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 the most versatile member of the REMUS AUVs. Its modular design enables us to easily reconfigure its sensors for mission specifics. It has a mission endurance of nearly 70 hours with speeds up to 5 knots at depths up to 600 meters. With its increased payload it has a range of 286 nautical miles. Just like our smaller REMUS-100 it has the ease of operation to be used with a laptop and very little auxiliary equipment.
The first REMUS 600 was developed at WHOI in 2003
