Description: The Airborne Mine Neutralization System (AMNS), also known as the AN/AQS-232, is a variant of the German Seafox expendable mine disposal vehicle. It is under development by Lockheed-Martin and Rheinmetall for deployment on US Navy's MH-60S and MH-53E helicopters.

The AMNS is intended to neutralize deeper moored mines and visible bottom mines working coupled with the AN/AQS-20A towed sonar system. The AMNS, along with the AQS-20 sonar system on the MH-60S helicopter, will employ the precise mine location gathered by the AQS-20 sonar system to neutralize it.
