Full version Munitions Detection Using Unmanned Underwater Vehicles Equipped with Advanced

  • 4 years ago
There are underwater munitions sites around the world where the quantity and the type of munitions are either unknown or not very well documented. These sites are unsafe and can't be utilized for any other purpose. The sites need to be surveyed and all munitions identified. The National Unmanned Systems Shared Resource Center (NUSSRC) located at the Naval SurfaceWarfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) has multiple Office of Naval Research (ONR) Mine Countermeasure (MCM) Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) systems integrated with advanced sonar, magnetic and electro-optic sensors. These systems provide a capability for experimentation and demonstration of current Science and Technology (S&T) and Research and Development (R&D) programs assets as they apply to the detection and classification of underwater mines to be used for detection, assessment and characterization of underwater munitions.
