The REMUS 300 programme served as the foundation for developing the Lionfish System. The United States Navy decided to go with the REMUS 300 as the official programme of record for the next generation of SUUVs early in 2022.

This contract, which Naval Sea Systems Command manages, covers the delivery and support of the Navy’s next-generation SUUVs, afloat, auxiliary support equipment, and engineering services. The vehicles, which will use the most advanced autonomous and unmanned technology, will carry out critical undersea missions for the Navy.
