ECA Group supports navies in succeeding in their missions while ensuring safety of their crews. We offer a wide range of innovative and comprehensive technological solutions to face current and future challenges, constantly innovating to improve their capabilities and performance to carry out ever more complex missions in hostile or restrictive environments.

Drones specialist for over 50 years

Increasing the operational capabilities of our clientele, ECA Group supplies the full spectrum of robotics solutions, unmanned or remotely operated vehicles in the air, on land and at sea. Thanks to Mauric, our naval architecture office, we provide Mine Counter Measure turnkey solutions including ships drones carriers. 



ECA Group expertise presented at EURONAVAL ONLINE

Mine Counter Measures: Detect - Classify - Identify - Neutralise

Naval mines are a very easy and cheap way to impact a nation’s economy by putting at risk men, equipment and coastal infrastructures. Moreover, still a large number of historical mines used during both World Wars have yet been removed or neutralised

ECA Group offers interoperable systems capable of tackling the most demanding Mine Counter Measures and is the first to materialise the “stand-off concept”: ECA Group systems efficiently locate, identify and neutralise underwater threats, while keeping crews at a stand-off distance from the mine field. This system is already in use within several navies and will soon equip the Belgian and Royal Dutch navies.

UMIS - Unmanned MCM Integrated System

Developed by ECA Group, UMISTM the Unmanned MCM Integrated System is an innovative and complete robotic system dedicated to MCM composed of ECA Group naval drones:

Operations are conducted thanks a unique interface, using an advanced Command & Control System as well as a dedicated software suite, UMISOFTTM.

UMISTM can be integrated on board specialised vessels or non-dedicated ships. Its containerised version, UMISTM in the Box, can be deployed from the ships or directly from shore since it is both road and air transportable.



Search And Rescue

Intervene in Extreme Situations

ECA Group ROVs are air transportable and work up to 6000m depth, addressing the most challenging operations, notably:

  • Supporting the rescue of a submarine in distress
  • Search or recovery of aircrafts
  • Search for objects at sea
  • Exploration, localisation, assistance and intervention missions

In addition, we support our clients in their missions and needs with a wide range of tailored sensors, payloads and manipulator arms.


Seabed Warfare

Deep Ocean Survey & Protection

Today, underwater monitoring is essential to ensure the integrity of the assets laying on the seabed (communication cables, pipelines etc.). With its range of AUVs, ECA Group addresses the dual requirements of scientific knowledge and military intelligence.

With its A18 AUV range, ECA Group offers the best balance for compactness, endurance, performance, modularity, data quality, innovation and competitiveness to operate up to 3000m depth.

ECA Group’s latest innovative AUV milestone is the ultra-deep water AUV. Designed and produced in collaboration with Ifremer (French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea), this AUV features numerous new technologies to accomplish disruptive mission scenarios associating long range multi-sensor surveying with event-driven close-to-seafloor hovering for optical ground truthing and local inspection. Designed for exploration of the deep ocean, it operates down to 6000m ocean depth for up to 48 hours.


Ship Equipment & Protection

ECA Group’s offer is reinforced by its wide range of equipment that can operate in challenging environments for ships, submarines and their crew: platform management, control & command systems, and propulsion & energy systems.


Magnetic Risk Management

As a precaution against magnetic mines, reducing magnetisation helps protect vessels. ECA Group offers deperming and degaussing systems to manage vessels’ signature. Discover also ECA Group’s system STERNA® based on the UAV IT180, an aerial portable magnetic ranging system, quickly deployable, which allows to complete a full operation in 1 hour.


Propulsion & Energy Converters

ECA Group's propulsion and energy conversion solutions are sea proven and in service within several navies. These highly robust systems can be integrated onto different platforms - nuclear or conventional – and are compatible with any type of submarine design.

The integration of complex electrical networks and use of the latest technologies such as silicon carbide chips guarantee unparalleled performance and operators’ safety.


Steering & Diving Consoles & Simulators

ECA Group is also an expert of Steering and Diving Consoles, a generic sea proven product that manages the 3D motion of submarines, by controlling diving planes and Rudder. Its open and modular architecture allows the consoles to be adaptable to any submarine design and are designed integrating the laws of silent piloting.

Increasing the performance, skills and capabilities of the crews, ECA Group’s simulators recreate accurately the equipment's behaviour as in real underwater conditions. Crews can thus learn how to fix breakdowns without damaging the submarine, which better ensures experience and anticipation of potential technical difficulties and risks.


Naval architecture

Design – Integrate - Modernise

ECA Group relies on its company MAURIC’s naval architecture expertise to design the next generation of defence and security vessels, which integrate ECA Group’s naval unmanned systems. ECA Group and MAURIC jointly developed a range of motherships designed to operate robotics systems for civilian and military operations: OCTOPODA.

ECA Group and MAURIC also provide to navies and ship-owners modernisation solutions for the integration of robotics systems on-board existing vessels. ECA Group offers a complete and integrated solution of unmanned systems integration on-board mine hunters, survey or scientific vessels increasing navies’ fleet capability at a limited cost while keeping a high level of performance.

Carrying, deploying and recovering autonomous underwater drones by Unmanned Surface Vehicles directly on the theatre of operations allows optimising navies’ operability and range of action. Sea proven, robust and capable of operating in a challenging environment, our latest USV INSPECTOR 125 is a large USV capable of transporting, launching and recovering drones formerly reserved to larger crewed vessels. Unmanned systems enable navies to keep safe their crews while operating effectively from distance (stand-off) as well as faster than with conventional means.
