defense, commercial and scientific customers worldwide. These underwater vehicles can dive up to 14,000 feet below the ocean's surface while collecting data from the sea floor.
Vehicles Designed For The Future Undersea Battlespace
The world of undersea warfare is changing. The United States and allies need to fight and win in contested environments.
Watch how a cross-domain collaboration of manned and unmanned underwater vehicles and systems can be used to identify and eliminate potential threats.
