Abstract:

There are underwater munitions sites around the world where the quantity and the type of munitions are either unknown or not very well documented. These sites are unsafe and can t be utilized for any other purpose. The sites need to be surveyed and all munitions identified. The National Unmanned Systems Shared Resource Center NUSSRC located at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division NSWC PCD has multiple Office of Naval Research ONR Mine Countermeasure MCM Unmanned Underwater Vehicle UUV systems integrated with advanced sonar, magnetic and electro-optic sensors. These systems provide a capability for experimentation and demonstration of current Science and Technology ST and Research and Development RD programs assets as they apply to the detection and classification of underwater mines to be used for detection, assessment and characterization of underwater munitions.
