U.S. Navy awards contract to Huntington Ingalls for REMUS 300 unmanned underwater vehicle

The U.S. Navy announced it has reached an agreement with America’s largest military shipbuilding company Huntington Ingalls for two REMUS 300 unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs).

“REMUS UUVs have been used by the U.S. Navy for their defense operations for more than 20 years,” said Duane Fotheringham, president of the Unmanned Systems business group in HII’s Technical Solutions division. “We are pleased to provide them with the new REMUS 300 to support their critical national security missions.”

The two-man portable, small-class UUV offers swappable energy modules with up to 10, 20 or 30 hours of endurance. The open architecture and modularity allow REMUS 300 to be tailored to specific mission requirements and enable spiral development and upgrades as technology evolves.
