The Royal Navy received a new autonomous vessel NavyX into its service. The project is named Madfox (Maritime Demonstrator For Operational eXperimentation).


It is derived from technology firm L3Harris’ Mast-13 vessel, which for the past 18 months has been operated by Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) on a series of trials with the Royal Navy. Over the next few months, NavyX will carry on its work with Un-crewed Surface Vessel (USV), while also examining how these vessels can deliver across the range of military operations including surveillance and force protection.
