Mine Counter Measures

Innovative and Flexible Mine Counter Measure Solutions

Sea-mines are regarded as the ultimate asymmetric weapon and continue to proliferate.  Safety of navigation or the ability to execute naval and amphibious operations can be dictated by readily available devices that cost less than $5,000.  Sea-mines placed nearly 100 years ago remain potentially devastating and have drifted from their original positions or were never marked.

MIND Technology, through our Klein product line, is unique in being able to offer the full range of solutions for mine detection and classification.  From low-cost, easily-deployable, single-beam sonars with unique full-swath capabilities, through advanced, high-speed multi-beam systems, to the latest Synthetic Aperture Sonars (SAS) for the ultimate in range and resolution. MIND is producing SAS is in collaboration with a major European Defense Manufacturer.

We provide innovative, integrated, low Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) Sonar Solutions for autonomous surface and underwater vehicles, including intelligent Launch and Recovery Systems (LARS) and vehicle handling systems, as well as custom-designed stand-alone sensors for crewed, and optionally-crewed, surface vessels.

All MIND Technology MCM solutions are based on a modular, scalable architecture designed for Continuous and Pre-Planned Product Improvement (P3I) to ensure that systems remain at the forefront of technology.

Anti-Submarine Warfare

Industry changing ASW capability

Advanced, stealthy, and extremely capable submarines are now readily available at low costs, bringing an offensive submarine capability to many more navies and even non-state actors. Without some form of countermeasure, these capabilities allow unchecked covert intelligence gathering, harassment of shipping, territorial claims, infiltration, or delivery of contraband.

Using our rugged, field-proven, solid seismic streamer technology, coupled with unique in-house developed advanced processing, MIND Technology has developed an industry-changing towed array ASW capability.

Our ASW system has been designed for rapid deployment from USV platforms or as a ‘clip-on’ capability to existing light- and medium-weight Coast Guard or Naval vessels.  MIND Technology towed arrays are modular and scalable, with lengths from 50 m to over 300 m acoustic aperture available.

Processing uses a scalable, app-based architecture and includes multiple beamforming options,  as well as broadband, narrowband/LOFAR, and DEMON processing.  Other apps will include passive tracking and Target Motion Analysis.  The architecture is fully open to allow third-party/government processing and supports private cloud operation for distributed tracking, multi-static processing, and data fusion.

Waterside Security

Protecting Sensitive Installations and Critical Infrastructure from Asymmetric Threats

MIND Technology’s HarborGuard-Pro addresses these threats using a multi-layered Maritime Security and Surveillance system that combines and fuses data from above- and sub-surface sensors to provide full domain awareness. HarborGuard Pro incorporates radar, video, thermal/IR, passive, and active acoustic sensors to detect and automatically track the full spectrum of waterborne threats. HarborGuard Pro can automatically deploy multiple countermeasures, including searchlights, acoustic hailing devices, and other customer-supplied defensive systems.

HarborGuard Pro has a fully scalable, modular architecture tailored for each unique location and has been tested and deployed in numerous locations worldwide. As part of a full, ongoing support service, MIND Technology provides site survey, system design, installation, setting to work, system optimization, training, and lifecycle management (including ‘guaranteed up-time’ commitments).

MIND Technology recognizes that deployments may be temporary – for high-profile events, or in times of heightened alert – and that the capital outlay required for a permanent system is not always appropriate. Therefore, unique among all other major system suppliers, MIND Technology can offer temporary, fully containerized systems on a short-term lease basis. We also recognize that, in this type of deployment, recruiting, and adequately training, suitably qualified personnel can be equally challenging. In another industry-first, MIND technology can provide temporary systems, with guaranteed up-time, along with fully trained, suitably security cleared, personnel as a complete service.
