The Royal Netherlands Navy’s mine detection and neutralization force has added three new autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs).

The new generation Remus 100 marine robots enable mapping of the underwater soil and viewing objects such as mines, explosives but also missing persons.

The AUV can perform pre-programmed missions autonomously as they are equipped with Seebyte Neptune software. The software can make and execute its own decisions during a mission.

Previously, the navy personnel used an older version of Remus. The latest addition is part of the mine control equipment renewal program, according to the navy.

The Defence Diving Group carries out diving operations and clears explosive devices found under water. Royal Netherlands Navy divers also carry out underwater repairs to navy vessels and search ports for explosives.
