Nauticus Robotics has announced it has been awarded an additional US$2.1 million under its current contract with Leidosa. The additional funding augments the earlier award and this program has received US$16.6 million in funding from Leidos since 2022. The technology developed is expected to underpin future, economically material opportunities.
Derived from Aquanaut, this undersea robot features technology to support longer and more challenging missions. In addition, this award furthers operational enhancements to toolKITT, Nauticus' proprietary software package developed to enable an ecosystem of autonomous actions for subsea vehicles, which enables the vehicle’s intelligence.
Nicolaus Radford, founder and CEO of Nauticus, said: "This work is the centrepiece of Nauticus’ excellent collaboration with Leidos, and I look forward to continuing our mutual progress of advancing the state of the art in undersea vehicles."
