March 2, 2023 – HII is a global engineering and defense technologies provider and recognized worldwide as America’s largest shipbuilder. With a 135-year history of trusted partnerships in advancing U.S. national security, HII delivers critical capabilities ranging from the most powerful and survivable naval ships ever built, to unmanned systems, ISR and AI/ML analytics.
HII leads the industry in mission-driven solutions that support and enable an all-domain force. HII creates advanced unmanned solutions for defense, marine research and commercial applications. Serving customers in more than 30 countries, HII provides design, autonomy, manufacturing, testing, operations and sustainment of unmanned systems, including unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) and unmanned surface vessels (USVs).
With the goal of further improving the autonomous capabilities of its vehicles, HII has selected Voyis Imaging Systems as the standard camera option for all REMUS UUVs (REMUS 100/300/620/6000).
Voyis has developed the Recon UUV module, consisting of a highly advanced 4K stills camera and extremely efficient, high output external light bar, that enhances all REMUS platforms imaging capabilities in any operational situation. The Recon camera module offers extremely crisp stills imagery with on-the-sensor data processing for real-time, highly optimized datasets that improve in mission autonomy and analysis capabilities. These enhancements include improving image quality using image undistortion, true color correction, and image light leveling for consistent, actionable datasets available in-mission.
With Voyis cameras, navies are capable of completing the identification stage of MCM (mine countermeasure) operations, and improve target localization for neutralization/recovery completely submerged using REMUS platforms, improving operational covertness and efficiency. The high resolution imagery captured with Voyis’ Recon module provide increased confidence in subsea missions, ensuring REMUS customers receive safe, reliable, and efficient operations.
