BAE Systems is bringing next-generation capabilities to the unmanned undersea vehicle (UUV) market. Our mission agnostic, modular system design enables easy modification for various development needs.
It’s not just what’s under the sea. It’s how you respond to it.
Our UUVs provide a sustainable and scalable solution for developers of autonomy and behaviors, power systems, subsea sensors, and new payloads. Click “Advanced maritime mission provider” below to learn more about our undersea mission system payloads, providing critical capabilities that include autonomy, navigation, SIGINT, acoustic and RF communications, sensor processing, RF EW, acoustic IFF, active acoustics, and more.
Unmatched UUV performance for most size, mission, and budget specs
Matching our unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) to the mission system capabilities specified by our customers starts with providing our small and medium class UUV designs in a range of mission-appropriate configurations and depth ratings. Our 9” diameter platform is recommended for missionization due to its large payload and power capacity, and ease of launch and recovery logistics.
Our 12" diameter model UUV-12 is in development and will launch with respect to the deployment timeline of its primary client, a branch of the U.S. Department of Defense (USDoD). We also build completely custom models. And no matter which models are called for, we have the expertise and resources to outfit them to meet any specified mission demands.
