The US Navy has placed an order for two Remus 300 unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) from Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII).

Each of the two-man-portable, small-class UUVs offer swappable energy modules that ensure up to 10, 20 or 30 hours of endurance. The open architecture and modularity allow the UUV to be tailored to specific mission requirements.

Delivery is scheduled for mid-2022.
