Hydroid, Inc. is the world’s leading manufacturer of unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs). Founded in 2001 to develop and commercialize the groundbreaking REMUS (MK18 and LBS) vehicles, REMUS was originally designed at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), one of the leading names in ocean science. Hydroid has since grown into the world’s largest and most trusted provider of UUVs.
Hydroid has transformed the technology behind the original REMUS design into a line of UUVs that are trusted worldwide for its reliability, performance and data. Hydroid’s state-of-the-art facilities in Massachusetts produce a range of vehicle systems that can meet the demands of virtually any marine environment. The REMUS 100 was the first combat-deployed UUV in history and Hydroid is proud to have over 10 years of experience providing the United States Navy and its allies with the most combat-proven UUV in the world.
Since being acquired by Kongsberg Maritime in 2008, Hydroid has been able to deepen its commitment to providing its customers with the most effective and efficient UUVs by incorporating advanced commercially proven technology into its REMUS line of vehicles. Today, REMUS and Hydroid are synonymous with excellence in UUVs, incorporating the most advanced subsea technology into American-made vehicles that can be trusted with any mission in any part of the world.
