The Rhode Island Commerce Corporation Board of Directors has approved incentive agreements for Anduril Industries, Inc., a defense technology company planning to locate one of its manufacturing and production facilities in Quonset Business Park to build autonomous maritime systems and technologies.

Under the state’s Qualified Jobs Incentive Tax Credit program, Anduril will create 133 new full-time jobs with an average annual salary of $95,000. Anduril was also approved to receive tax credits under the Rebuild Rhode Island Tax Credit program. The project entails leasing and fit-out of a facility with an estimated total project cost to the company for the fit-out to be $8.3 million.

“Anduril joins an esteemed list of the nation’s leading defense contractors with operations in Rhode Island, like General Dynamics Electric Boat, Raytheon, and Textron, among others,” said Governor Dan McKee. “Their addition further demonstrates Quonset as a hub of good-paying, quality jobs for Rhode Islanders that will help our state in raising incomes for all.”

“We are thrilled to build a state-of-the-art production manufacturing facility for our LD family of vehicles in Quonset Point. Affordable, distributed mass is a central tenet of undersea deterrence, and we look forward to supporting large-scale, cost-effective autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) deployments with our new facility,” added Shane Arnott, Senior Vice President at Anduril Industries. “Our Maritime Division continues to develop advanced undersea capabilities and, with large contract awards both in the United States and Australia, we are committed to the mass manufacturing of those proven capabilities at speed and at scales that matter.”

Primarily serving federal government agencies such as the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security, Anduril is a defense technology company working to transform US and allied militaries with advanced technology, combining modern software expertise with a rapid and differentiated approach to hardware development and manufacturing.
