AEUK Wins Contract for Two Submarine Hunting ARCIMS

Atlas Elektronik UK (AEUK) has secured an export contract award for its ARCIMS mission system with an undisclosed Navy.

The ARCIMS 11-metre unmanned surface vehicle (USV) is a military specification maritime autonomous mission system equipped with ATLAS family of variable depth sonars.

This latest contract will deliver two ARCIMS vehicles both operating an ASW surveillance mission module that can detect, classify and locate underwater threats such as submarines, mini-submarines and diver delivery vehicles.

The ASW surveillance mission module will be used by the Navy to patrol its littoral waters and conduct persistent monitoring of underwater activity for early detection of potential threats.

Dr Antoni Mazur, managing director of Atlas Elektronik UK, said: “With this contract win AEUK will successfully integrate our sophisticated ASW mission system onto the modular platform which is ARCIMS. This demonstrates AEUK’s ability to develop, supply and support cutting-edge, innovative technology for an increasing number of defence customers.’’
