Boeing LMRS Launches from Surface Ship

Boeing's Long-term Mine Reconnaissance System (LMRS) is dropped into the Atlantic Ocean from a telescoping torpedo launcher aboard the SV Ranger to begin its underwater surveillance test mission. LMRS uses two sonar systems, an advanced computer and its own inertial navigation system to survey the ocean floor for up to 60 hours. The system is designed to withstand both torpedo-style and surface launches.
