Aquabotix Enters R&D Partnership with US Navy
UUV Aquabotix Ltd has entered into a special purpose Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Division Newport.
Division Newport of NUWC is a Federal laboratory of the U.S. Department of Navy whose substantial purpose is the performance of research, development, and engineering. Under the CRADA signed between Aquabotix and the U.S. Navy, Aquabotix will gain access to the Narragansett Bay Test Facility (NBTF), including its ranges and personnel, to test and demonstrate Aquabotix’s SwarmDiver product and other relevant technologies for this United States Naval laboratory and other interested parties.
Whitney Million, Aquabotix’s CEO, commented, “We are honored to be co-operating with the United States Navy and believe that SwarmDiver can be a game changer for the U.S. and allied naval operations.”
