Mobile Inshore Undersea Warfare Unit


Mobile Inshore Undersea Warfare Unit

A Mobile Inshore Undersea Warfare Unit (MIUWU) is a component of the United States Navy's Force Protection Package tasked with providing seaward security to joint logistics over-the-shore operations from either a port or harbor complex or unimproved beach sites. The mobile inshore undersea warfare unit is equipped with mobile radar, sonar, and communications equipment located within mobile elements, such as a tent, specially modified HMMWV, or truck-mountable container.

MIUW units were until recently, exclusively a component of the Naval Reserves, but following the events of September 11, 2001, active duty units have been formed.
