Title
(EN) A DEVICE AND METHOD FOR DISABLING AN UNDERSEA MINE, AN UNDERWATER TRANSPORT AND METHODS THEREFOR
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ DE DÉSACTIVATION D'UNE MINE SOUS-MARINE, TRANSPORT SOUS-MARIN ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract
(EN) The present invention relates to a mine countermeasure device for disabling an undersea mine, and underwater transport, and methods therefor. The mine countermeasure device operates to mask, cancel or neutralise (detonate) the undersea mine. The mine countermeasure device is deployed, together with a plurality of other mine countermeasure devices from an underwater transport, preferably autonomously. The underwater transport preferably carries out a scan of an area known to be mined, in order to identify undersea mines. Preferably the underwater transport is capable of autonomous operation over the horizon to deliver plurality of mine countermeasure devices. The mine countermeasure device targets particular sensors on the undersea mines.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif anti-mines visant à désactiver une mine sous-marine, et un transport sous-marin, et des procédés associés. Le dispositif anti-mines fonctionne pour masquer, annuler ou neutraliser (faire exploser) la mine sous-marine. Le dispositif anti-mines est déployé, conjointement avec une pluralité d'autres dispositifs anti-mines, depuis un transport sous-marin, de préférence de manière autonome. Le transport sous-marin effectue de préférence un balayage d'une zone connue pour être exploitée, afin d'identifier des mines sous-marines. De préférence, le transport sous-marin est capable d'un fonctionnement autonome transhorizon pour distribuer une pluralité de dispositifs anti-mines. Le dispositif anti-mines cible des capteurs particuliers sur les mines sous-marines.
