USMC moves forward with Diver Reconnaissance Vehicle project

02 July 2014

The US Marine Corps (USMC) is discussing with industry the likely acquisition of a two-man diver propulsion device with integrated navigation and hydrographic survey capabilities to support sub-surface amphibious reconnaissance missions.

More than 200 battery-powered Diver Reconnaissance Vehicles (DRVs) - intended for deployment with combatant dive teams from warships, small surface craft, submarines, and fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft - could eventually be procured under plans released by Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC).

However, an anticipated draft request for proposals (RfP) in June did not materialise; instead, MCSC's Product Manager Reconnaissance and Amphibious Raids office will host a series of DRV industry days on 22-24 July to facilitate dialogue with potential vendors.
