On 25 November 2021, Naval Group announced the creation of the MCM R&D Centre of Excellence at its subsidiary Naval Group Belgium. It is the third Centre of Excellence created by Naval Group outside France, the company says, which will work jointly with Belgian partners.

The MCM Lab is one of the key components of the industrial cooperation plan associated with the Belgian-Dutch Remote Mine Countermeasure replacement programme awarded in 2019 to Belgium Naval & Robotics, the consortium made up of Naval Group and ECA Group. This consortium was chosen by the Belgian and Royal Netherlands navies to supply 12 MCMVs and a toolbox composed of around 100 drones.
