HII's Proteus demos battle space capabilities

23rd August 2017 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) has demonstrated the performance of its Proteus dual-mode undersea vehicle as part of the US Navy-hosted Advanced Naval Technology Exercise (ANTX) in August.

Proteus, developed by HII and Battelle, is designed to deliver payloads, such as divers or smaller UUVs, at distances of hundreds of miles in either manned or unmanned mode. 

During ANTX a range of aerial, surface and underwater vehicle advance mission capability demonstrations were carried out, while communicating real-time mission performance to remote operations headquarters, using technology from a number of developers.

For the underwater mission segment, Proteus entered a contested battlespace and delivered and launched three smaller UUVs with unique roles. Following the launch, Riptide’s micro-UUVs and Northrop Grumman’s Remus UUV successfully executed mission plans using their onboard sensors and payloads to investigate and prepare the contested battlespace.

Ross Lindman, director of operations, Undersea Solutions Group, said: 'ANTX provided us an excellent opportunity to demonstrate Proteus’ capabilities to navy leadership, the navy technical community and our industry partners as we work to meet the navy's future requirements.'
