General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) has won a deal to provide its Lithium-ion Fault Tolerant (LiFT) battery system for the Semi-Autonomous Hydrographic Reconnaissance
Vehicle (SAHRV), a small, mobile underwater vehicle (UUV).
Underwater robotic systems are also a part of the family, but because of budgetary constraints and war priorities, the semi-autonomous hydrographic reconnaissance
vehicle and others have not been maturing as quickly as the airborne platforms.
Once in place, SEALs conducted strategic reconnaissance, early warning patrols, hydrographic reconnaissance
, direct action, mine hunting, and combat search and rescue.
