REMUS Sea Launcher
Autonomous Deployment and Recovery of UUVs from a USV
The REMUS Sea Launcher is a transformational capability that links Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) and Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) operations. Sea Launcher has been developed to meet the requirements for further increments of the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) Mine Countermeasures (MCM) Mission Package.
The REMUS Sea Launcher is very lightweight, scalable and adaptable for a variety of UUVs. It is compact and mobile enough to be fitted into smaller surface ships (less than 2m of freeboard). With bolt-on/bolt-off flexibility it can be quickly adapted into many ships with standard interfaces for power and control.
Two technologies converge to provide the complete Sea Launcher system. The REMUS docking station and a Launch and Recovery System (LARS). By combining the two technologies, fully autonomous launch and recovery of REMUS vehicles can be completed from a USV.
