Portable System:

Open Oceans is proud to announce the commercialization of a revolutionary portable unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) launch and recovery system. Developed to meet the stringent demands of the U.S. Navy, this patented system is designed for rapid deployment across global operations, enhancing the agility and flexibility of marine/naval assets. Recognizing the need for smaller, lighter, and easily transportable systems, this patented solution offers a breakthrough in operational dynamics.

Leveraging the Technology:

Industries such as offshore oil and gas exploration, underwater mining, and environmental monitoring can benefit from the system's rapid deployment capabilities and robust design. The system's adaptability makes it an ideal solution for disaster response and scientific research, where time and reliability are critical. By leveraging this technology, sectors outside the military can enhance their operational agility and achieve greater efficiencies in their underwater operations.

Rapid Deployment

and Recovery


Robust and Safe







How Does It Work?

Our system efficiently transports, launches, and recovers unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs) from a boat. It features support rails that secure the UUV during transport and facilitate smooth sliding during launch and recovery. A deployable ramp extends these rails into the water, with alignment rails ensuring proper UUV positioning during recovery. A winch assists in pulling the UUV back onto the boat, ensuring seamless integration with the alignment and support rails.
