Singapore Technologies (ST) Electronics has begun testing its Venus unmanned surface vehicle (USV) for anti-submarine warfare (ASW) operations.

Speaking with IHS Jane's at the Singapore Airshow on 11 February, Ng Tee Guan, vice-president of marketing for ST Electronics said that the company has integrated one 16.5 m-long Venus USV platform with a launch and recovery system for dipping sonars and is currently conducting a series of tests on the unit including its deployment abilities under various sea states.

The Venus USV is an indigenous effort believed to have grown out of Singapore's previous involvement in the US Navy's Spartan Scout Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration (ACTD) programme.
