The U.S. Navy has released a draft solicitation for a contracting opportunity for the development of a medium unmanned underwater vehicle to help the branch locate naval mines and collect oceanographic data,  Inside Defense reported Friday.

A presolicitation notice published March 30 says Naval Sea Systems Command is seeking multiple contractors to design and build an MUUV platform with a modular, open architecture design to perform mine countermeasures and autonomous oceanographic sensing operations.

The branch hosted an industry day in early December within the Washington, D.C., metro area.

Last month, 40 companies won positions on a 10-year, $982M contract to support the Navy’s unmanned surface vehicle family of systems.
