Le Marin: ECA Group demos its A18-M AUV in the Toulon area

Wednesday, March 21 2018
ECA Group presented its latest mid-size AUV A18-M dedicated to mine counter measures

Published on Le Marin, March 2018

Written by Alain Lepigeon

A18-M is the new generation of autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) developed by ECA Group to conduct efficient mine detection and classification in all water up to 300m . Like the A9-M and A27-M, the AUV A18-M is specifically designed to operate in the close vicinity of the smartest mines without triggering them.

The AUV A18-M integrates the Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) and has very high area coverage rate (2km2/hr). This optimal configuration enables to cover very large areas - of the order 20-40km2 in a fraction of the time of legacy assets, with far superior image quality, and with reduced risk to personnel.
