A comprehensive and compact solution for mine clearance using drones

The OCTOPODA 300 makes it possible to deploy a naval drone system from a vessel that is just 30 metres in length.

It can integrate a UMISTM system or any other light configuration of naval drones. Ready to be built and based on sea-proven hull form it has ideal seaworthiness in cruising speed or for UxV launch and recovery.The system consists of

These underwater drones can be deployed from OCTOPODA 300 or a 7m Rhib nested in an aft ramp.

The OCTOPODA 300 also comprises a small landing platform making it possible to deploy a IT 180 lightweight UAV drone. The design incorporates a specific hangar with direct access to the aft deck and a control centre with a bird’s eye view of the deployment zone, the objectives of which are to simplify handling of the robots and optimise operability of the entire UMISTM system.
