The German Navy will receive the SeaFox mine disposal vehicle, marking the 2,000th SeaFox produced by Atlas Elektronik.

The SeaFox, equipped with several sensor systems and autonomous surface and underwater vehicles, can identify and destroy ground and attached mines without affecting the ship or its crew.

The reusable SeaFox I (intelligence) is used to identify the sea mine, and the SeaFox C (combat) serves as ammunition for mine neutralisation with its integrated warhead.

The disposable vehicle is fitted with a new mobile control unit and fuse to allow safe on-board recovery of the SeaFox C, if unused, after deployment.

The vehicle is also used by Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Estonia, Finland, UK, US and Japan forces.
