QinetiQ North America (QNA) has approximately 27 years experience in the mine/countermine mission area. Our
expertise covers mine development, detection, and neutralization and has always been intertwined with deployment of
remote robotic systems. Our countermine payload systems have been used to detect limpet mines on ship hulls, antiassault
mines in shallow water and littoral zones and currently for clearance and render safe of land-based routes. In our
talk, we will address the challenges encountered in addressing the ongoing countermine mission over a diverse range of
operational scenarios, environmental conditions and strategic priorities.
