BAE Systems’ Develops 6000 Meter Rated Underwater Unmanned Vehicle

BAE Systems’ Riptide division has developed the first prototype of a 6000 meter rated underwater unmanned vehicle (UUV).

This depth in a small UUV will allow unparalleled flexibility and cost efficiency by taking on missions unprecedented for the small class of UUVs, reducing the barriers to access the deep ocean, a BAE Systems statement said.

BAE acquired Riptide Autonomous Solutions a year ago. The Riptide family of UUVs includes three offerings: the 4.875” diameter (25 lbs.) micro, the 7.5" diameter (65 to 120 lbs.) 1MP (man-portable) unit and the 9" (9.375”) diameter (120 to 240 lbs.) 2MP.
