Aquabotix is to make it’s first sale to the US Naval Undersea Warfare Centre (NUWC) to support explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) detection missions.

In a recent ASX announcement, Aquabotix Technology said it has been awarded US$78,000 in non-dilutive hardware integration funding from the US Navy's NUWC to support unexploded ordnance detection missions for the US Navy.

After delivery, this solution will be incorporated into Aquabotix’s key product SwarmDiver or other unmanned underwater vehicles manufactured by Aquabotix, to support unexploded ordnance detection missions by the US Navy and allied forces.

"Aquabotix’s products are the platform for the solution to this immediate military need, and we look forward to this first phase of our co-operation with the Navy, and to fully productising our solution in a range of versions tailored for different uses," said Aquabotix chief executive Whitney Million.

Detection and neutralisation of unexploded ordnance is one of many uses for SwarmDiver and the company is actively pursuing multiple opportunities for a range of uses and modifications for the system to be used with the various branches of the US military.  

This comes on the back of a US$125,000 contract signed between Aquabotix's wholly-owned US subsidiary and the US Navy's Naval Supply Systems Command in 2017.
