Italian Navy Clears WWII Bombs with the Help of Unmanned Systems

2 April 2015 - The Italian Navy (Marina Militare) has cleared four antique pieces of unexploded ordnance between the southern Tyrrhenian Sea and the northern Ionian Sea last week.

The clearance operations involved unmanned underwater vehicles (the Pluto Gigas) operating from the Gaeta class coastal mine hunter ITS Chioggia (M5560) along with the Operational Divers Group (GOS).

The first mine was neutralized from waters near Naples and an air dropped bomb was detonated near Salerno.  Another device was located near Taranto.  The operation, still ongoing, will relocate and neutralize a possible WW2 device located in the waters facing San Felice Circeo.
