I think some of the more current stuff that does the job isn't even ship-based, but helicopters operating in close support. They can cover a bigger
area more quickly and since it's just a sounding device or dredge on a tow line, it's not like they're risking much with a hull in the water. Then
depending on what or where it is, they'll hit it with the dredge, drop demoliton divers, or use the ASW stuff like torpedos or depth charges.
