By combining best-in-class hydrodynamics, ultra-low power processing, and game changing new energy technology, BAE Systems brings next-generation capabilities to the unmanned undersea vehicle (UUV) market. Our mission agnostic, modular system design enables easy modification for various development needs. This advanced design is optimized for high efficiency, with the best hydrodynamic signature in its class.
It’s not just what’s under the sea. It’s how you respond to it.
Our Riptide family of autonomous UUVs provides a sustainable, scalable, and affordable solution for developers of autonomy and behaviors, power systems, subsea sensors, and new payloads. The industry-leading range, endurance, and flexibility of the platforms bring these technologies to new depths, enabling greater awareness, deeper insights, and mission dominance under the sea.

Unmatched UUV performance for most size, mission, and budget specs
- Micro-UUV® – 4.875” diameter, 25 lbs. base weight
- UUV-7 – 7.5" diameter, 65 to 120 lbs. base weight
- UUV-9 – 9.375” diameter, 120 to 240 lbs. base weight
Our new 12" diameter model UUV-12, is now 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 can 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.
