This series of video-clips were taken by ECA’s K-Ster ROV during trials.
K-Ster is a low-cost, easy to launch, one-shot mine disposal vehicle. An inert version is also available for training, demonstration or inspection tasks both in the military and civilian sectors (oil and gas industry). K-Ster is designed to operate from both dedicated and non-dedicated platforms, at ranges out to 1000 meters, in depths down to 300 meters.
Automatically guided towards the target, K-ster is fitted with both sonar and color camera for target identification. It has a unique tiltable warhead containing an insensitive explosive to attack mines accurately and efficiently and is effective against moored, bottom and partially buried mines.
The four clips were lyynified™ after the trials and clearly show how LYYN technology can enhance visibility and aid the identification process.
