Japan created a robotic complex for the search for sea mines

In the not too distant future, the Japanese Navy will be able to adopt marine robots capable of independently detecting sea mines. As transmits "NPlus1" referring to Jane's, the Japanese corporation IHI announced the development of a corresponding robotic complex.


The Japanese corporation has developed a robotic complex consisting of two robots capable of automatically searching for sea mines and transmitting information about them to the carrier ship. Rather, one robot is looking for mines, the second is a repeater and provides communication with the ship.

According to the developers, the Japanese mine search robot has a length of 5 meters with a diameter of 69 cm and a weight of 990 kg. The speed of movement under water is 4 knots (7,4 km / h), the depth of immersion is 200, 600 and 3000 meters, depending on the on-board equipment. Autonomy - 24 hours.

The robot is equipped with a side-scan sonar, a multi-beam sonar and a high-resolution digital camera. It can detect and recognize various underwater objects and use an acoustic modem to transmit an image and other data to a relay robot. The radio relay transmits them further to the carrier ship.

The repeater is a small surface vehicle with a periscope antenna, which provides communication and data transfer to the main ship, which is the carrier of the complex.

According to the developers, using a robotic complex to search for mines is much safer than traditional searches using minesweepers.

    In my opinion, a very necessary thing and I prophesy her success in the market.

      This is what prices they will trade at. So far, there is more demand for land complexes, since there is something to mine. And somehow it’s not heard about the water areas stuffed with mines.

        And at what price will you trade the lives of sailors on minesweepers and military divers in the event of a military clash? Or then, upon the fact of losses, will you start purchasing / inventing?

          And what mines (except nuclear) can be installed at a depth of 3000 meters?

            And if you look a little wider? Search for missing ships and submarines? Dead, but missing?

              There are many deep-sea drones of wide specialization.
              But this particular one is positioned as highly specialized.

            Obviously, the 200-600-3000 run is not random.
            At great depths, the robot probably provides additional functionality.
            Search, intelligence.

    What is there to discuss, THING is necessary ... you need to do or buy, which is not a gut, but have NECESSARY!

    For the Pacific Fleet, bad news. For 3000 meters, if not stuffing. This means that the mattresses with the Japanese have mines that can be installed at such depths.
    Although in my opinion even in the ZVO in the late 80s and early 90s these were written about. Like a torpedo tube with its harness in terms of a detection station and the ability to fire. Given that modern mines are all smart. That is sad in twins. Even the fact that the subfloor at the Pacific Fleet can be set will be quickly and cheaply wiped.
    PS! Mina is a defensive weapon at 70-75% and offensive in other cases! We remember the Kuril Islands and exhale!

    That’s what we need to work on, and not on all kinds of dubious Poseidons! "

    It is logical to assume that such mines are primarily with us. Will japas not develop weapons against their masters?

    That's it! It is better to engage in the development of such products than to exercise on the dubious Poseidon

    And we are still looking for mines with the nose of the flagship.

    Interestingly, and he can look for submarines?
    for example, used to search for submarines?
