HII’s REMUS 600M mine countermeasures (MCM) variant is a medium-class unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) that can dive to depths of 600 meters to collect high-resolution data in support of long-endurance defence missions. The REMUS 600 AUV was designed through funding from the Office of Naval Research to support the Navy’s growing need for operations requiring extended endurance, increased payload capacity, and greater operating depth. The REMUS 600 boasts the same proven software and electronic subsystems found in our highly successful REMUS 100 AUV, with a depth rating and increased capabilities that take autonomous operations to the next level.
The REMUS 600 is used by expeditionary warfare forces to conduct long-endurance MCM and port and harbour clearance down to 600 meters. Using high-resolution side scan sonar, the REMUS 600 surveys large areas autonomously, allowing operators to detect and classify mine-like objects during post-mission analysis. The REMUS 600 search and recovery (SAR) operations allow multiple launch and recovery options to be tailored to a wide variety of vessels. High-resolution side scan sonar and precision navigation provide highly accurate data to locate targets of interest, including downed aircraft and sunken ships.
The stability and versatility of the REMUS 600 allow numerous applications, including:
