(April 29, 2005 – Pocasset, MA) Hydroid Inc. announced today that they have recently received an order from the Belgian Defense for a REMUS Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) system.
Representatives from the Belgian Defense participated in REMUS trials in the Port of Rotterdam during 2004, and decided shortly after the successful trials to procure a system for evaluation.
The system that will be delivered to the Belgian Defense is a modular REMUS design, capable of incorporating a range of user selectable sensors, including a number of state of the art acoustic imaging systems.
Through funding support from the U.S. Office of Naval Research (ONR), Hydroid has re-designed the basic REMUS system to be highly modular and capable of adding a wide range of sophisticated sensor technologies.
The system designed for the Belgian Defense will be delivered later in 2005.
Hydroid Inc. holds the exclusive license from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution for the manufacture and further development of the REMUS Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) technology.
