Riptide Expands Its UUV Product Line

Unmanned undersea vehicles (UUV) manufacturer Riptide Autonomous Solutions said it has added two new platform offerings to complement its micro-UUV launched in 2016.

The new 1-Man and 2-Man Portable UUVs use the same technical architecture, hydrodynamic hull shape and electronics as the original Micro-UUV. Drawing upon advanced manufacturing, modern electronics and open source concepts the larger Riptide vehicles will deliver the same flexible solution already favored by Micro-UUV users. The 1-Man Portable UUV offers a 7.5 inch (19 cm) diameter and base weight just over 60 pounds (27 kg) with a depth rating of 300 meters. The 2-Man Portable UUV has a 9.375 inch (24 cm) diameter and a base weight of roughly 120 pounds (55 kg) with a depth rating of 600 meters.
“Our new family of low logistics vehicles offer our users extensive flexibility for greater energy and payload volume while leveraging the proven benefits of the Micro-UUV design.” said Jeff Smith, President of Riptide.
