The Department of Defense and the US Navy awarded to Fincantieri’s subsidiary Marinette Marine a USD 7 million contract for design and engineering work of the Large Unmanned Surface Vessel, the future large-size unmanned surface vessels, able to operate without crew on board.
Fincantieri Marinette Marine has been shortlisted with five other companies. Each of them will develop the conceptual design within August 2021. The contract includes an option for an additional study phase to develop detailed engineering work that, if exercised, would extend the duration to May 2022.

The award process will follow the scheme of the tender for the 10 first-in-class guided-missile FFGX frigates of the US Navy, awarded to Fincantieri Marinette Marine four months ago, collectively worth USD 5.5 billion.

FMM is the spearhead of Fincantieri Marine Group, which controls two other shipyards also located in the Great Lakes in Wisconsin Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding and Fincantieri Ace Marine. The company serves commercial and government customers, including the US Coast Guard.
