Title: Mine Warfare Transition of Platform


1
Mine Warfare Transition of Platform
NDIA Brief 22 FEB 06 Crystal City, Hyatt Regency
2799 Jefferson Davis Hwy Capt Miller Brief Time
230 310pm
  • Capt Terry Miller
  • Expeditionary Warfare Division
  • Mine Warfare Branch (N752)

2
Outline
  • Mine Countermeasures (MCM) Transition
  • Dedicated to Organic Mine Countermeasures (OMCM)
    to Littoral Combat Ship (LCS)
  • National Level Requirements
  • OPLAN Requirements Geography
  • MCM Force Structure Options Roadmap

3
Dedicated Force to Organic MCM(Where We Have
Been)
  • An Evolution, not revolution
  • All about Speed and Access for Sea Lift
  • Early OMCM Concept
  • Carrier Strike Group (CSG) Based
  • Early Punch Through
  • Dedicated force still required
  • OMCM force provided time and speed until
    dedicated force arrives (TPFDD for Dedicated SMCM
    is approximately C66)
  • MCM Force-21 Study
  • 50 savings on MCM operational timeline

4
Organic MCM to LCS MCM Mission Packages
(MPs)(Today)
  • Still all about Speed and Access but now
    provides
  • Persistence
  • MCM Capability within LCS
  • Provides Ability to Mass Capabilities and Effects
  • Improves Operational Reach
  • Provides Flexible Response and Reconfiguration
    Capability
  • Conducts MCM operations in advance of/outside of
    CSG/ESG operational areas
  • LCS with OMCM reduces MCM operational timeline by
    70

5
Joint Undersea Superiority Study (JUSS)
  • Study initiated by the Undersea Superiority Joint
    Integrating Concept (JIC), in coordination with
    the United States Pacific Command (USPACOM) and
    the Services.
  • Produced the Functional Needs Analysis (FNA),
    which identified capability gaps and redundancies
    in undersea warfare.
  • Out of 28 critical capabilities, 11 were Mine
    Warfare, which 7 pertained to Mine
    Countermeasures
  • Gaps based on 2012 force
  • Gaps mapped back to current force for comparison

Dedicated Force Airborne MCM Where We are Today
  • PPBE (PR 07 ObjectiveSustain AMCM Force During
    Transition to Future Systems)
  • Fatigue Life Extension (FLEX)
  • Extend service life of MH-53E airframe from 2012
    to 2017
  • AN/AQS-24 (Airborne Mine Hunting Sonar) Upgrade
    improves processing and provides Electro-Optical
    Identification (EOID)
  • IOC in 2005
  • MH-53E Airborne Mine Neutralization System
    provides mine neutralization contingency
    capability
  • Provide Kill System
  • Hunt and sweep moored contact and proud bottom
    magnetic/acoustic mines
  • Shortfalls
  • Low signature and Buried mine detection
  • CSG/ESG Operability
  • OPLAN time-line response from CONUS
  • Removal of man and mammal from the minefield
  • Requires Amphib Sea Lift and Big Deck access

Advantage High Capacity Sweep Operations
IMPROVES KILL CHAIN
7
Dedicated Force Surface MCM Where We are Today
  • PPBE (PR 07 ObjectiveSustain SMCM Force During
    Transition to Future Systems)
  • Decommissioning of MHC-51 (4/year starting FY
    06).
  • Upgrade Plan for MCM-1 Class Ships
  • Mid-Life Upgrade Plan continues
  • Diesel engine PIP and engine overhauls
  • High Frequency Wideband (HFWB) Sonar Improvements
  • IOC in FY09
  • Expendable Mine Neutralization System (EMNS)
  • IOC in FY08
  • Hunt and Sweep Moored contact and Proud Bottom
    magnetic/acoustic mines
  • Shortfall
  • Low signature and buried mine detection
  • CSG/ESG Operability
  • OPLAN time-line response from CONUS
  • Removal of man and mammal from the minefield
  • Requires MCS/Support ship

Advantage Sweeping Operations
IMPROVES KILL CHAIN
8
Dedicated Force Underwater MCM Where We are Today
  • Naval Special Clearance Team (NSCT) ONE
  • Very Shallow Water MCM Capability from 10 to 40
  • Full Detect to Engage
  • Specialized EOD MCM Detachments
  • Engage ONLY
  • MCM Kill Chain
  • Mine Exploitation
  • Shortfalls
  • Man and mammal in the minefield
  • Requires Amphib sea lift and well deck support

Organic MCM Fielding Cumulative Number of
Systems Fielded
  • USV Sweep system
  • Wide Area Clearance/Long Endurance Sweep
  • IOC 2011
  • Low Frequency Broad Band/UUV (LFBB/UUV) in ST
  • Provides Buried Mine Detection
  • IOC 2012
  • Speed and Assured Access Capability Achieved in
    2010.
  • Build Capacity level through 2018
  • Key Milestones complete
  • - Wide Area Clearance
  • - Low signature and buried Mine
    Detection
  • - Man and Mammal footprint in minefield
    minimized.

11
Transition Assumptions
  • Minimum 20 MIW MPs required along with dedicated
    force to fight war
  • Based on MCP analysis, operational availability,
    and training (ships crew)
  • CNA and WBB analysis
  • Estimates decommissioning dedicated force between
    2013-2016
  • USV Sweep initial procurement FY12 with delivery
    in FY14 (final capability for MCM MP)
  • Mission package delivery
  • Current delivery plan 22 mission packages by
    2015

RECOMMENDATION Decomm NET FY16

MCM Inventory (U)
Decision Point on Transition of Dedicated Force
Transition NET FY16
MCM Mission Package Complete Final Operating
Capability (systems fully integrated into the
Mission Packages) in FY18.
LCS Quantities based on number MIW Mission
Packages available, NOT available ships.

Conclusion
  • Combatant Commander requirements
  • Analysis indicates window for decommissioning
    between 2013-2016
  • Magnetic/Acoustic influence sweeping remains the
    critical shortfall until 2016
