Manta Ray Uncrewed Underwater Vehicle unveiledNorthrop Grumman

Northrop Grumman completed the assembly of a full-size uncrewed underwater vehicle (UUV) prototype known as Manta Ray.

The Manta Ray is a big underwater glider designed to carry out long missions without needing humans.

This new type of UUV (Unmanned Underwater Vehicle) can travel far distances for a long time and carry payloads.

DARPA, a government research agency, created it to improve future UUVs by focusing on energy efficiency.
