Atlas Elektronik to upgrade German minehunters


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Atlas Elektronik GmbH
: 09 September, 2009  (New Product)
The old Pinguin B3 mine disposal system with the modern SeaFox suite. The MJ 332 vessels will each be equipped with six "SeaFox I’ remotely operated vehicles and 24 storage racks for the "SeaFox C’. Together with the necessary software, an advanced mine warfare system including advanced sonar signal and data processing will also be installed: the Integrated Mine Countermeasures System (IMCMS), comprising four multifunction consoles and the associated electronic rack.
The SeaFox-system is based on the one-shot “expendable mine disposal vehicle” principle for neutralizing sea mines. This approach accelerates the mine destruction process considerably. The unmanned underwater vehicles are used to identify and destroy tethered mines and proud ground mines. The mine is identified by the reusable “Sea-Fox I” vehicle, after which the “SeaFox C” combat vehicle neutralizes the mine with its integrated warhead.



Fibre optic cable is used for communication between the command console and the SeaFox sensors. After being processed in the electronic rack, the information is passed to the multifunction console, where it is displayed.
