MELBOURNE, Australia — L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX), in collaboration with underwater systems partner Marine Tech Systems (MTS), has demonstrated live underwater autonomy capabilities during the 2021 Winterfest at Lake Saint Clair in Tasmania, Australia.
L3Harris was a key participant in this year's Winterfest event, August 3-6, demonstrating its world-class Iver Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) conducted by MTS. AMC Search, the training and consultancy division of the Australian Maritime College, hosted its annual Autonomous Maritime System (AMS) event at Lake Saint Clair to conduct individual and collaborative capabilities while fostering and developing relationships amongst Australian AMS users within academia, defence and industry.
“Our relationship with MTS and its sister company, Blue Ocean Monitoring of Western Australia, enables us to help AMC Search further understand autonomous undersea operations,” said Alan Clements, Managing Director, Australian Operations, L3Harris. “This is an opportunity to showcase the outstanding versatility and reliability of the Iver family of AUVs from L3Harris.”
The Iver's modular open systems architecture (MOSA) flexibility allows rapid configuration to leverage the newest sensor and communications payloads. The MOSA approach enables future initiatives like the integrated undersea surveillance system where capabilities must be introduced into operations at the speed of relevance.
The Iver AUV systems are employed in a wide array of commercial and military operations around the globe, from autonomous surveys to mine countermeasures and anti-submarine warfare missions.
A leader in unmanned and autonomous maritime vehicles and solutions, L3Harris has delivered more than 350 Ivers to defense and commercial customers worldwide. L3Harris’ autonomous vehicles come in all shapes and sizes, serving a variety of military, security, offshore energy and scientific missions.
