The MERCURY Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) is a mid-weight autonomous underwater vehicle with a modular design that suits different operational requirements. It surveys and provides effective and high quality underwater seabed data for Mine-Counter Measure (MCM) operations.
Unlike traditional remotely-operated underwater vehicles, the MERCURY AUV carries out missions autonomously, unlimited by the length of a tether. This allows it to travel longer distances and go deeper in the sea without risking the mother craft when mine hunting. Multiple vehicles can also be deployed to increase the operational effectiveness of missions.
