ARCIMS

ARCIMS answers the demands of our customers for a more affordable and flexible capability for the detection and classification of submarines, mines and other surface platforms. Achieved by the integration of highly capable sensor packages into an intelligent platform allowing fully autonomous, remote controlled or manned operations.

In 2016, ARCIMS triumphed at Unmanned Warrior, Scotland, when the Royal Navy invited AEUK to demonstrate its capabilities with more than 50 participants from the MOD, industry and academia.  ARCIMS demonstrated robust operations in varying sea states in several high-speed missions—acquiring and transmitting real-time towed sonar data to the command & control station for ‘in mission’ analysis. To date 10 vessels are in service or under contract.

Main Features

  • Accomplished – Fulfils multiple naval roles, including minesweeping, mine hunting, mine disposal, ASW, surveillance, force protection, diver support.
  • Deployable – With portable containerised systems, ARCIMS can be deployed rapidly by sea, air and road.
  • Intelligent –Can be operated remotely, autonomously or as a manned vessel.
  • Adaptable – Engineered versatility, allowing a stand- alone mission system or fully integrated with a mother ship.
  • Proven – An established capability, in service with navies around the world, including the Royal Navy.
  • Instinctive – Delivering the highest levels of autonomy, from planning and execution to evaluation and reporting of each mission.
  • Diverse – Integrates with other autonomous systems for increased, multi-missioncapability.
  • Capable – Large open deck space with 4 tonne capacity for mission moduleintegration. Speed up to 40 knots with towing speed up to 15 knots.
