Submarine-Launched Unmanned Underwater Vehicles

As the underwater battlespace evolve, we see a growing involvement of submarine's operations in littoral waters where Unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) deployed from a submarine could be used as a force multiplier for submarines. The potential of a submarine launched UUV have been explored in the past and the efforts are projected to continue over the next 10 years.

This intelligence briefing will therefore look at the following points:

  • Past development efforts and challenges/restrictions associated with the submarine launched UUVs
  • US Navy programmes and other existing submarine launched UUVs
  • Notable concepts of UUV-capable submarine and launch and recovery solution
  • Market overview and opportunities of submarine launched UUVs over the next 10 years
