In order to also equip ships operating outside their own waters with an initial capability for mine countermeasures, ATLAS ELEKTRONIK has developed a mission module derived from the IMCMS®.
The C-IMCMS System can be deployed from non-specialised platforms and from the shore as well. With the shift in threat from a comprehensive global conflict to small-scale regional crises, requiring power projection from the sea off a foreign coast, naval forces are enhancing their MCM capabilities in order to support initial MCM operations through so-called mission modules. Such solutions enable the MCM assets to conduct MCM operations even if dedicated and highly specialised MCM forces are not in theatre. MCM mission modules make use of off-board sensors and effectors providing high operational performance combined with minimised direct exposure of the crew and platform to the mine threat.
