Bluefin UUV Dives Under The Ice at U.S. Navy Exercise
During a U.S. Navy Exercise, MIT students and General Dynamics engineers deployed a modified Bluefin-21 unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) designed to carry a number of deep sea exploration sensor packages. The five-week exercise was used to research operational capabilities in the Arctic region and test the modified Bluefin-21 in extreme conditions under the ice.
Custom Solutions & Services
We offer numerous base UUV designs and batteries that can be customized for your mission and program requirements.
Engineering Services: Our engineers are experienced in investigating and offering solutions for newly identified unmanned underwater missions and applications. Our capabilities span the traditional engineering discipline and extend to prototype, design, testing and fielding.
Marine Operations Services: Our team has decades of collective experience in fielding, deploying and operating UUVs worldwide for a wide array of commercial, scientific, and defense customers.
The completely reengineered Bluefin-9 unmanned underwater vehicle combines high navigational accuracy, outstanding sonar resolution, and precision manufacturing to deliver defense, commercial and academic customers highly-detailed subsurface data in minutes rather than hours.
General Dynamics Mission Systems Demonstrates Cross-domain Command, Control and Communication Technology at ANTX 2018
At ANTX 2018, a General Dynamics Mission Systems-led team demonstrated cross-domain, multi-level command, control and communication (C3) among unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV), submarines and land-based mission operations centers.
The General Dynamics Mission Systems' Knifefish team successfully completed contractor trials for the U.S. Navy's Knifefish program, a mine countermeasure unmanned undersea vehicle.
