Atlas Elektronik Demos New MCM Tech

Thursday, July 28, 2011

ATLAS ELEKTRONIK has set a milestone in mine countermeasures (MCM) technology. With the C-IMCMS, the company has presented another first: an MCM system that operates exclusively with unmanned units.
For the first time, the complete functional chain of unmanned mine countermeasures – both for minehunting and for influence sweeping – was demonstrated by means of remote-controlled or autonomous systems. The missions of all vehicles used were planned, monitored and evaluated from a container-based command and weapon control system.
The C-IMCMS (Containerized Integrated Mine Countermeasures System) consists of a portable combat management system and CLASSIPHI analysis software for post mission analysis of side-scan sonar data, the unmanned surface vessel (USV) FAST, the autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) SeaOtter Mk II and the mine disposal system (ROV) SeaFox. The system was deployed from the shore; operations onboard various ship types are also possible.
ATLAS ELEKTRONIK tested and demonstrated the system at its Bincleaves, Weymouth test site on the southern coast of England. Representatives from Germany, Great Britain, Canada, the US, Belgium, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Thailand took part. The company is also planning to demonstrate the system onboard a ship.
