Sea Fox is a FO (=fiber-optic) controlled underwater drone manufactured by Atlas Elektronik, Germany, and is used for identification and clearance of bottom mines and moored mines. The warhead of the Sea Fox is produced by Dynamit Nobel Defence.

 

Modern mines are filled with extremely insensitive explosives which cannot be detonated with conventional clearing charges. Therefore, Dynamit Nobel Defence designed the warhead of Sea Fox as a shaped charge warhead. This construction releases the necessary energy density during the explosion to have insensitive explosives detonated.

 

With the DND-warhead the Sea Fox is able to destroy all bottom mines and moored mines as well as other UXO (= Unexploded Ordnance) such as torpedoes, bombs and other ordnance under water.
