Areté is one of 40 contractors mentioned in February 2020’s Military & Aerospace Electronics Magazine as companies tapped by the U.S. Navy to develop systems and subsystems for next-generation unmanned surface vessels (USVs).
Areté is already the Commercial Transition Partner on the Mark 18 UUV Advanced Sensor Package, and looks to work with partners to further refine its sensing capabilities on the next-generation system.
Over the next five to eight years, these 40 companies will compete for individual delivery orders for
- Integrated unmanned surface vessels,
- USV propulsion systems,
- Sensor and sensor-processing payloads, and
- Other aspects of advanced USV design
