ECA Delivers Underwater MCM Systems to Two Navies

ECA Group has delivered several underwater mine counter measure (MCM) systems to two navies, Kazakhstan being one of them.

The system is entirely based on specialized robots, and mines are detected using sonar fitted either on autonomous underwater vehicles or on surface drones, while avoiding the mother ship to approach the mines.

The different robots can perform full mine counter missions, as well as hydrography, surveillance, research and assistance missions, through their sequential and/or simultaneous deployment, ECA explained.

To manage the mission of various robots on the vessel, ECA Group has over recent years developed an Unmanned MCM Information System (UMIS) enabling the vessel to plan and conduct mine counter missions safely  through the optimal operation of the various robots.
