USA – General Dynamics opens new unmanned underwater vehicle manufacturing center (Defense News)

General Dynamics Mission Systems, focused on moving its Knifefish unmanned underwater vehicle through low-rate initial production, has opened a new UUV manufacturing and assembly facility here. The company formally opened the UUV center of excellence in an Aug. 13 ceremony at its Taunton manufacturing site, which since 1987 has built systems for the U.S. Army and other customers. The Knifefish UUV was previously built at the company’s facility in Quincy, Mass., but the work has outgrown the facility as General Dynamics juggles building the Knifefish, engineering and backfitting improvements and building smaller UUVs in the Bluefin family of systems for customers like the Royal Australian Navy.
