Bids Sought for Navy Medium Unmanned Surface Vehicle Dev’t Contract

Jeff Brody

The U.S. Navy has started the bidding process for a project to develop a medium unmanned surface vehicle prototype and plans to name a winning contractor by the first quarter of the government’s 2020 fiscal year.

The service branch aims to build a pier-launched modular craft that would employ an open architecture and support autonomous navigation missions, Naval Sea Systems Command said Tuesday.

The development contract has options for production of additional USVs. Interested vendors have until Sept. 30 to submit their responses to the request for proposals, according to a FedBizOpps notice.

The Navy released information about MUSV specifications early in February and subsequently held an industry event to gather industry feedback on the draft requirements.
