Abstract
MCM or Mine Counter Measures includes many possible search and destroy strategies each with it's own relative merits and disadvantages. One of the most promising techniques has been the use of towed Side Scan Sonars to perform channel conditioning surveys from ships and more recently from remotely controlled untethered vehicles. Since the technique only performs the search portion of the MCM task, suspicious targets must be located on or above the seafloor in absolute coordinates so that a subsequent more detailed investigation and possible disposal may be carried out. The purpose of the 1988 MCM Survey Trials then was to estimate the positioning accuracies to which bottom targets could be located using the towed Side Scan MCM technique and to compare the results with those predicted in the DREP Technical Memorandum 88-02.
