Focus – AMCM: The Mine Sweeping Mission

Focusing on the AMCM Mission – and Beyond: Getting the Sailor out of the Minefield By CAPT George Galdorisi, USN (Ret.)

Few naval professionals would disagree with the statement that mines – “weapons that wait” – represent one of the most vexing military challenges. Sea mines are perhaps the most lethal form of these weapons, as they are hard to find, difficult to neutralize, and can present a deadly hazard to any vessel – even those ships specifically designed to hunt them – and that even the threat of mines can stop any naval operation dead in its tracks .
