SRS ROV for US Navy

Strategic Robotic Systems (SRS) has been selected by the United States Navy to procure the company’s FUSION unmanned underwater vehicle.

The Navy will use the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for its future explosive ordnance disposal (EOD).

According to SRS, initial deliveries under the 5-year contract should start in the third quarter of 2019.

The SRS FUSION represents the next generation in expeditionary-capable, compact, remotely operated underwater systems. As a fully battery powered system the FUSION has an ultra-compact footprint, rapid setup and extended excursion capability. Advanced supervisory control, expandable payload bay and benchmark intuitiveness combine to enhance the warfighters field readiness, SRS explains.

SRS president, Jesse Rodocker, said: “FUSION is the culmination of many years spent developing ROV’s for military applications. Having been heavily involved in the design of the U.S. Navy’s previous underwater vehicle, it is a particular honor to see the next generation adopted into service. “

Listening to the operators and working alongside them has helped SRS understand the key requirements for effective EOD operations, and FUSION embodies all of that important learning. We look forward to continuing to develop the capability as new technologies become available and commit ourselves to the effective execution of this contract.”
