Sea Mine PDM-1C is designed to destroy all kinds of assault vessels and vehicles, such as assault motorboats, tanks and light armored vehicles in sea, rivers or lakes. It is made of high corrosion-resistant materials (stainless steel and plastic). The mine can be placed by a minelayer.
The sensor system includes acoustic, magnetic and contact sensors. The contact sensor has a mechanical appliance which ensures a constant depth of submersion of the fuse during high and low tides.
The fuse is of a non contact type and is operated by means of a programming device set to control all operations such as switching on/off, neutralization and self-destruction.
The fuse rises to the water surface when neutralized.
Acoustic Underwater Control System- AUCS can be employed to control the mine from the coast or from a vessel. The system performs the following functions: activation and deactivation (neutralization or self-destruction). Two versions of AUCS are available: AUCS-M with remote control range up to 1 000 m and AUCS-L with remote control range up to 2 000 m distance. The depth remote control range of the two models is respectively up to 30m and 50m. The commands are transmitted by hydro acoustic signals from a control station. Each sensor system has an individual coded access number, which allows sending control signals to the fuses of each seamine, to separate groups of seamines or to all seamines of an anti-landing barrier within the range of control system.
