FALL RIVER, Mass., June 17, 2020 — L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) announced today its new man-portable Iver4 580 unmanned undersea vehicle (UUV). The new Iver4 580 is the second vehicle in the Iver4 family of next-generation UUVs to address a wide variety of customer missions, including survey; multi-domain intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; anti-submarine warfare; seabed warfare and mine warfare.
Built with Iver4 advanced technology, the Iver4 580 features a full suite of sensors in a portable size (5.8-inch diameter and 82-inch length) and small mission footprint for rapid deployment from any vessel. It offers users a 200-meter depth system featuring sealed, hot-swappable battery sections that can be swapped without the need of a vacuum test, heading re-alignment, or special tools allowing the vehicle to get back on mission with just minutes of downtime.
Data recorded from the on-board sensor suite can be downloaded from the Iver4 580 at gigabit Ethernet speed further minimizing mission downtime. The Iver4 580 design maximizes in-water efficiency enabling the vehicle to travel at a speed of 4 knots and support longer missions.
“The Iver4 580 is the latest evolution in the Iver family of vehicles bringing mission-critical capability to underwater survey and intelligence operations in a portable package,” said Sean Stackley, President, Integrated Mission Systems. “L3Harris continues to advance industry leading capabilities in small diameter UUVs for our military and commercial customers.”
The Iver4 580 will be unveiled virtually on June 24 at 12:00 pm EDT. Register for the webinar here.
