Mike Petters, CEO of Huntington Ingalls Industries, said the company expects the U.S. Navy to request more unmanned undersea vehicles in the future to meet the service's new mission requirements, USNI News reported Tuesday.

“Overall, we think unmanned space is going to fundamentally change the Navy going forward,“ Petters, a former Wash100 winner, said during the company's earnings call. “The intent to try to make ships more lethal, from the Navy standpoint, is something we're paying closer attention to.“

He added that the Navy and the U.S. Marine Corps should transform from “an operational concept perspective and then from a technology and platform perspective, and then all the way down to our training and recruiting perspective."
