What: David Shane will present “Demonstrating the Effects Web of Non-Conventional UUVs in the ‘Last Mile’ with Implications for the Grey Zone” at the 2020 Undersea Warfare Conference. Mr. Shane is a project manager and business development lead for Boston Engineering’s Advanced Systems Group (ASG).
Date and Time: September 22-23, 2020 — Virtual (Register here)
Presentation Abstract: Boston Engineering’s non-conventional underwater vehicles can transform traditional UUV tasking based upon vehicle maneuverability and ease of payload integration and deployment, providing a range of potential effects in the ‘last mile’. The presentation will:
- Highlight non-conventional unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs)
- Outline capabilities of Boston Engineering’s maritime profiling devices
- Detail an opportunity gap related to currently deployed unmanned vehicles, their ability to access congested and contested areas, and possible effects
- Preview a demonstration of non-conventional UUV and maritime profiling device collaboration in a VSW operating area to support ‘last mile’ operations
