The customer is transferring its mine countermeasure capability from manned 50m vessels with a crew of 40, to an unmanned system operated by three personnel.

The Navy's new unmanned surface vessel (USV), developed by a partner company, will deploy autonomously ECA Group's  K-STER I and K-STER C expendable mine disposal systems, which can be remotely piloted and use a highly secured dedicated link for the mine neutralization sequence.

The USV will use the K-STER I for inspection and if a mine is detected, launch the K-STER C to conduct the mine-clearance. All the vehicles are launched autonomously with an automated LARS (launch and recovery system), remotely piloted via a radio or satellite link.

The training for maintenance and pilotage of the systems has been conducted months ago at ECA Group's premises in the South of France.
