The Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) exercises contract options for specially configured REMUS systems

(January, 2006 – POCASSET, MA)  Hydroid, LLC announced today that NAVSEA has recently exercised options against contract N00174-03-D-0018, awarded to Hydroid in 2003 to design and fabricate a prototype system to meet US Navy operational requirements and in accordance with stringent Navy specifications.

Kevin McCarthy, Hydroid’s vice president stated “The modified REMUS 100 vehicle will be utilized for Search-Classify-Map (SCM) by US Naval forces in conducting Very Shallow Water Mine Countermeasures (VSW MCM) operations.  The custom configuration, named “Swordfish” will be capable of performing low visibility VSW exploration and reconnaissance in support of amphibious landing, MCM operations, and hydrographic mapping in the very shallow water zone.”

The production contract has a six year period of performance from 2005 through 2010, with a total contract ceiling of approximately $32,000,000.  Hydroid delivered a prototype “Swordfish” system to the US Navy in 2004.  After an extensive engineering and operational testing phase the Navy exercised the contract options for production units late in 2005.   Hydroid will be delivering two Swordfish systems, consisting of six vehicles and supporting equipment and spares to the Naval Explosive Ordinance Disposal Technology Division in the spring and early summer of 2006.

Hydroid, LLC holds the exclusive license from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution for the manufacture and further development of the REMUS Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) technology.
