The bottom mine GM-750 is a new generation of deep-water mines. It’s aerodynamic shape, its two stabilizers (wings-shaped when opened) and its mechanical characteristics allow it to be positioned on the bottom of the seabed from a moving ship. The special camouflage skin hampers detection from sonar devices.
The mine GM-750 is activated by a fuse and a Control Unit. It is equipped with a passive hydroacoustic, a hydrodynamic and a magnetic sensor. Other kind of sensors can be integrated if required. The Control Unit processes all signals received from the sensors of the mine and from an optional Remote Control System. It executes the commands of the operator including deactivation and self-destruction. The mine can also be remotely controlled by the AUCS Hydro-acoustic system for control of underwater objects.
