The Vulcan Counter Limpet Mine System™ (VCLMS™) is a complete system developed for rapid deployment against multiple underwater targets.


Designed around the highly-renowned Vulcan disruptor, the VCLMS System provides the charge bodies in addition to modular magnetic stands, underwater capsules, firing cables and various projectiles. The components are contained in convenient “tool rolls” for easy handling and deployment in small vessels.


The system provides twenty Vulcan disruptors in five separate tool rolls giving users the ability to defeat multiple threats on multiple vessels. Thanks to many years of experience in the field of counter-mining and ship's protection, we believe that we have thought about just about every problem an operator can face and the kit incorporates all the tools required to get the job done.


The entire kit is supplied in a transit case making it ideal for rapid transportation on military and civil aircraft anywhere in the world.
