The US Navy’s new surface mine countermeasure (MCM) unmanned undersea vehicle (UUV), named Knifefish, has completed all stages of formal sea acceptance testing (SAT).
The tests were conducted off the coast of Boston using navy mine test targets and included a variety of undersea, MCM operational scenarios in multiple simulated mine fields.
Following the successful SAT, the Knifefish system will begin developmental tests and operational assessment evaluations.
Knifefish is a medium-class MCM UUV intended for deployment from the navy's Littoral Combat Ship and other navy vessels.
