Abstract
Recent improvements in Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) technologies are making them increasingly attractive as mine hunting platforms by extending the reach of the sensors and weapons that are used in these operations. In this paper, we describe novel concepts of operations for AUVs performing Mine Counter Measure (MCM) exploratory operations. These concepts maximize the MCM effectiveness and minimize resources in MCM exploratory operations. In particular, the paper describes how previously un-modelled characteristics such as the aspect and range dependencies of mine detection show a significant influence on the mission effectiveness of a side scan sonar based system.
