Essentially just a big solid fuel rocket in the shape of a standard missile, the Versatile Mine Emplacement Vehicle (VMEV) deploys a number of mines from a standard missile launcher. For example, a Valor class missile corvette could deploy 120 Alpha mines in a half-hour from its four missile barbettes.
Controlled by the robot brain of the aft-most mine, the VMEV burns off its motor quickly, then releases the individual mines, which adjust their courses with their own onboard motors to take up their allotted position.
