The Advanced Multi-Influence Exercise Mine (MINEA) is an underwater naval exercise mine outfitted with sensors for detecting and processing all magnetic, electric, acoustic, and seismic influences, and a sonar detector.
MINEA naval mines from SAES are the most advanced smart marine mines manufactured today. They are used in training exercises of MCM ships’ crews to provide deeper insight into mine hunting and neutralization TTPs. Models include Moored Mine, Low-Profile mine and Cylindrical Bottom Mine, each specifically designed in order to meet different operational scenarios and conditions.
The MINEA naval mines can be easily deployed from any type of surface ship using cranes, rails or ramps. The cylindrical bottom mine is specially designed for deployment from a submarine’s torpedo tube. Once an exercise has concluded, recovering is simple thanks to an automatic system that does not require divers, neither using pyrotechnics nor expendables.
Current versions include; MINEA naval mine exercise platform, INERT non-functional units/Cutaways, Combat version.
