US Navy completed the testing of unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) GhostSwimmer based on Little Creek-Fort Story. GhostSwimmer is the latest in a series of innovative projects developed in the framework of the project «Silent NEMO».

In its form to a large machine like tuna, even when sailing simulates its movement. With a length of 1.5 meters and a weight of about 45 kg, GhostSwimmer design allows it to operate at depths ranging from 0.25 to 90 meters.

His bio-mimicry provides additional security when performing missions intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance of enemy objects and their inspection. Noise emissions GhostSwimmer, quieter than the propeller of the ship of the same size as it moves due to vibrations of the caudal fin.
The robot is able to operate autonomously for a long time thanks to the powerful battery - but they can also be controlled using a laptop over a 150-meter cable. Cable length is sufficient to transmit the information during an inspection of the hull - but if the robot operates autonomously, it will periodically emerge to convey the collected data.

The project «Silent NEMO» conducted experiments that explore the possibilities of using biomimetic unmanned underwater vehicles designed to manage innovation Cell (CIRC) Navy. CIRC was established in 2012 to provide young engineers to quickly identify and implement new technologies to address the pressing problems of the Navy.

A similar project is being implemented in the company "Boston Engineering." Her development, ichthyoid robot «BIOSwimmer» also has a length of 1.5 meters, and is designed to detect contraband hidden in the ship's hull. For this mission, "fish" is equipped with a complex array of sensors, and has already demonstrated its work last year on the battleship "Texas" in the harbor of Houston, Texas.

robotic fish found several models of contraband packages of different sizes, placed in hard to reach places testers hull of the battleship.
