SAS 2015: Proteus dual mode underwater vehicle on display
The dual mode (manned or unmanned) Proteus vehicle (DMUV) is on display at the Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) stand at Sea-Air-Space 2015.
The DMUV was built by HII with the cooperation of Battelle and Bluefin Robotics and has completed over 400 hours at sea doing research and development with the navy. It is intended to help transport payloads long distances underwater either manned or unmanned.
In terms of usage Special Operations are looking for a Swimmer Delivery Vehicle and there has been some interest in the DMUV, but apparently they do not have a need for an autonomous capability.
