US Navy orders REMUS 300 from Huntington Ingalls Industries
Huntington Ingalls Industries has announced a US Navy order of two REMUS 300 unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs).
The delivery is scheduled to take place in mid-2022.
The two-man portable, small-class UUV offers swappable energy modules with up to ten, 20 or 30 hours of endurance and a max speed of up to five knots.
The open architecture and modularity allow REMUS 300 to be tailored to specific mission requirements and enable spiral development and upgrades as technology evolves.
The Remus 300 can be used for many applications, including: mine countermeasures down to 305m, search and recovery, rapid environmental assessment, marine archaeology and offshore oil and gas.
The optional scalable modular space is available for the integration of payloads to perform customer-defined missions, such as ISR and anti-submarine warfare.
The REMUS UUV is produced by Hydroid, a subsidiary of Huntington Ingalls Industries, which was acquired in 2020.
