NEWPORT NEWS, Va. Shipbuilder Huntington Ingalls Industries reported that the U.S. Navy has ordered two REMUS 300 unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) for use in national-security missions.
The small-format, two-person UUV is portable and uses swappable energy modules with up to 10, 20, or 30 hours of endurance. The REMUS 300's open architecture and modularity enable users to tailor the crafts to specific mission requirements and mean that the crafts will be upgradeable as technology evolves.
The Navy is expected to take delivery of the craft in mid-2022.
