Anduril Industries said today the U.S. Navy has selected the company to develop large underwater defense vehicles. Financial details were not released.
The vehicles are designed for long-range, persistent underwater sensing and payload delivery in contested environments, and will provide urgently needed capability to deter maritime threats around the world.
Separately, Costa Mesa-based Anduril introduced Iris, a family of airborne imaging and targeting sensors designed to autonomously detect and track hundreds of targets at long ranges in contested environments.
The combat applications include infrared search and tracking, missile warning, visualization, and targeting.
