Adaptive Methods Announces Launch of Net Penetration Equipment

Centreville, VA, January 12, 2011 – Adaptive Methods, developer of advanced sensor systems, announced the release of their fishing net penetrator called NET PEN. The NET PEN provides the means for an Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) to cut through nets and continue on its mission.

Adaptive Methods’ internal-mounted NET PEN is adaptable to a wide range of vehicle sizes. It is intended to mount within a UUVs nosecone without affecting existing equipment (e.g., forward-looking sonar arrays), and integrates with existing UUV power and propulsion systems to detect, deploy, penetrate, and retract, upon contact with a net. External hull-mounted NET PEN is also available, which will ensure unencumbered net penetration, for UUVs with larger protruding surfaces such as masts, snorkels, etc.

Adaptive Methods can design, prototype, integrate, test, and manufacture NET PEN to address virtually any production-UUV net-mitigation deficiency, or to meet any new or developing program requirement.

Adaptive Methods, Inc. ( is a developer of advanced sensor systems and sensor processing and computing architecture products for surveillance, security and military combat systems based in Centreville, VA.
