The Next Generation MCM Platform - Not Yet Full Autonomy

Unmanned systems offer a revolutionary change to the concept of operations for naval minewarfare. Extensive research led BMT to conclude, that given the current rate of development of autonomous systems, a need shall remain for the foreseeable future for a specialist mine counter-measures (MCM) platform from which the autonomous systems can be hosted and operated. These ships shall form an integral element of a nation’s maritime MCM capability and the new operating concept requires a very different platform to the existing ships.
