  • Autonomous unmanned systems have the potential to, and are already, being employed to augment and replace human operators in conducting dull, dangerous, dirty and difficult tasks.
  • AEUK’s multi-role, reconfigurable ARCIMS Unmanned Surface Vessel, supported by mission specific payloads, is already providing autonomous mine countermeasures and anti-submarine warfare capabilities.
  • This is underpinned by AEUK’s platform agnostic autonomy system comprising an onboard control unit, command and control, HMI and displays, situational awareness and collision avoidance, and autonomous behaviours.
  • This paper explores future requirements and developments in maritime autonomy and the opportunities and challenges in fielding this capability across the broader spectrum of maritime warfare.
