AEUK secures ARCIMS export contract

Posted 21 February 2017 · Add Comment

Atlas Elektronik UK (AEUK) has announced another major export contract award for its ARCIMS Mission System.



Above: AEUK’s ARCIMS Integrated with ASW Mission System.

This latest contract will deliver two ARCIMS vehicles both operating an ASW surveillance mission module that can detect, classify and locate underwater threats such as submarines, mini-submarines and diver delivery vehicles.

The evolution of submarines, their proliferation and the low cost availability of mini-submarines has led to a growing threat particularly in the littoral. The ASW surveillance mission module will be used by an undisclosed Navy to patrol their littoral waters and conduct persistent monitoring of underwater activity for early detection of potential threats.

Dr Antoni Mazur, Managing Director of Atlas Elektronik UK stated “With this contract win AEUK will successfully integrate our sophisticated ASW mission system onto the modular platform which is ARCIMS. This demonstrates AEUK’s ability to develop, supply and support cutting-edge, innovative technology for an increasing number of defence customers."

The ARCIMS Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) is a Military Specification, operationally-proven, Maritime Autonomous Mission System. The affordable 11m vehicle has a common platform design and is highly customisable for multiple mission roles. It is easily transportable by road, sea or air for rapid deployment from Naval Bases or strategic operating locations.

The mission system integrates the most compact of the ATLAS family of variable depth sonars (VDS) onto the ARCIMS platform offering a flexible, agile and affordable solution. The Active/Passive VDS is optimised for operation in challenging shallow, warm-water environments to provide highly-capable detection of underwater threats to coastal regions. ARCIMS has a highly capable command and control system that is able to conduct a range of mission profiles, whilst feeding back target data to the mission commander.



The ARCIMS Maritime Autonomous Systems is an in-service with several navies, including:
• The UK Royal Navy’s portable unmanned minesweeping capability, deployable from a Mother Ship;
• The UK Royal Navy Maritime Autonomous Systems Trials Team (MASTT), Royal Navy Motor Boat Hazard;
• Portable Unmanned Minesweeping Mission Systems supplied to a number of foreign navies;
• The Unmanned Systems evaluation platform for WTD71 (German Navy).
