    Boat "Seeker" on tests in Kronstadt

    Published in the web resource forums.airbase.ru made in Kronstadt photos of the prototype of a robotic multi-functional motor boat "Iskatel", developing the St. Petersburg JSC "Scientific and Production Enterprise" Aviation and Marine Electronics "(NPP AME). The motorboat is offered as a domestic platform for a mine-free mine protection complex instead of unmanned surface vehicle (USV) Inspector Mk 2 boats of the French company ECA Group.



    As already reported by our blog, the prototype of an unscrewed boat "Seeker" passed the first sea trials in 2016 and was demonstrated at the 8th International Naval Salon IMDS-2017 held in St. Petersburg from June 28 to July 2, 2017. The Seeker boat has smaller dimensions than the ECA Inspector Mk 2 - the displacement of the Seeker is 5.4 tons, the length is 8.4 meters, the width is 3 meters, and the height is 3.4 meters. The payload is 500-600 kilograms. The boat is equipped with two diesel engines with a capacity of 220 hp, a full speed of 25 knots. Autonomy up to 7 days.

    The complex detects and mounts above-water objects at a range of 5 km with the help of a 24-hour optic-electronic surveillance system remotely controlled by the operator. In addition, the possibility of installing additional sonar equipment is provided on board. The hull was created by the Neptun company, radio communications lines were developed in Rybinsk Rybinsk Design Bureau Luch, directly in the NPP AME, they were engaged in creating electronic equipment and integrating the system as a whole.

    What's the point in making unmmanned patrol boat ? Patroling means checking. Most of the time you control fishers so you need manned crew to check documents.

    I suspect that the emphasis is on the 'demining' part of the description.

    Patrolling for mines and demining. This is a "robot" boat to be used by the new 12700 minesweepers replacing the French model they presently use.

    So it carried by a mother ship. And how does it work for demining ? Does it carry some mini torpedo or depth charges ?

    If you read post number 134 on the previous page by George you would see a description of the french model this model is replacing.

    It is not a patrol vessel, it is a demining robot.

    Most mine hunting ships are not metal... they are often GRP so having the mines explode a long way away from your boat is a good thing.. Smile

    BTW for those not familiar, GRP is glass reinforced plastic... a sheet of glass is very fragile, but form it into fine strands and it becomes a very strong light material like glass fibre.

    11 BK-10's and 6 Bk-16's under construction for the Navy. Another BK-16 has already been delivered for trials. These are fast assault craft for inshore patrols and assault landings. The number represents the number of combat troops each can carry. They can be carried by larger ships such as the 22160 and 23550 patrol ships. The BK-16 is a smaller version of the Raptor 03160.

    Vishnya-class Intelligence Ship Karelia rejoined the Russian Pacific Fleet

    The Dalzavod Ship Repair Center has completed the builders’ sea trials of the Karelia medium intelligence ship following comprehensive repair and retrofit. After that, it was handed over to the Pacific Fleet, Dalzavod’s press service reported to the online agency Flotprom.

    "The sea trials program has been successfully completed. The ship’s main propulsion plant, main units and mechanisms, navigation and communication equipment were tested during the sortie into the sea," said Dalzavod’s executive director Igor Evdokimov. "The ship rejoins the Pacific Fleet with the extension of the mean time to repair for five years."

    The ship Karelia had been mothballed for more than 10 years until January 2014 when Dalzavod started comprehensive repair and retrofit of the ship. In the process of recovering the ship’s technical readiness, the main engine, all units and mechanisms were repaired, and advanced navigation and communication equipment was installed. All the spaces of the ship were repaired and the the living conditions for the crew were improved substantially. Just like on the large landing ship Oslyabya, handed over to the fleet in the spring of this year, modern polymer coatings and painting techniques were applied during repair work.

    Russia’s Northern Fleet receives another counter sabotage boat

    Now the number of the Grachonok-class counter sabotage boats assigned to the Northern Fleet has grown to three

    MURMANSK, August 28. /TASS/. Russia’s Northern Fleet has received a new Grachonok-class counter sabotage boat, the Fleet’s press service said in a statement. According to the press service, the boat has been handed over to the counter sabotage unit deployed to the main base of the Northern Fleet’s submarine forces in Gadzhiyevo, located in the Murmansk region.

    "The flag-raising ceremony on the boat was held on the sidelines of the Army-2017 International Military Forum," the statement adds.

    Now the number of the Grachonok-class counter sabotage boats assigned to the Northern Fleet has grown to three. The first one of them, named "Yunarmeyets Zapolyarya," participated in the country’s main naval parade in the city of St. Petersburg.

    The Grachonok-class counter sabotage boats have been developed by the Vympel Design Bureau and built at the Vympel shipyard in Rybinsk in the Yaroslavl Region, central Russia. They are designed to protect water areas and fight sabotage and terrorist groups in coastal waters. The Project 21980 counter sabotage boats are armed with large-caliber machine guns, depth charges and man-portable air defense missile systems.

    The boat’s radio electronic equipment is capable of searching for moving underwater targets, including small ones, such as divers.

    I have the same problem with him and Calm sometime. What I do is hit the quote button in the bottom right hand corner. You can then see the links but you will have to copy paste them into a new tab to open the link. I suspect John was a lawyer in another life... probably for my ex-wife.

    Never a lawyer but I wrote a few contracts and had a case in our High Court!

    I'd better start putting the links in as well as using the convenient button above.
