At EURONAVAL 2016 naval technologies trade show, Thales is launching Pathmaster fully configurable unmanned mine countermeasures system for naval forces seeking to minimise the risk exposure of their crews. It can be deployed from the shore, from a mine countermeasures vessel or from any other type of naval platform.
The Pathmaster uses automatic deployment and recovery system, automatic target recognition functions and user-friendly tactical software for minefield management.
Pathmaster is equipped with Thales SAMDIS high-resolution synthetic aperture sonar. With its multi-aspect functionality, the SAMDIS sonar views targets from three different angles.
