Navy's Argus defense project being tested at Port of Gulfport

from WLOX-TV

The centerpiece of the Advanced Naval Technology Exercise, or ANTEX, is the testing of their underwater defense system called Argus. An underwater unmanned vessel, or UUV, called REMUS was on display as the project testing continues. Just off the Port of Gulfport in the Mississippi Sound, the Remus roams the water. It’s a 14-foot-long, 700-800 pound system that works as a drone mapping ocean topography but in this case, it’s part of the Argus defense system. "It’s called Argus because Argus is the Greek god with 1,000 eyes,” said Elena McCarthy, Argus program director. Those eyes scan under the sea and serve as a submerged first line of defense outside our nation’s civilian and military ports. more
