BAE Systems has joined forces with Canadian company Cellula Robotics to develop a technology demonstrator for its extra-large autonomous underwater vehicle (XLAUV) that it plans to showcase by late 2024.

Under the project, BAE Systems is planning to demonstrate the capabilities developed for its Herne XLAUV concept on one of Cellula Robotics’ Solus underwater vehicles in trials that are set to take place at a facility on the south coast of England in September 2024.

Speaking to Janes at the DSEI exhibition in London on 13 September, Tom O’Neill, business development, BAE Systems Maritime Underwater, said the initial trials would focus on intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) payloads.

“The aim of what we’re trying to do in September is to get something in the water as quickly as possible, because it’s not until you start experimenting and having a play with these vehicles that navies can really identify where the gaps are,” he said.
