GA is currently active in systems integration for several U.S. Navy programs, including an Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System, an Advanced Arresting Gear, Integrated Fight Through Power Conversion equipment, a Superconducting Homopolar Propulsion Motor, and an Electromagnetic Railgun. C & C Technologies, Inc., a Lafayette, La.-based survey company, presently operates two HUGIN 3000 AUVs and will take delivery of a third, 4,500 m depth rated, HUGIN later this year. C & C Technologies is a leader in AUV operations having performed more than 50,000 km of commercial survey lines and hundreds of AUV launches and retrievals over the last few years.
