Riptide Displays Deep-rated UUV at Sea-Air-Space

During Sea-Air-Space in National Harbor, Md., Riptide Autonomous Solutions displayed a new variant of its unmanned undersea vehicle (UUV) product line. This particular vehicle is a deep-rated version to support acoustic telemetry research programs. The deep UUV is rated for 1,500 meters depth but still only 7.5 inches in diameter. Its payloads include CTD, acoustic modem and a custom towed acoustic receiver array. With industry leading low power hotel load this system can still deliver over 48 hours of endurance for field testing. Dan Lawrence, leading the effort for Riptide, noted, “The

Saab Develops Underwater Anti-IED Robot

Designed to combat below-the-surface terrorism, Sea Wasp is the latest generation remotely operated vehicle (ROV) from defense and security company Saab.   Presented at the Navy League’s Sea-Air-Space Exposition in National Harbor, Md., Sea Wasp has been engineered to relocate, identify and neutralize underwater improvised explosive devices (IEDs). While most underwater IED threats are disposed of manually by trained explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) divers, Sea Wasp is operated remotely by two-person teams from the surface, allowing operators to keep a safe distance from the explosives.
