The Large Displacement Unmanned Underwater Vehicles Innovative Naval Prototype technology BAA will develop the critical technologies needed to enable UUVs to operate and survive in the littorals for 70+ days. The LDUUV is a pier- launched and recovered UUV (without the need for ship-launch or recovery) with the capability to transit in the open ocean and conduct over-the-horizon missions in littoral waters. This system will enable the extension of Navy platform sensing capability over the horizon and extend its influence. The creation of this UUV is intended to act as a significant force multiplier for the US Navy and will help close Warfighter gaps in a cost-effective manner. Two technology areas have been identified as critical to achieving this goal. These areas are Autonomy and Endurance Technologies.

This BAA research opportunity is divided into two separate sections, one for each of these technology areas. Proposers may submit to one or more of the technology area announcements. A separate standalone proposal is required for each technology area. A follow-on BAA may be issued for integration of the core components developed under this BAA


This background is provided for informational purposes only. Greater breadth of mission profiles for current and future Naval Unmanned Undersea Vehicles require longer propulsion systems that extend the current capability of these vehicles from tens of hours to operability of the system for weeks to months .


Briefs that describe the Navy need, current state-of-the-art, and program goals from ONR Industry Day for this BAA, held on 10 March 2011, are available on the ONR web site at: https://secure.onr.navy.mil/events/docs/734_LDUUV%20INP%20Industry%20Day_posted%20version.pdf. Appendix A provides additional links of interest.
