The Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) program seeks to develop and demonstrate an independently deploying unmanned surface vessel optimized to provide continuous overt trail of threat submarines. The program is architected to achieve three primary objectives:

1. Design, build, and demonstrate an experimental vessel based on clean sheet design approaches founded on the assumption that no person steps aboard at any point in its operating cycle, enabling beyond state-of-the-art platform performance characteristics.

2. Demonstrate the technical viability of an independently deploying unmanned naval vessel under sparse remote supervisory control to enable a new class of maritime system.

3. Demonstrate a game-changing ASW operational capability and facilitate rapid transition of that capability to the Navy in response to critical operational demand.

This announcement represents the FINAL solicitation for the ACTUV Phases 2 - 4 program.
