MINTACS is one of the world's leading naval Mine Warfare Command Support Systems.
In service with the Royal Australian Navy, UK Royal Navy, Royal Malaysian Navy, and Estonian Navy, it provides the Mine Warfare Force Commander with the latest technology to conduct both mining and mine counter measures in today’s complex maritime environment.
MINTACS is a comprehensive Tactical Command software suite which enables the Mine Warfare Force Commander and operations staff to plan missions, monitor tasking and conduct detailed assessment of mission progress from an individual asset or total force perspective.
MINTACS integrates the core tools required to conduct MCM missions.
Advanced algorithms are used to calculate mine clearance and threat. Inputs such as asset performance data can be selected from the database or entered directly into the tool.
The Tactical Display presents the backdrop of hydrographic and environmental data vital to informed decision making. It also provides the developing tactical picture of the mine warfare operation.
The system is customisable for use within mine warfare operations, and at maritime and joint forces headquarters.
The standalone variant is suitable for laptops or individual workstation computers. The network variant has been cleared for installation on large classified networks.
MINTACS can also be customised to suit the specific requirements of a customer, including the interface to the tactical data system of the mine warfare naval vessels.
MINTACS has recently been updated to support the use of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs).
