Seapower Interviews US Navy’s Littoral and Mine Warfare PEO
Advances in the USA’s littoral warfare capabilities include mine hunting lasers, UUVs, and Littoral Combat Ships. As the US Navy’s program executive officer for Littoral and Mine Warfare, Rear Admiral William E. Landay III oversees many of these developments. Landay is also responsible for finding ways to detect and destroy the improvised explosive devices (IEDs) that have killed or maimed hundreds of Marines and soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan; DID has covered those, too: ICE, JIN, Warlocks, iRobots, and more.
