Disabling an Underwater Improvised Explosive Device (UIED) is a complex and dangerous task, and were traditionally carried out by specialised divers. Militaries around the world recognise the need to replace this manual task with remotely operated vehicles.

Blueprint Lab have teamed up with the University of Sydney to enhance the functionality of robotic underwater vehicles to neutralise UIEDs safely and effectively.
