Swiftships to build Medium Unmanned Surface Vehicle (MUSV) prototype and up to 9 vessels for the U.S. Navy as a subcontractor to L3Harris
L3Harris selected Swiftships as the subcontractor to build Medium Unmanned Surface Vehicle (MUSV) prototype and up to 9 vessels for the Naval Sea System Command (NAVSEA), based on Swiftships success in pioneering “Riley Claire” commercial hull conversion into militarized unmanned platform “Ghost Fleet”. Navy picked L3Harris to design the prototype Medium Unmanned Surface Vessel (MUSV) for ocean intelligence jobs and Swiftships will complete the vessel’s construction.
In 2020, Swiftships signed the agreement with L3Harris for MUSV prototype construction and all other MUSVs that will be funded by the U.S. or international buyers. To date, L3Harris has been awarded up to 9 MUSVs.
