ECA delivers MIDS to Asian navy customer

3rd October 2018 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


ECA Group has delivered several Mine Identification and Destruction Systems (MIDS) combining the K-STER Iidentification ROV and K-STER C neutralisation ROV to an undisclosed Asian navy customer.

The MIDS system is composed of two types of underwater unmanned vehicles. The K-STER I is a retrievable ROV that carries payloads for the identification of mines. The K-STER C mine disposal system, fitted with a powerful shaped charge, is guided towards the mine and destroys it.

To ease the task of the operator and improve mission efficiency, the MIDS system integrates auto-depth and auto-track modules designed to automate the ROV’s path to reach the area where the mine is located and enable its automatic return.

The K-STER I and K-STER C as well as equipment for automatic launch and recovery from naval surface USVs is integrated into a solution which can be operated from shore or a mothership.
