Alatau , the KNF's first Russian-built Lida (Project 10750E)-class mine countermeasure (MCM) vessel, will now be capable of surveying and protecting the northeastern coast of the Caspian Sea using the UMIS in an autonomous mode to keep the ship and crew safe, the company said in a 16 May statement.

The UMIS consists of the A9-M autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), K-STER identification and mine disposal vehicles, and a single multifunction console integrating the mission management software suite.
