Procurement of Underwater Vehicles

The Indian Navy has started the process to procure five remote-controlled portable underwater vessels worth $ 95 million to conduct explosive ordnance disposal operations in harbors and sea water up to 75 meters depth. The Navy prefers three variants of the underwater vessel (UWV) for the detection/inspection, combat and training role.  The UWV should be capable of operating specialized equipment to locate using sonar, identify using cameras and disposal of mines using shaped charge. https://sputniknews.com/asia/201705191053784592-indian-navy-subsurface-vessels/
