Abstract : Remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) can play a variety of roles in the protection of marine assets against waterborne threats. The Underwater Security Vehicle program, sponsored by the Defense Nuclear Agency, was developed as an assessment tool to complement other security systems. The demonstration system, a Benthos Super SeaROVER vehicle equipped with a Smiths lb-Scan 600 sonar, has been successfully used to acquire, track, and intercept designated diver targets. Current efforts include expanding the detection capacity of the vehicle and the addition of non-damaging response techniques....
