(NationalInterest)  One of the first Navy lines of effort aimed at fielding a robotic submarine is the Extra Large UUV or XL-UUV program. Hungintgon Ingalls Institute (HII) is taking up a leading role in the Navy’s quest to field UUVs. “The Navy’s gone forward with this XL UUV program,” Petters said.
“We’ve actually been teamed with Boeing to participate in that program. And we are very, very excited about the chance to work with the company like Boeing that’s got a long history in this space. And I think they are excited that they have access to some of our technical capability as well.”
