NURC’s approach is to use modified COTS equipment to test new concepts inexpensively. In the presented concept of operations, an ASV reacquires a previously identified target (in the mine hunting phase) using its imaging sonar.NURC ANMCM-Neutralization conceptOnce the target location is known, an expendable aROV is released. The aROV position is determined from sonar imagery onboard the ASV. This minimal information is sent to the aROV via acoustic link so that it can converge towards the desired target. With this approach, complex and expensive sensors are removed from the expendable vehicle, which now becomes a simple actuation system that carries the neutralization payload, and this in turn greatly increases cost efficiency.[mappress]Source:  Nurc, June 24 , 2011; Italy: NURC Uses VideoRay ROV in Naval MCM-Neutralization Project View post tag: uses View post tag: ROV View post tag: Navallast_img read more
