4 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance IdentificationOverviewOverview

5 Underwater Mines General Information: An underwater mine is an explosive device, which is placed in position to be exploded by a ship-like target and causes worthwhile damage under its intended conditions of firing. They range in explosive weight from 1lb to 3000lbs. When detonated they use the Boyle’s Law effect to sink the target. Underwater Mines

6 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines

7 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines In terms of availability, variety, cost-effectiveness, ease of deployment, and potential impact on joint expeditionary warfare, mines are perhaps the most attractive weapons available to any country determined to prevent U.S. naval forces from achieving sea control and power projection ashore. Because today’s expeditionary forces still have limited capabilities to deal with mines, they constitute a genuine asymmetric threat in the littorals. The number of countries with mines, mining assets, mine manufacturing capabilities, and the intention to export mines has grown dramatically in the last decade. In addition, the types, sophistication, and lethality of the mines available on the world market are rapidly increasing. Underwater Mines

8 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines There are seven types of underwater mines Underwater Mines

9 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Moored Mines: Are buoyant mines, primarily contact fired, but influence mines are currently deployed. External shapes are hemispheres or elongated hemispheres, and usually made of steel. Moored mines are connected by a cable to an anchor. Key ID features: Moored mines have anchors with mooring EYES, ARMS or SPINDLES. Mk-16 Moored Mine Underwater Mines

10 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines

11 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Bottom Mines: As the name states, Bottom Mines are mines that remain on the bottom. Most bottom mines are long cylinders with arming devices on the side. Key ID features: NO mooring eyes, arms, or spindles and transverse fuzing. Mk-56 Bottom Mine Underwater Mines

12 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Mine case construction: The case contains the explosive charge and all components to ARM, DETECT TARGETS, COUNT SHIPS, and SCUTTLE, STERILIZE, or FIRE the mine. Most mines contain a self-destruct device. Underwater Mines

13 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines There are three arming devices: Clock Starters Extenders Arming Devices Underwater Mines

14 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Clock starters: Hydrostatically operated device which either starts a clock running or opens and closes circuits to ELECTRICALLY arm the mine. It will be closest item to the electronics package. Soluble washers are used as a mechanical delay. They dissolve in the water allowing hydrostatic pressure to push in on the piston. Key ID feature: is a small raised lip and a piston. Underwater Mines

15 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification

16

17 Underwater Mines Extenders: Same as with the clock starters, hydrostatic pressure pushes on a piston to EXPLOSIVELY arm the mine. Key ID features: is a large raised lip. Underwater Mines

18 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification

19

20 Underwater Mines Arming Device: A Device that incorporates both a clock starter and extender mechanism into one unit. Underwater Mines

21 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Firing: Mines can be fired by either direct contact with the target or by sensing various signatures. We will discuss five different firing methods: Contact Pressure Magnetic Seismic Acoustic Underwater Mines

22 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Contact: Three different types. Impact-inertia: Utilizes internal firing devices. No external firing features. Easily confused with buoys. Underwater Mines

23 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Contact Horn: Two types. Chemical: Chemical horns are made of a soft metallic materials (lead). They contain electrolyte vials which when broken allow electrolyte to run between the plates providing electricity to the detonator. Switch: Not much different than a tilt rod. Underwater Mines

24 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification SwitchChemical Underwater Mines

25 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Galvanic: Saltwater is the electrolyte, the steel hull of the ship is one electrode, and the other is a cable or mine case. When the ship makes contact, it produces a electric charge and fires the mine. Underwater Mines

26 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Influence fired mines: Magnetic - Fired from the magnetic signature of a ship or submarine. Current mines uses a combination of Magnetic and Acoustic signatures. Key ID features: will be a smooth or concave tail cover. Underwater Mines

27 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Acoustic: Fires from an acoustic signature of a ship or sub. Fires primarily by looking for the intensity and duration of the noise. A straight acoustic fired mine is the most hazardous, hence; (1&3 rule applies) Key ID features: a smooth rubber diaphragm on the tail cover. Underwater Mines

28 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Pressure: Fires from a variation of pressures from the ship. Never used alone, must incorporate another firing system. (Mag-Press, Acoustic-Press) Key ID features: Rippled rubber diaphragm. Underwater Mines

29 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Seismic: Fires from acoustic signature and vibrations from the target. Seismic Influence Mechanisms are closely related to the Acoustic Influence Mechanism. They respond to low frequency sounds of acoustic energy which travels through the ocean seabed rather than through the water. A geophone is used to sense shaking or vibration through the mine case. Underwater Mines

30 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Safety Precautions for Moored and Bottom mines: HE (High Explosive) FRAG (Fragmentation) EMR (Electromagnetic Resonance) STATIC INFLUENCE Underwater Mines

31 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Destructor: General Information: They are used on land or water, all services use this system. They utilize MK 80 series GPLD bombs. The fuzing is a modified M904 fuze. It’s a aircraft laid mine that starts the arming process upon aircraft release. Firing: When the magnetic level reaches a certain level, or it senses vibration, it fires the bomb. Underwater Mines

32 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Key ID features: The letters DST are stamped on the arming and firing devices. Gold anodized plug in the charging well, gold anodized base plate, green anodized nose fuze. The bomb may have a white reflective strip midway around the body. Safety Precautions: HE, FRAG, EMR, STATIC, MAGNETIC, SEISMIC Underwater Mines

33 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance Identification Underwater Mines Limpet: Limpet mines are small swimmer placed mines that are attached to ships or other objects by magnets, epoxy, nails, studs, suction cups, or rope. Will usually have a flat surface on one side to mate to the target. Fuzing for limpet mines contain one or more time delay fuze. They are always considered as having an anti-withdrawal or anti-lift device. Limpet mines are designed to disable ships rather than sink them.They are placed on rudders, shafts, props, etc. Safety Precautions: HE, FRAG, ANTI-WITHDRAW Underwater Mines

34 Topic 7.0: Underwater Ordnance IdentificationTorpedoes Torpedoes: Torpedoes are defined as underwater guided missiles. Torpedoes sections include: Nose: Often contains the guidance equipment.
