Abstract:

The Remotely Operated VehicleAssessment and Response ROVAR project demonstrated the feasibility of using a remotely operated vehicle ROV to provide an appropriate response to underwater threats. Several currently available, nonlethal response techniques were demonstrated on the Underwater Security Vehicle USV under simulated operating conditions. The ROV successfully tracked targets and can be used as an effective response device against underwater diver targets.
