ABSTRACT

Underwater Security Vehicle   [open pdf - 2MB]

"The objective of the Underwater Security Vehicle (USV) program was to evaluate the feasibility of using an underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) system to aid in underwater security. The USV system is to be used to assess designated contacts in a near-shore environment augmenting existing security systems such as the Waterside Security System (WSS). A series of demonstration tests were conducted to evaluate the capabilities of various commercially available ROVs. Based on the available systems and mission requirements, a specification was developed for the USV proof-of-concept system. The system procured was the Benthos SUPER SeaROVER vehicle with the Smiths Hi-Scan 600 sonar."
