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
