The LRUSV system heralds a new era in marine technology while increasing the lethality of the American armed forces. A network of unmanned ships drives autonomously over long distances and carries ammunition to attack targets at sea and on land. This scalable and tiered weapon system provides the ability to accurately track and destroy targets remotely across the battlefield. While fully autonomous, the ships can optionally be manned and carry multiple payloads that they can launch and retrieve autonomously. (Video: metal shark)
