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-9
The Bluefin-9 unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) provides unmatched high-resolution data, leading navigation, data processing and mission turnaround time in a two-man portable UUV.
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.
The Bluefin-9's tightly integrated commercial off-the-shelf sensors deliver best-in-class imagery and collect bathymetric and environmental data, including data on water currents, temperature, salinity and turbidity.
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.
