Hydroid AUV passes critical design review
Hydroid Inc., a Bourne-based manufacturer of autonomous underwater vehicles, or AUVs, said that it has passed a critical design review to provide "littoral battlespace sensing" AUVs and associated technologies to the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, a unit of the US Navy known as SPAWAR.
The recognition of the critical design review is the next milestone in Hydroid's contract to provide SPAWAR with REMUS 600 AUVs equipped with technologies for meteorological and oceanographic data collection, Hydroid said in a press release.
The company recently made news when the Royal Netherlands Navy used one of its AUVs to find a missing World War I German submarine off the Dutch coast.
