REMUS 6000 Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV)

HII’s new generation REMUS 6000 has been redesigned to increase modular payload space, allowing integration of multiple advanced sensors. Reaching depths of 6,000 meters, this deep-water unmanned underwater vehicle can survey 98% of the ocean for a variety of applications. The REMUS 6000 is uniquely suited for search and recovery operations at significant depths and has been used to locate many famous World War II wrecks from 2017 to 2019. The discovery of the USS Indianapolis wreckage was found 5, 500 meters below the surface in the Philippine Sea 72 years after it went missing.


The REMUS 6000 AUV is Hydroid’s deep-water workhorse and has been designed to enable operations to water depths as great as 6000 meters. It can be configured to include a wide variety of payloads to meet specific mission requirements. With the ability to navigate up to 22 hours per mission, the REMUS 6000 provides wide area coverage and can be used for commercial, marine research and defence applications. The REMUS 6000 was used in the discovery of Air France Flight 447, a passenger flight that crashed in June 2009, and was also used in July 2010 to explore the site of the Titanic sinking.
