This report summarizes over ten years of work on problems in the field of mine countermeasures. It deals with problems of clustering--of distinguishing between mine contacts and non-mine contacts on the basis of the accumulation of sonar contacts from them. Another portion of the report deals with precise navigation, using the ANUQS-1 sonar with triplane and with acoustic transponders as navigational referents. A final portion of the report deals with the design and performance of a radio-controlled catamaran for marking the position of sonar contacts or for placing a destructive charge near the mine.
