General Dynamics (GD) Mission Systems has acquired Bluefin Robotics for an undisclosed amount, the company announced on 22 February.

US-based Bluefin Robotics manufactures unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs) for military and commercial applications. Following the close of the transaction, Bluefin Robotics will be absorbed into the maritime and strategic systems business line of GD Mission Systems.

Chris Marzilli, president, GD Mission Systems, said: ‘Bluefin’s advanced underwater technologies and products are perfectly aligned with our expertise in undersea system integration. We have long specialised in many of the technologies that are making UUVs increasingly effective, and have strong credentials integrating UUVs into naval platforms.

‘With the added capability to design and manufacture UUVs, combined with our commitment to speeding innovation to our customers, this acquisition positions us well to further support our US Navy customers.’
