How does this ROVs work?
MineSniper MK III is an ROV, meaning it's hardlined to a mothership and reliant on that ship's sensors and personnel for guidance and delivery. It has onboard its own cameras and a sonar and LED lights for communication should its hardline be severed, but it's primarily dependent on its mothership.
Once a mine is located by a minesweeper, hunter or destroyer, the ship is positioned to allow it a constant view of the offending object via sonar.
A MineSniper ROV is fitted with an explosive charge and launched to investigate.
If the contact is positive, the MineSniper is positioned to allow its shaped charge to blast through a mine's shell and safely render it inert.
The whole process is 5x less time consuming then previous counter-mining operations such as by-hand demining.
MineSniper can be used as an anti-submarine weapon too, against thin hulled coastal submarines like Russia operates.
