The U.S. Navy awarded Aerojet Rocketdyne a $1.6 million contract to mature a power and energy management system to remotely recharge underwater unmanned vehicles (UUVs) while undersea. The company will mature and demonstrate the system's software to help schedule UUVs that need wireless recharging. The system will support longer UUV travels and help conceal the vehicles' presence. The company designed the platform for UUVs to upload data and download orders without the need to travel to a port or surface ship.
