L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) has announced its new man-portable Iver4 580 unmanned undersea vehicle (UUV), the company said.
The new Iver4 580 is the second vehicle in the Iver4 family of next-generation UUVs to address a wide variety of customer missions, including survey; multi-domain intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; anti-submarine warfare; seabed warfare and mine warfare.
Built with Iver4 advanced technology, the Iver4 580 features a full suite of sensors in a portable size (5.8-inch diameter and 82-inch length) and small mission footprint for rapid deployment from any vessel. It offers users a 200-meter depth system featuring sealed, hot-swappable battery sections that can be swapped without the need of a vacuum test, heading re-alignment, or special tools allowing the vehicle to get back on mission with just minutes of downtime.
Data recorded from the on-board sensor suite can be downloaded from the Iver4 580 at gigabit Ethernet speed further minimizing mission downtime. The Iver4 580 design maximizes in-water efficiency enabling the vehicle to travel at a speed of 4 knots and support longer missions.
