FALLS CHURCH, Va. Northrop Grumman Corporation’s µSAS (micro-sas) will be integrated onto L3Harris Technologies’ Iver4 Unmanned Undersea Vehicle (UUV) for a 12-month test period for the Defense Innovation Unit’s (DIU) Next Generation Small-Class UUV program.
The micro-sas is a low size, weight, and power, high-performance interferometric synthetic aperture sonar that intended to enable longer sorties and higher area coverage rates for UUV missions.
“The Northrop Grumman µSAS advanced imaging sonar is a minehunting force multiplier designed specifically for UUVs,” said Alan Lytle, vice president, undersea systems, Northrop Grumman.
