    The RN are among the world leaders on MCM and UMM Qasr has been their area of operations for many years. Conventional aspects of MCM remain paramount but certainly any system that will keep the human operator at distance from danger is to be encouraged. They use REMUS, Seafox, and Cobra as remote systems but are not impressed at the proclaimed Power Point presentations of newer systems until such systems are designed exclusively for MCM with proven software and reliability.
