GDMS press release
The repurposed production room at Normal Dynamics Mission Systems’ Taunton facility will give producing, assembly, integration and screening capabilities for Typical Dynamics Mission Systems’ Knifefish and Bluefin Robotics UUVs. Knifefish is a medium-course Mine Countermeasure (MCM) UUV that presents enhanced mine-looking capacity by detecting, classifying and determining the two buried mines and mines in substantial clutter environments. The company’s household of Bluefin Robotics solutions is composed of UUVs and similar technologies that deliver an array of underwater sensor capabilities for defense, business and scientific clients around the world.
The UUV middle of excellence will use a portion of Taunton’s 500,000+ sq. toes facility. In addition to the UUV center of excellence, the Taunton facility develops quite a few communications abilities for the U.S. Military as nicely as delivers engineering, production and manufacturing aid for a lot of Common Dynamics Mission Programs plans.
“Opening this producing and assembly facility lets us to leverage the highly competent and extremely experienced Taunton workforce. This skill established found in our Taunton workers is particularly the variety of knowledge we will need to manufacture remarkably responsible UUVs.”
“We have expanded our maritime operations to contain the Taunton UUV Production and Assembly Centre of Excellence to generate our present ideal in course smaller and medium UUVs and make it possible for for added growth house for development on long term UUV packages of all sizes. This area was particularly chosen to deliver supplemental ability that will permit for larger sized scaling and optimization of UUV manufacturing with objective-built production cells, fixtures, and particular examination tools, whilst retaining proximity to our Bluefin Robotics Engineering Workforce in Quincy.”
