Huntington Ingalls Industries has announced the commercial release of its REMUS 300 Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV). This new, open architecture, small-class UUV can dive to depths of 305m (1,000 feet) and has endurance options of up to 30 hours.
Built on the REMUS Technology Platform, the REMUS 300 has compact and efficient core electronics, advanced autonomy and a common operating system that allows for interoperability with the entire REMUS family of systems. Its open architecture design and modularity enable integration of the latest hardware and software, with an optional hardware development kit and software development kit to enable third-party integration.
The REMUS 300 design incorporates feedback from hundreds of REMUS 100 users and provides the ability to exchange payloads, allowing application flexibility. Common applications include:
- mine countermeasures
- hydrographic survey
- rapid environmental assessment
- search and recovery
- marine research
Modular energy sections allow for field replacement of 1.5, 3.0 or 4.5 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion batteries enabling up to 10, 20 or 30 hours of endurance.
More than 500 REMUS UUVs have been sold to 25 countries worldwide. Standard configurations of the REMUS 300 can now be acquired internationally and commercially, with orders being accepted now for delivery in 2022.
