Large Displacement Unmanned Undersea Vehicle (LDUUV)- Experts To Report On October 16, 2013

The rise of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is driving the development on unmanned technologies in other areas.  Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are becoming so commonplace that the FAA is hard-pressed to come up with regulations to control their operations.

Unmanned marine vehicles, meanwhile, are becoming a hot technology topic, as military researchers push a program forward to develop a long-endurance unmanned underwater submarine.

The experts are scheduled to report on this project on October 16 at Alion Science and Technology Inc.

On the schedule of the briefings:

LDUUV vision and missions

program schedule


technology risks and payoff

technology development and transfer



testing requirements

Q & A session

  1. I would offer that a more cost-effective approach would be that, instead of LDUUV’s, permanent underwater platforms with an array of acoustic sensors be built and strategically situated into the ocean side of our continental shelf from Maine to Mexico, and Alaska to Baja California for ISR. And, that submarine-launched and controlled UUV’s continue to be modernized to keep up with state-of-the-art technologies—not only for recon and surveillance, but for weapons delivery and guidance.
