UK defense contractor BAE Systems on Wednesday unveiled the latest version of its flagship mine counter measures (MCM) system NAUTIS 5 at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition in London.

NAUTIS is used to counter the threat of naval mines and is installed on board more than 65 ships from seven navies across the world, according to the company.

Royal Navy’s Hunt and Sandown class mine counter measure vessels are fitted with the system.

BAE says NAUTIS 5 incorporates improved command and control for autonomous and off-board systems, a new and improved Human-Computer Interface (HCI) and embedded onboard training.

For MCM ships using the current version of NAUTIS, a simple upgrade can be installed in short maintenance periods without the need to change on-board consoles. The system uses commercial, off-the-shelf hardware based on Shared Infrastructure technology.

“The NAUTIS 5 system is the result of our long term investment and vision for mine countermeasures and autonomy mission systems,” BAE Systems naval ships combat systems director, Richard Williams said. “We have worked closely with our customers and equipment providers to understand operational needs and how to address them. As a result, we have developed a world class system that keeps BAE Systems at the forefront of the MCM domain and helps to keep trade routes open.”
