According to a contract notice, Italy has funded the development of a UUV demonstrator under an effort dubbed 'Recon-UV'.

A new tender from the Italian MoD covers the construction of a technological demonstrator of a UUV system to support underwater testing.

Phase one of the contract is worth around €650,000 ($671,000), with the second and third phases worth €1.2 million and €585,869 respectively.

According to a notice on the official EU tenders database, work will be carried out by Engineering Ingegneria Informatica, the Interuniversity Center of Integrated Systems for the Marine Environment, and MDM Team - a Tuscany-based uncrewed underwater systems engineering company.

The contract was placed by Italy’s Directorate of Naval Armaments.
