Anduril Expands Autonomous Systems Portfolio Through Dive Technologies Acquisition

Anduril Industries has purchased Boston-based autonomous underwater vehicle manufacturer Dive Technologies in a strategy to add undersea coverage to the defense technology provider’s portfolio of unmanned systems.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed and the acquired company’s DIVE-LD platform can be tailored to match military requirements for undersea battlespace awareness, anti-submarine warfare and mine countermeasures missions, Anduril said Wednesday.

Dive Technologies designed its UAV to also support non-military work such as infrastructure monitoring, seabed mapping and oceanographic sensing. The startup applies large-format additive manufacturing or 3D printing approaches to produce DIVE-LD.

Gunderson Dettmer and Polsinelli acted as legal advisers to Anduril and Dive Technologies, respectively.

Anduril announced the acquisition nearly three weeks after U.S. Special Operations Command awarded the company a $967.6 million counter-unmanned aircraft system prototype contract.
