BAE Systems Wins Korea Aerospace Industries’ Mine Neutralizer Contract
Archerfish Mine Neutralization System

BAE Systems said today it won a contract to adapt a new mine disposal system using Archerfish for Korean Aerospace Industries (KAI), as part of the development of the Republic of Korea (ROK) Navy’s new anti-mine helicopter fleet.

Already in service with the U.S. Navy, Archerfish is a remote-controlled underwater mine neutralizer that is launched and operated from surface ships, underwater vehicles and helicopters.

Under the £7.4 million contract BAE Systems will provide a complete mine countermeasure capability along with engineering expertise and support to KAI and ROK Navy.

Archerfish reduces the time needed to identify and neutralize targets and eliminates the need to put divers into the water.

Under the new contract new features will be developed for the technology including a light-weight launcher and a new data connection link between the aircraft and Archerfish vehicle.
