Ohio Class Guided Missile Submarine (SSGN) Unmanned Systems

The U.S. Navy's four Ohio Class Guided Missile Submarines (SSGN) were converted from carrying ballistic nuclear missiles (SSBN) to carrying guided cruise missiles (Tomahawk), special operations forces, and other payloads, to include unmanned systems.

Unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) will be launched via a dry deck shelter attached to the SSGN or from the Universal Launch and Recovery Module. An unmanned air vehicle named Buster was launched from USS FLORIDA (SSGN-728) and the Pointer UAS (pictured above) has also been flown off the deck of an SSGN.
