Ocean Power Technologies, Inc. (“OPT” or the “Company”), a leader in innovative and cost-effective low-carbon marine power, data, and service solutions, announced it has completed successful demonstrations of a Counter Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (“CUUV”) WAM-V capability. Recent demonstrations at the Navy League’s Sea Air Space Exhibition and the Association for Uncrewed Vehicle Systems International’s Pacific Pivot Event successfully showcased the ability to detect multiple underwater threats, including, singular and swarming micro Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (“AUV”).

The results of these successful field demonstrations along with the Detect to Engage Mine Countermeasures (MCM) USV capability will be presented by OPT’s Chief Commercial Officer, Matt Burdyny, at the International Mine Warfare Technology Symposium taking place in San Diego on 21 -23 May. This solution puts OPT into the unique position of offering an affordable commercial off the shelf (COTS) Uncrewed Surface Vehicles (USV) solution that is capable of serving the mission of the Department of Defense’s Replicator Initiative.

Mr. Burdyny expressed his enthusiasm about this milestone, stating, "These field demonstrations further solidify the operational capability of our COTS WAM-V solution with the objective of keeping our warfighter safe and removing the man from the minefield. This capability represents a potential order of magnitude cost reduction feature to our services. I am excited to present the results of our demonstrations at the forthcoming Mine Warfare meetings in San Diego, and advance our ability to deliver solutions where they’re needed the most. "
