Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) using REMUS 600 and UAV

Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) using REMUS 600 and UAV

25-Sep-2017 Hydroid and L3 Mission Integration are collaborating on a mission that illustrates the latest unmanned undersea vehicle technologies and capabilities in a single interactive demonstration. 

The Hydroid REMUS 600 is being launched on a mission from the R/V Tiburon marine research vessel. The REMUS 600 will surface and conduct signals intelligence with the L3 Rio Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) System. This system intercepts, locates, monitors and records communication signals using a common set of software applications. Simulating a real satellite communications link, the data will be communicated to the Tiburon via Wi-Fi where the Signal Control Centre will be based. The information will also be re- transmitted through a Freewave radio to shore where Hydroid and L3 will be displaying real-time data from the mission. 


When the signal intelligence data indicates it is appropriate, the REMUS 600 will submerge and, when at depth, release a Sparton Hammerhead canister that contains the AeroVironment Blackwing UAV. The UAV will launch from the canister, run reconnaissance, and relay data including a live video link back to the Hydroid Control Centre. The REMUS 600 will continue its mission and transit back to the R/V Tiburon to be recovered.
