Indian Navy issues RFIs for Unmanned Surface & Underwater Vessels


The Indian Navy has issued two separate requests for information (RFIs) for unmanned underwater and surface vessels.

The RFI for unmanned surface vessels (USVs) indicate a requirement for 12 vehicles with replaceable mission modules and a simulator that can assist in training for a variety of roles, including mine countermeasures (MCM) and anti-submarine warfare (ASW) missions. Each vehicle should be no longer than 12 m.

Meanwhile, the RFI for submerged systems calls for eight high endurance autonomous underwater vehicles (HEAUVs) of modular design with dedicated mission modules for operations that also include MCM, ASW, and oceanographic data collection, and one simulator.
