Autonomy and Autonomous Solutions
With proven autonomous solutions already in the water, Leidos is setting the pace when it comes to the most challenging aspects of Unmanned Vehicle (UxV) requirements—leaving others in our wake.
Leidos bridges a 50-year heritage of supporting the Navy with an unrivaled approach to innovation to solve next level autonomy challenges. As the Navy prepares to add autonomous capabilities to the fleet, Leidos is proving solutions at sea, building on years of focused effort to design, develop, and deliver fully autonomous vessels for its most advanced missions.
'A.I., captain': The robotic navy ship of the future
Sea Hunter is the first of a new class of warships that use artificial intelligence in place of a crew.
We’ve completed operational testing on autonomous seagoing vessels and delivered the world’s first unmanned, autonomous ship - leading the most mature medium class USV program for the Navy’s unmanned surface fleet.
Now, we're building on that success, applying best practices and technical prowess honed from our work helping global customers meet mission imperatives and our industry-leading research and design to support the Navy's vision of the unmanned future.
The autonomous ocean of the future
From captain-less cargo ships to robotic rescue boats, unmanned maritime vessels will soon rule the sea — and finally unlock its untapped potential.
Innovating at speed and scale
With an eye on the horizon and proven autonomy capabilities to build on, Leidos continues to invest in specialized vessels and facilities for R&D. Through our unique, world-class approach to unmanned sea systems, we’re delivering future-proof solutions, aligning significant resources to the continuous development of new autonomous systems and technologies and leveraging our Leidos Innovations Center (LInC).
The LInC’s mission is to help us solve enduring and new national technical challenges—rapidly prototyping and fielding solutions in areas including AI and machine learning, big data, cyber, surveillance systems, autonomy, sensors, applied biology, and directed energy.
