VIDEO: Bluefin SandShark Micro-AUVs Conduct Simulated Missions with a Bluefin-21 UUV

Published on December 14, 2017 by Nicholas Hoffman

In this simulated exercise, operators deploy two Bluefin SandSharks micro-AUVs from a larger, deep-water rated Bluefin-21 Unmanned Undersea Vehicle (UUV). The mission includes intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and neutralization of a potential threat. In August 2016, a General Dynamics Bluefin-21 launched multiple Bluefin SandShark™ micro-autonomous underwater vehicles (micro-AUV) as part of several capability demonstrations at the U.S. Navy’s Annual Naval Technology Exercises.
