 The United States is highly innovative in budget prevention. Smash $1 billion to develop Underwater Unmanned Aerial Vehicles


Overseas network August 7 (Xinhua) recently, the United States Congress passed the 2019 fiscal year defense budget, the new national defense budget of a new record high, up to $716 billion 300 million (about RMB 4 trillion and 906 billion 655 million yuan), which into the underwater vehicle development of the amount of up to 1 billion US dollars (about 6 billion 850 million yuan).

According to the Russian satellite news agency, nearly $1 billion has been invested in the development of underwater UAVs in the new US defense budget. It is reported that 23 contractors support a $800 million underwater UAVs project, and the 23 R & D Contract firms were identified by bidding, and a total of 28 companies participated in the bidding.

According to the notifications issued by the US Department of defense in July 31st, these contractors will provide support for materials developed by underwater UAVs and provide services for the development, manufacture and assembly of underwater UAVs. It said the US Department of defense has signed contracts with contractors with a total value of $794 million, including heavy military manufacturing enterprises such as BAE systems, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon Co and General Dynamic Corp. The project, like the Science Applications International Corp, Woods Holzer Institute of Oceanography, the Southwestern Institute of the United States, and the American Hamilton standard company, will provide support for the project in the field of scientific applications. The procurement contract for underwater UAV parts is expected to expire in 2023. In recent years, the development and application of UAV technology is rising in the world, and the research and development of underwater UAV has also become a new field of concern for various countries. All countries hope to enhance the ability of marine cruising and operation through the promotion of technical equipment. Source: overseas web editor: Zhang Haitong _NN9053
