The Navy is in need of an organic, inexpensive, swift method to neutralize or sweep waterborne mines. This paper presents an alternative to current mine countermeasure technologies that fulfill this criteria - the use of the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) to clear a minefield. Our experimental and modeling study strongly suggest high efficiency of the JABS for mine clearance in the very shallow water (depth less than 12.2 m).
