U.S. NAVY'S NSWC TEAM ACHIEVES CASREP FREE STATUS FOR MINE NEUTRALIZATION SYSTEM
Thursday, October 30, 2014

WASHINGTON - The United States Navy's Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City (NSWC PCD), the In-Service Engineering Agent for the SLQ-48 Mine Neutralization System (MNS), achieved casualty free status in September NAVSEA reported. Casualty free status is conferred after a system operates without the logging of an equipment deficiency or technical issue in the Fleet's Casualty Reporting (CASREP) system. CASREP free status is a significant achievement for any system.

The SLQ-48 MNS is an unmanned submersible that is used to examine, classify and identify an undersea object to determine if it is a mine. Once identified as a mine the system is capable of placing an explosive charge to destroy the mine. This system was originally designed for the U.S. Navy's Avenger class mine sweepers and the Osprey classes mine hunters. Although now the Navy only employs the Avenger class ships, NSWC PCD engineers support both classes as the Ospreys continue to be used by our foreign allies.

NSWC PCD is the AN/SLQ-48 In-Service Engineering Agent (ISEA) for the U.S. Navy mine countermeasures Fleet, as well as for selected foreign ships. In that ISEA role, its government and contractor team provides Fleet support on combat systems, like the SLQ-48, on U.S. Navy and foreign military mine warfare class ships.
