The branch made the selection after a rapid prototyping initiative that ran for two years and will move the Lionfish SUUV program forward with UUV production and testing efforts over the next year, HII said Wednesday.

Remus 300 is designed as a man-portable vehicle with an open architecture and to perform critical underwater missions in support of distributed maritime operations.

Andy Green, an executive vice president and president of HII’s mission technologies division and a 2022 Wash100 Award winner, said the selection of Remus 300 as a program of record is an important milestone in supporting the unmanned strategy of the Navy and its allies and the small UUV will deliver capabilities that are key to the service branch’s mission.

The Defense Innovation Unit oversaw the procurement using other transaction authority under the commercial solutions opening process.
