ARLINGTON, Va. — For the first time ever, the Large Displacement Unmanned Undersea Vehicle-Innovative Naval Prototype (LDUUV-INP) will be on display to the public during the Sea-Air-Space Exposition, at the Office of Naval Research (ONR) booth.
Chief of Naval Research Rear Adm. Mat Winter will hold a special informational session at the ONR booth from 12:45 to 1:15 p.m. EST on Tuesday, April 14, to discuss ONR technologies on display.
LDUUV-INP represents cutting-edge UUV research that will deliver game-changing capabilities to naval warfighters. This LDUUV-INP is the second version of the platform.
“Sea-Air-Space presents a great opportunity for us to highlight ONR’s contributions that are making a marked difference to our warfighters, to our Navy and Marine Corps, and the nation,” said ONR Executive Director Dr. Walter Jones. “Scientific leadership in autonomy and unmanned systems enabled the LDUUV-INP, which will strongly complement our existing undersea capabilities and platforms.”
Naval leaders at the expo will address the significant science and technology advancements that have taken place under the LDUUV-INP program, including leap-ahead capabilities in UUV endurance, power and autonomy.
