ACTUV Phase II

Description:
Task Image Right Shadow
Bottom Shadow
DARPA’s Anti-Submarine Warfare Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) program is developing an independently deployed unmanned surface vessel optimized to provide continuous overt tracking of submarines. The program objective is to demonstrate the technical viability of an independently deployed unmanned naval vessel under sparse remote supervisory control to robustly track quiet, modern diesel electric submarines. SAIC is the prime for this DARPA contract.
JPL is tasked to provide support to the autonomy capabilities of the ACTUV. In particular, JPL will support motion and mission planning and also provide the health management capabilities for the robotic platform during its 75-day mission.
