ECA and PROMINVEST (subsidiary of the Russian Group ROSTEC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with a view toward an industrial cooperation for the supply of submarine demining robots, Kster or equivalent one, for the Russian Navy.
On the one hand, these robots would equip the future minesweepers of the Russian Navy as part of one of the largest mine clearance vessels program of the coming years. On the other hand, these robots could also be installed on non-dedicated vessels of the Russian Navy. As part of this agreement, over a decade, more than 1,000 robots would be produced.
ECA and PROMINVEST have to define before this summer 2014 terms and conditions for an industrial cooperation allowing to produce and to provide technical support to these submarine demining robots during the vessels concerned lifetime. Part of the production, notably the explosive part, would be realized in Russia.
This event is a further illustration of the growing tendency of using drones, whether in land, underwater, on the surface or in the air.
