Next generation mine countermeasures for the very shallow water zone in support of amphibious operations
MetadataShow full item record
This report describes system engineering efforts exploring next generation mine countermeasure (MCM) systems to satisfy high priority capability gaps in the Very Shallow Water (VSW) zone in support of amphibious operations. A thorough exploration of the problem space was conducted, including stakeholder analysis, MCM threat analysis, and current and future MCM capability research. Solution-neutral requirements and functions were developed for a bounded next generation system. Several alternative architecture solutions were developed that included a critical evaluation that compared performance and cost. The resulting MCM system effectively removes the man from the minefield through employment of autonomous capability, reduces operator burden with sensor data fusion and processing, and provides a real-time communication for command and control (C2) support to reduce or eliminate post mission analysis.
