The 1000 Nautical Mile UUV

A 1000 nautical mile UUV may sound like fiction, but Riptide is making this a reality through their partnership with Open Water Power, producer of an extremely high energy density and safe aluminium seawater battery. Riptide’s Micro UUV already features best in class endurance – 48 hours running at 2-3 knots in a  standard configuration – but with the addition of Open Water Power’s aluminum seawater battery endurance is increased 10x. For more about Open Water Power, take a look at the Economist article featuring their technology here.
