Investigation of Requirements and Capabilities of Next-Generation Mine Warfare Unmanned Underwater Vehicles
The current fleet of United States Navy Mine Countermeasures ships, the Avenger class, is reaching the end of its planned service life.
The fundamental goal of this research is to build from a broad set of experimental and theoretical data to a narrower set of scaling relations, heuristics, and trends that provide a roadmap for understanding laser ablation across relevant regimes.
The research was closely tied to work that was led by Nathan Newbury at NIST, and the principal goal was to support the development of advanced laser sources.
