“The two-man portable UUV provides the same data collection capabilities of larger UUVs, and can be deployed and recovered from piers, a rigid-hulled inflatable boat (RHIB) or other vessels of opportunity,” the release said.
The Bluefin-9 includes a removable data storage module (RDSM) which stores high-definition images, video and sonar data and delivers mission endurance of up to eight hours at a speed of 3 knots, and can reach speeds of 6 knots and dive to 200 meters, the company said.
