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 and Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (UUV / AUV) 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.
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 our Unmanned & Autonomous Underwater Vehicles can collect and relay intelligence data back to submarine crews operating in safer waters.
Bluefin Robotics Unmanned Underwater Vehicles
Our Bluefin Robotics UUVs and AUVs 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.
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.
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.
General Dynamics Demonstrates Advanced Mission Command and Control among Unmanned Underwater, Airborne and On-shore Assets at ANTX 2017
NEWPORT, R.I. - General Dynamics Mission Systems and General Dynamics Electric Boat demonstrated multiple mission command, control and communication capabilities connecting Bluefin Robotics’ unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV) and a third-party provided unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with a simulated AN/BYG-1 submarine combat control center ashore.
A General Dynamics systems engineer deploys a Bluefin SandShark Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) into the Charles River. This lightweight AUV can swim up to five knots and dive down to 200 meters. Amy is a senior systems engineer working at the General Dynamics Mission Systems facility in…
