AUV-RS 'Smart' Unmanned Underwater Combat System...

Five different models of varying sizes. At least one of the models is capable of deploying destructive payload. As seen in the photo below, it can deploy missiles to attack surface ships, to detonate mines. It can even deploy payload that pops onto the surface to communicate with satellites. What it isn't clear to me is whether the featured payloads also belong in the same AUV-RS family.



AUV-RS family is a joint-project between the military and the private sector. Interestingly, it has no rudder or movable control surfaces, making it low-observable and low drag. Fixed stabilizers are mounted on the nose. It features four highly-efficient propellers that also serve to steer the vessel, making it quiet and maneuverable. It's capable of traverse in reverse, fixed-position hovering, rotating in any direction while remaining in a fixed position, etc. Four prototypes are undergoing testing at

. Missions include underwater surveying, environmental surveying, intelligence gathering, anti-submarine warfare, mine-clearing, etc.

A few additional points... Due to the AUV-RS's unique propulsion system, it has capabilities not available to conventional unmanned systems:
- 360-degree azimuth scan.
- Can be silently deployed by simply lowering it into the water tail first.
- High 'pitch' agility.
- Quad-propeller assembly with 'vector-thrust'.
- Ultra-high stability at low speeds.

Not exactly UUV but unmanned
The 702 Institute and the 716 Institute of the Chinese naval group CSIC launched the JARI-USV autonomous combat drone on 21 August. It is about 15 meters long and displaces 20 tons.

Isn't there a USV thread?

With the launch at an undisclosed location and without sea trials, the JARI drone boat attained initial combat capability, CSIC said in a statement, acknowledging that further testing was required for the USV to achieve fully autonomous capability. A prototype

sea trials in 2018.


The 15 m (49 ft) JARI boat has a 4.8m beam (width) and displaces 20 tons. The water-jet powered USV can reach 42 knots and has a range of around 500 nautical miles (925 km).

JARI’s modular design enables a range of tasks including air defense, anti-ship and anti-submarine missions. The boat is

with a phased array radar system, variable-depth sonar, satellite communications and electro-optical systems. Weapons systems include a 30mm automatic gun, a vertical launch unit for surface-to-air and anti-ship missiles, and two launchers for light torpedoes.

JARI can be controlled remotely from a mother ship or shore station, but it can use artificial intelligence to autonomously navigate alone or as
