A mine warfare and hydrographic ship for the unmanned and information-dominated era.
Working with mine warfare and autonomous systems industry leaders and operators from several navies, we established a range of operational concepts to clear a minefield or hunt individual mines; the spectrum was broken down into four separate concepts of operation:
The VENARI-85 configuration meets the challenges of modern and future mine warfare while delivering wider roles within a navy. Key features include:
The inherent features of VENARI-85 provide a wider capability to a navy.
The large working deck, mission equipment garage, flight deck and hangar, and the platform’s stability and self-defence capability are employable in roles beyond mine warfare.
The survivability features of the design are critical to modern mine warfare operations and enable the platform to be deployed in a variety of locations and in a higher threat environment than is possible with an OPV without accepting substantial levels of operational and safety risk.
Our support vessels have been developed as a cost-effective option for complying with international maritime regulations to reduce the risk of pollution. AEGIR offers navies a customisable alternative to commercial replenishment tanker capability.
In partnership with Thales Naval UK, our twin island carrier design, complete with reconfigurable flight deck options, was the winning design for the QEC Aircraft Carrier.
Flexible and affordable, the BMT CAIMEN Landing Craft family provides customisable solutions that can be adapted to suit the requirements of military and security forces worldwide.
BMT SALVAS, our utility auxiliary ship design, is a specialist vessel that has been developed to combat the complexity of maritime operations.
