Japan to Receive Northrop Laser Mine Detection Systems

The Japanese navy will purchase four of Northrop Grumman‘s helicopter laser mine detection systems, Northrop announced Thursday.

Northrop said the agreement marks the first time an international navy will receive Northrop’s Airborne Laser Mine Detection System.

The system transmits a fan-shaped laser beam to detect and classify near-surface moored sea mines.

The system also has four cameras and uses an algorithm to recognize potential mine-like objects.

Northrop said it is working with partners Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd., and Fujitsu Limited to deliver and install the devices.
