“The contract calls for General Dynamics to provide five new Black Pearl UAVs; two side-scan sonars; upgraded tail and nose sections, and spare parts. The Black Pearl UUV supports Navy research programs in anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and mine countermeasures.
The contract asks General Dynamics to provide two-way Iridium SATCOM to the Black Pearl UUV; alter the unmanned submersible’s payloads bay; determine the best way to accommodate side-scan and multi-beam sonar; and manufacture new UUVs and control systems, tail sections, and batteries.”
