The MEP-2 RC surface and MEP-8 RC bottom effectors are designed to neutralize terrorist divers as well as UAVs or manipulators. The purpose is to protect harbours or other water areas.
MEP-2 RC consists of anchor, warhead with AUCS-receiver and Acoustic Underwater Control System, i.e. AUCS.
Through the AUCS-system the warhead can be commanded to jump up from the seabed. After initiation the fuse is activated at a distance above the seabed which increases the effect of the warhead. The AUCS can also order activation and neutralization.
MEP-8 RC consists of warhead with frame, fuse and AUCS. It is positioned quite easy by simply dropping the device into the water.
