Description: The PAP Mark 5 is a remotely operated mine disposal system designed by ECA for the localization, identification and destruction of bottom and tethered mines. More than 500 PAP underwater vehicles have been ordered by 20 navies throughout the world. This Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) has been deployed successfully during combat missions in the Red Sea, Falklands, Persian Gulf, etc, completing more than 45,000 runs so far.

The PAP ROV navigates at mid-water at a constant altitude above the seabed using its built-in camera and sonar for localization and identification of potential mines. The minesweeper vessel and the ROV remain connected by means of a wire. The underwater vehicle carries a single 130 kg NATO mine disposal charge. In addition to the explosive charge, the PAP can cut the mooring rope to dispose the mine. For enhanced survivability, the PAP ROV features low acoustic and magnetic signatures.
