The US Navy has awarded defence companies Boeing and Lockheed Martin contracts to develop a large submersible dubbed the Orca Extra-Large Unmanned Underwater vehicle (XLUUV). This contract will have the two companies develop all the required data for the project. Lockheed Martin has been given $43.2m (£32.7m) and Boeing $42.3m to design their own versions of Orca. One of them will win the contract and deliver five prototypes to the Navy for testing by 2020, says the report.
