IRGC Develops AI-Powered Vessels, Submarines

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Navy has furnished its vessels and submarines with artificial intelligence, allowing the unmanned watercraft to carry out diverse combat and intelligence operations, a senior commander said.

The IRGC forces have applied modern technologies and sciences, including artificial intelligence, to four main sectors, namely the drone, missile, vessel and submarine industries, IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Reza Tangsiri said.

He noted that the IRGC has manufactured unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) that can travel long distances and return home after conducting an operation.

The general noted that the AI-powered USVs and UUVs can receive commands, attack a specific target with a desired layout, carry out intelligence operations, and return to the base after carrying out a task.
