What Is It?
The Large Displacement Unmanned Undersea Vehicle (LDUUV) is an unmanned vehicle that enables persistent sensing to increase the influence and capability of the Navy.
How Does It Work?
The LDUUV program will develop fully autonomous, long-endurance, land-launched UUVs capable of operating near shore. It will extend and augment the current Navy platform capability.
What Will It Accomplish?
The LDUUV program will develop new air independent energy systems and core vehicle technologies to extend UUVs endurance into months of operation time. Advanced autonomy and sensing will enable operation in the cluttered littoral environment.
