LONDON, Sept. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics Mission Systems today released the new Bluefin-12 autonomous unmanned underwater vehicle at Defense and Security Equipment International (DSEI) 2019. This new vehicle builds upon the proven Bluefin autonomy and uses shared Bluefin Robotics' core capabilities, increased mission modularity and embedded intelligence to complete users' long endurance, high-consequence and changing missions.

"The new Bluefin-12 provides superior design, high quality, excellent modularity and best-in-class reliability to deliver exceptional mission capability and range."

"We are proud to add the Bluefin-12 to our UUV family of products and to deliver both the Bluefin-12 and Bluefin-9 UUVs to Thales in support of the Royal Australian Navy's SEA 1778 program," Rogers said.
