Sea mines can cause a great deal of harm to ships and vessels of all sizes, a problem that has been exacerbated by the development of modern and more destructive mines, and one that a high-tech new minesweeper robot system is designed to neutralize.

Developed by Atlas Elektronik UK on the request of the UK's Royal Navy, this minesweeper robot can operate fully autonomously, and comprises an unmanned vessel that is attached to a trio of boats that come equipped with sensors and other tools that are capable of spotting and detonating mines.

What's great about this minesweeper robot is that it is capable of destroying both conventional as well as modern mines safely and without a need for human proximity, making this a secure and desirable way to rid the ocean of destructive mines.
