Mine-hunting Weapon


Mine-hunting Weapon

The Minesniper is a low-cost mine disposal system using a remotely controlled submersible vehicle for the efficient identification and destruction of sea mines. Developed by Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace in close co-operation with the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment and the Norwegian Navy, the Minesniper was first deployed onboard a Norwegian mine-hunter vessel. The Minesniper is two meters long and weighs about 30 kilograms.

The Minesniper can be a useful weapon for any navies with ongoing or planned programs for sea mine destruction. It can also be deployed from a helicopter, thus expanding the scope of possible aplications. Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace has signed a contract valued at approximately NOK 31 million with the Spanish Navy for delivery of this mine-hunting weapon. The contract is a continuation of the original agreement signed in 2002, and this latest addition brings the total contract value to roughly NOK 69 million. Spanish Navy is the first to use the Minesniper as a fully operational system. It has been deployed on all six of Spain's Segura Class mine clearing vessels, making the sale an important international reference for Kongsberg.
