Abstract:

Munitions, left behind from past military training and weapons testing activities, are present in shallow water 50 m at thousands of current and former Department of Defense DoD sites encompassing millions of acres. This design study addresses the munitions remediation in shallow water problem with a system that uses a Multi-Sensor Towbody MuST and surface vessel with support infrastructure. The hardware and software systems on the surface vessel leverage relatively low-cost, commercial off-the-shelf COTS components and reduce the number and complexity of expensive in water components.
