Talisman M configuration

Platform: Talisman
Manufacturer: BAE Systems


Talisman M is a Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) specifically designed for the clearance of mines underwater. The Talisman M is a step forward to minimizing the presence of a human operator in mine clearance operations. Part of the task can now be autonomously executed by the UUV although permission to deploy mine clearance equipment still requires verification by a human. When it is time to destroy a mine, the Talisman M will use one of four BAE Archerfish, small one-shot ROVs with cameras and destruction warheads.
