Revolutionising future mine countermeasure technology
New autonomous technologies will revolutionise mine clearance capability in operations close to shore through a new five-year, $15 million research and development project.
The project is part of a new partnership between Defence, Australia’s Trusted Autonomous Systems Defence Cooperative Research Centre (TAS DCRC) and Thales Australia.
Researchers will design, develop, test and evaluate various teams of micro Autonomous Underwater Vehicle swarms and Autonomous Surface Vessels, to develop new systems for underwater mine detection and clearance.
