The maritime mine neutraliser
MuMNS is effective against a wide range of conventional underwater ordnance including buoyant and ground mines and can be adapted to counter less conventional targets.
The MuMNS system comprises an ROV equipped with up to three Mine Neutralisation System (MNS) charges, surface unit, Launch and Recovery System (LARS), winch with tether and a control position. The vehicle utilizes a shaped charge for high order target detonation. The charge is attached to the target by the vehicle and command detonated once the vehicle is clear.
MuMNS can operate from a wide range of platforms including Mine Countermeasures vessels, Unmanned Surface Vessels and can be containerised for even greater flexibility.
