Kongsberg’s US-based AUV manufacturer, Hydroid, has received an order for a ‘New Generation’ REMUS 6000 AUV from the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science Technology (JAMSTEC).

The AUV order is a part of the strategic innovation promotion program (SIP): Innovative Technology for Exploration of Deep Sea Resources.

This initiative is within the framework of the cross-ministerial programs undertaken by the Cabinet Office of Japan.

The New Generation REMUS 6000 is said to be based on the proven legacy vehicle design and features a modular architecture that allows for the addition of multiple payloads including sensor packages, forward fins and additional battery sections. In addition, new low-power core electronics and a hydrodynamic hull design increase endurance for longer missions.

JAMSTEC representative said they strongly believe that the New Generation REMUS 6000 will bring valuable results to the SIP and that JAMSTEC expects Hydroid to provide strong support for the program.
