September 25, 2008

Navy Unmanned Surface Vehicles: An article in Friday's California section on the unveiling of the Navy's Unmanned Surface Vehicles put the cost of the first of the two vehicles and sonar gear at $197 million and said that in the future the price is scheduled to drop to $46 million per boat. The $197-million figure covers research and development for the first two anti-submarine warfare packages, and it should have said that each package includes two Unmanned Surface Vehicles, three underwater sensor systems, computer software and maintenance, and support equipment. Future packages will cost $46.3 million each.
