L3Harris Technologies, in collaboration with underwater systems partner Marine Tech Systems (MTS), has demonstrated live underwater autonomy capabilities during the 2021 Winterfest at Lake St Clair in Tasmania.
L3Harris was participating in this year's Winterfest event, demonstrating its Iver Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) conducted by MTS.
AMC Search, the training and consultancy division of the Australian Maritime College, hosted its annual Autonomous Maritime System (AMS) event at Lake St Clair.
“Our relationship with MTS and its sister company, Blue Ocean Monitoring of Western Australia, enables us to help AMC Search further understand autonomous undersea operations,” said Alan Clements, Managing Director, Australian Operations, L3Harris. “This is an opportunity to showcase the outstanding versatility and reliability of the Iver family of AUVs from L3Harris.”
The Iver uses a modular open systems architecture, which enables future initiatives like the integrated undersea surveillance system where capabilities must be introduced into operations at the speed of relevance.
L3Harris' Iver AUV systems are employed in a wide array of commercial and military operations around the globe, from autonomous surveys to mine countermeasures and anti-submarine warfare missions.
