Inside Look at a New Robot Tuna That Could Be Used By The US Navy

Waltham-based tech firm, Boston Engineering recently received a $200,000 grant directed at commercializing it’s robot tuna which could have military applications, but is designed to secure ports, inspect ships, and locating contraband.

The robot tuna is called the BIOSwimmer, and technically is identified as a unmanned underwater vehicle, a product that could be extremely useful to the United States Navy for defense and homeland security initiatives.

Michael Rufo, director of Boston Engineering’s Advanced Systems Group, says, “Our UUV technology replicates the dynamics of biological fish to move more rapidly, more accurately, and in more challenging areas than other marine solutions.”
