The Lithuanian Navy is to be equipped with K-STER underwater ROVs from ECA Group for sea mine clearance.

K-STER has been chosen for the same purposes by other NATO navies including the Belgian Navy and the Royal Netherlands Navy, with their deliveries expected over the next three years.

Throughout the NATO-led training exercise Open Spirit, held in Lithuania in spring 2019, ECA Group’s K-STER was used by MCM vessels taking part.

The device can be used to neutralise sea-bottom mines, floating mines, historical mines and smart mines with its tiltable shape charge.
