More Remus 100 AUVs for Norwegian Navy

12th April 2012 - 14:56 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Kongsberg Maritime has announced that its subsidiary company, Hydroid, has received an order from the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation (NDLO) on behalf of the Royal Norwegian Navy (RNoN) for the purchase of an additional four Remus 100 AUV systems.

The Remus 100 AUVs will be used by the Norwegian Armed Forces for mine countermeasure operations. The system is well suited to the harsh Norwegian waters, enabling the navy to carry out exploration work regardless of the weather conditions and to survey areas for explosives where traditional mine countermeasure vessels cannot travel.

The Remus 100 is a compact, lightweight AUV designed for operation in underwater environments up to 100 meters deep. The vehicle can be configured with a wide variety of standard and/or customer-specified sensors and system options in order to meet specialised mission requirements.

The system is modular, and can be fitted with varying sensors for use in hydrographic surveys, harbour security operations, debris field mapping, scientific sampling and mapping, as well as many basic and applied research programmes.
