Abstract:

U.S. Navy Expeditionary Warfare strategy requires in-stride clearance in support of an amphibious assault. This need is documented in the Mission Need Statement MNS for Shallow Water Mine Countermeasures SWMCM, the Operational Requirements Document ORD for SWMCM Mines Obstacles, and numerous studies on littoral, amphibious, and mine warfare. Truly in-stride clearance presents a significant technical challenge. Such capability does not exist, and no system under development provides a solution. Concept Assessment addresses this challenge by surveying, evaluating, and investigating relevant technologies that may advance in-stride assault capabilities.
