One more NATO Navy selects ECA Group A9-M light AUV for MCM operations

Friday, June 02 2017
ECA Group was awarded an order from the NATO Marines, which confirms interets for light AUVs for the future MCM operations at sea.

This new order for ECA Group confirms the interest of the NATO Marines for light AUVs for its future MCM operations at sea. (Another NATO Marine has already been equipped by ECA Group end 2015: see article). This makes the ECA Group AUV A9-M solution one of the most attractive and efficient unmanned tools for underwater target detection and classification in Mine Counter Measure operations.

With its very low magnetic and acoustic signature, the AUV A9-M underwater drone is particularly adapted for mine disposal divers uses. Easily deployable from a small rigid-hulled inflatable boat (RHIB), it operates safely, close to the most sensible mines. This underwater robot, designed by ECA Group experts in navigation, communication or underwater imagery, complies with the most demanding specifications of NATO navies. It has been selected among different solutions for its compactness and its operational performances.

The A9-M can be proposed as a standalone system, but is also part of full Mine Warfare solutions based on unmanned vehicles. In this configuration, the detection and classification phases are performed by AUVs. ECA Group offers a large range of underwater drones, as A9-M, A18-M and A27-M , to meet the specific needs of the Navies. Integrated in the Unmanned Mine Counter Measures Systems, they can be associated with Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) and MDV (Mine Disposal Vehicles) such as SEASCAN MK2 and K-STER C for identification and neutralization phases.
