On behalf of the French Defence Procurement Agency and the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defence Equipment and Support organisation, the Organization for Joint Armaments Cooperation (OCCAr) has awarded the Maritime Mine Counter Measures (MMCM) contract to Thales, in collaboration with BAE Systems and their partners in France and the United Kingdom. Initiated in 2012 under a cooperation agreement between the two countries, the MMCM program develops a prototype autonomous system for detection and neutralisation of sea mines and underwater improvised explosive devices.
