AAC successfully demonstrated advanced mine hunting capabilities with the US Navy during the 2013 FLEX UxS Campaign, towing the unmanned high resolution synthetic aperture sonar (T-SAS) and detecting all exercise mines with increased area clearance rates. The FLEX demonstration offered the opportunity to operate in a high-clutter tactical mine warfare environment. T-SAS, as a mature and highly reliable system, was operational throughout the entire demonstration with over 60 hours of in-water operations.
