Steller Systems has been awarded a contract from Future Commando Force, through the MOD’s Defence & Security Accelerator (DASA), to build a scale, functioning demonstrator of its ground-breaking unmanned maritime vessel design.
The full-sized autonomous platform, WRAITH, will provide significantly enhanced flexibility and capability for maritime forces. Building on previous development conducted under DASA funding, Steller Systems’ team of naval architects and marine engineers will design and build a demonstrator to be used to test and validate the platform’s capabilities and its unique CONOPS in order to demonstrate the platform’s wide utility to UK Defence.
The Defence & Security Accelerator, part of the Ministry of Defence, finds and funds exploitable innovation to support UK Defence and security quickly and effectively.
