SEAMOR Marine – a Critical Partner in Successful Trial of New UXO Detection System | Ocean News and Technology

SEAMOR Marine’s Chinook ROV is making waves in the field of undetonated explosive ordnance (UXO) detection after a successful compact magnetometer integration with subsea engineers at Ocean Floor Geophysics.

Magnetometers detect disturbances in the earth’s magnetic field and are critical instruments for locating undetonated explosives along the ocean floor, referred to by the military as UXOs. Magnetometers are typically bulky, towed by a manned marine vessel or pick-up truck-sized autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV), and scan the seafloor through a process that is arduous, time-consuming, and expensive.
