Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to provide the Navy with quantitative data on mine behavior. The Instrumented Mine will provide a means of measuring the interaction of a mine with its environment and how environmental factors influence mine burial. This information can be used to enhance mine burial models. Knowledge obtained from long-term measurement of mine dynamics in diverse environments will improve the U.S. Navy s tactical advantage when operating in mined waters.
