ECA Group, a Groupe Gorgé subsidiary, has recently won two export contracts valued at more than €10 million for Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV).
For the first contract, the company informed that its customer exercised an option for two additional Inspector Mk2-type USVs after ordering two in early 2014.
Inspector Mk2 is an 8.5m-long USV. Operated by a small team, remotely or completely autonomously, this platform can perform several missions in territorial and inland waters.
Furthermore, ECA Group signed a contract of several million euros to supply two comprehensive systems for the identification and neutralization of underwater mines. These systems will be implemented on a partner’s USVs.
The latter will then deliver them to an Asian navy in 2016 and 2017.
