AUV62-MR | UNMANNED MINE RECONNAISANCE
The AUV62-MR is a modular platform that offers mine countermeasures ships and crews a level of flexibility that is superior to conventional alternatives such as vessels with a hull-mounted or towed sensor.
As a complete, autonomous system fully equipped for military purposes, the AUV62-MR is the modern choice for Mine Countermeasures (MCM). By removing humans from the minefield, the vehicle provides a safe underwater solution that is capable of adapting to changing threats during naval operations.
Mine reconnaissance has historically been an extremely time and resource intensive activity for militaries. AUV62-MR operates autonomously, performing long-term mine reconnaissance missions with greater speed.
As a complete, autonomous system fully equipped for military purposes, the AUV62-MR is the modern choice for Mine Countermeasures (MCM). Effective reconnaissance and surveillance of underwater areas is crucial to the success of a military movements at sea.
Equipped with cutting-edge information gathering capabilities, such as highly accurate positioning, the AUV62-MR can perform surveillance and reconnaissance of the underwater area immediately after deployment.
Its ability to operate autonomously from a submarine, combined with its inherent long-term endurance capability, enables the AUV62-MR to perform the whole mission covertly.
The AUV62-MR can be launched from multiple platforms due to its flexibility and adaptable components. It is usually recovered the same way, whether by ship, submarine or shore.
The vehicle was intentionally designed to resemble a Heavyweight Torpedo (HWT), with the same mechanical and electrical interfaces, meaning there is no need for modification or integration if it is used on a submarine. The AUV62-MR can therefore be launched directly from an HWT tube, enabling fast,effective deployment of the vehicle.
For surface ship recovery, a unique docking device retrieves the vehicle from the water and winches it back to the launch chute. A specially designed ROV – the SUBROV – is used to recover the vehicle when used on a submarine.
