The Office of Naval Research has published a summary of a test project involving dolphins and AUVs working together during the Iraq war. REMUS AUVs were launched in the sea channels near the port of Umm Qasr, where they systematically used side-scan to search for possible mines. Potential mines were marked with sound-emitting beacons. Trained dolphins used the beacons to find the potential mines and inspected each target to determined if it was really a mine or not. They notified Navy demolition crews to handle any live mines.
