SMi reports: ECA Group having announced latest mid-size AUV will sponsor and exhibit at Unmanned Maritime Systems conference 2018
ECA Group has announced its latest mid-size AUV (autonomous underwater vehicle), the A18-M, dedicated to mine counter-measures. The vehicle has been developed by ECA Group for efficient mine detection and classification in all water depths up to 300m. Like the other ECA Group AUVs A9-M and A27-M, the AUV A18-M is specifically designed to operate in close vicinity of the smartest mines without triggering them.
According to ECA Group this is the first comprehensive unmanned maritime system that includes all types of naval systems: Unmanned Surface Vehicles, Autonomous Underwater Vehicles, Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicles and EMDS.
Delegates will discover more about how ECA Group are enhancing and developing with their new AUV at SMi’s Unmanned Maritime Systems conference (UMS) 2018 . ECA Group will be sponsoring and exhibiting and will be available to discuss all technological solutions in the constantly evolving Subsea market. Unmanned Maritime Systems (UMS) 2018 promises to provide a valuable forum for anyone looking to enhance their unmanned capability.
A key topic at the meeting in May is Mine countermeasures, with expert speakers from the German Navy, Belgian Navy and NATO all presenting on this very topic. On the same day, there will be an interactive panel discussion led by DSTL, FMV – Swedish Defence Materiel Administration, National Oceanography Centre and moderated by the Royal Navy.
The panel will discuss feedback on improved efficiency and operational support when deploying unmanned systems in naval operations.
