French Procurement Agency experimenting naval drones as the future of anti-mine warfare

The French Defense Procurement Agency (DGA - Direction générale de l’armement) explores the possibilities offered by the use of surface and undersea unmanned vehicles to counter the threat of the naval mines. The innovative concept of "a drone carrying drones" studied in the research study "Espadon (Swordfish)" offers particularly promising solutions. Experiments have been conducted at sea since 2011, in favor of the DGA and the French Navy, off Brest.
