Leidos Tests Autonomous Tech for DARPA's Anti-Sub Warfare Program - top government contractors - best government contracting event

leidos_purpleA maritime autonomy system that Leidos developed with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has taken its maiden self-guided voyage.

Leidos installed and tested its autonomous technology on a surrogate boat as part of DARPA’s Anti-Submarine Warfare Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel development program, the company said Monday.

DARPA aims to build a maritime vehicle that can operate under sparse remote control and comply with at-sea collision avoidance standards.

The ACTUV surrogate worked to avoid buoys, obstacles, land, shoal water and other ships without human intervention while sailing around Gulfport and Pascagoula, Mississippi, according to Leidos.

Leidos is scheduled to finish construction of the Sea Hunter ACTUV platform in late fall.
