Riptide Autonomous Solutions and Draper Deliver Maritime Open Architecture Autonomy

Riptide Autonomous Solutions and Draper have agreed to implement maritime open architecture autonomy (MOAA) on all Riptide unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs) delivered to the US government. Draper developed MOAA for the US government as an extensible open architecture framework for autonomous mission controllers for autonomous undersea vehicles (AUVs). MOAA capabilities have been demonstrated at-sea on multiple AUV classes with capabilities applicable to various undersea mission areas. This work represents millions of dollars of investment and decades of research and development. Approval Draper has requested and received approval from the Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division Newport (NUWC-NPT) to provide MOAA as... (read more)
