intended to improve the present hand-held mine detection system by making it sensitive to both metallic and nonmetallic mines.
Off-route Smart Mine Clearance (ORSMC). This Army system utilizes a HUMVEE modified for low observability to serve as a decoy or guinea pig against smart mines designed to deliver a projectile against armored vehicles.
The following naval systems will be included in Phase II:
Near-term mine reconnaissance system. The NMRS is a 21-inch-diameter torpedo-shaped UUV to be deployed, controlled, and recovered via fiberoptic link from a submarine. Its purpose is to serve as a covert minefield reconnaissance vehicle capable of transmitting its data in real time.
Littoral remote sensing (Generation Two). Includes several advancements over Generation One, particularly with respect to the fusion of data from material assets.
Advanced Lightweight Influence Sweep System (ALISS). The ALISS concept utilizes advanced acoustic and magnetic techniques to sweep influence mines.
UUV advanced sensors. This ATD emphasizes advanced sensors developed for use by a 21-inch-diameter UUV. The sensors consist of a toroidal volume search sonar, a side-looking sonar, a synthetic aperture sonar, and a superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) magnetic sensor.
