    DEEP SEA DETECTIVES: MYSTERY U-BOAT OF WORLD WAR I
    A veteran of the brutal naval battles of World War I, the German submarine UB-107 was discovered on the floor of the North Sea in 1985. An important find itself, it harbored a surprise that would force experts to re-examine the records of the epic conflict. Join John Chatterton and the DEEP SEA DETECTIVES as they descend 100 feet into cold and murky waters to explore this remarkable site. Entwined in the remains of the submarine is the wreck of the British steamship Malvina, which was supposedly sunk a week after the UB-107, and thirty miles away! Historians and divers help piece together the clues left behind by these ghosts of World War I.

    UNDERWATER EXPLOSIVES & ANTI-SUBMARINE WARFARE U.S. NAVY FILM "CLOSE IS NEAR ENOUGH" 52084
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Feb 16, 2017
    This “unclassified” 1974 US Navy film opens with a German submarine crew silently stalking and then firing upon an Allied vessel. During WW2, the film says, 47 major ships, 52 submarines, and countless lives were lost. The war also taught the Navy that close exposure to an underwater blast can severely damage a ship’s hull or propulsion systems, putting it out of commission. The film’s title, “Close Is Near Enough,” appears on the screen at mark 03:20 as the narrator echoes those same words. For this reason, the Navy established the Underwater Explosions Research Division (UERD) in 1946 to find way to strengthen ships’ hulls. The film shows footage of ships earmarked for the scrapyard being torpedoed as part of the test process before explaining what happens to a vessel during an underwater explosion (mark 04:45). We watch as a highly compressed gas bubble pulsates before creating a series of water plumes above the water line. The bubble causes severe pressure on any nearby object with the shockwave damaging a ship, even lift it into the air and slamming it back into the water. The film shows high-speed cameras being fitted into test ships to film damage (mark 07:30) with the captured footage shown and the details later analyzed (mark 11:00). The information ultimately will be used for new design techniques. There is a look of the UERD’s Submarine Shock Simulation Vehicle to evaluate the strength of submarines (mark 12:00) with additional footage of tests conducted using the vehicle as well as other ship explosions (mark 15:57) and experiments using simulated underwater mines (mark 18:00).

    We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment! See something interesting? Tell people what it is and what they can see by writing something for example: "01:00:12:00 -- President Roosevelt is seen meeting with Winston Churchill at the Quebec Conference."

    US Navy Prototype "House" to Live in Extreme Deep Water - Rare Vintage Documentary
    Daily Documentary



    Published on Mar 4, 2017
    Very interesting documentary about old US navy prototype intended to be used as habitat in extreme deep water.

    After the completion of Sealab II , the habitat was modified to a depth of more than 180 m (600 feet) and was named Sealab III . In February 1969 the habitat was lowered at San Clemente , California. In the repair attempt of a helium leak, one of the four divers suffered a fatal accident due to lack of respiratory lime, causing all other programs of the US Navy to be discontinued.

    Public domain film from the US Navy, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. Bad color on this film was beyond correction, so it was removed, leaving the film black and white.
    The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

    USS Tringa (ASR-16) was a Chanticleer-class submarine rescue ship of the United States Navy. She was laid down on 12 July 1945 at Savannah, Georgia, by the Savannah Machine & Foundry Co.; launched on 25 June 1946; sponsored by Mrs. Nola Dora Vassar, the mother of Curtis L. Vassar, Jr., missing in action; and commissioned on 28 January 1947, Lt. Comdr. Paul C. Cottrell in command...

    Tringa completed overhaul early in March 1970. During refresher training, she received orders reassigning her to Submarine Division 121 based at Key West, Florida...

    Over the next five years, Tringa alternated tours of duty in the Mediterranean with service along the east coast of the United States...

    In June 1973, Tringa rushed to the rescue when Johnson Sea Link accident disaster struck a civilian deep-submergence vehicle test project. On the 17th, she received orders to go to the aid of Dr. Edwin Link, whose submersible, the Johnson Sea Link, was reported "in distress, bottomed in approximately 360 feet of water with four men on board." ...Though Tringa divers tried to revive the two men in the after chamber of the submersible by warming it with HeO and hot water, the two men were pronounced dead at 0800 on 20 June. The two men in the forward chamber survived...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mystic-c...

    Mystic class is a class of Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicles (DSRVs), designed for rescue operations on submerged, disabled submarines of the U.S. Navy or foreign navies. The two subs of the class had never been used for this purpose, and were replaced by the Submarine Rescue Diving Recompression System...

    Features

    DSRVs are designed for quick deployment in the event of a submarine accident. DSRVs are transportable by truck, aircraft, ship, or by specially configured attack submarine. At the accident site, the DSRV works with either a "mother" ship or "mother" submarine. The DSRV dives, conducts a sonar search, and attaches to the disabled submarine’s hatch. DSRVs can embark up to 24 personnel for transfer to the "mother" vessel.

    The DSRV also has an arm to clear hatches on a disabled submarine and a combined gripper and cable cutter. The gripper is able to lift 1,000 pounds (450 kg)...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Submarin...

    The Submarine Rescue Diving Recompression System (SRDRS) is a remotely operated underwater vehicle and its associated systems intended to replace the Mystic class deep submergence rescue vehicle for the United States Navy. Based on the Royal Australian Navy Submarine rescue vehicle Remora, the system is capable of rapidly deploying to a designated location, mounting to a vessel of opportunity, detecting and preparing the area around a downed submarine and submerging to great depths (2000ft/600m) to give aid and retrieve members of its crew. The SDRS then allows for the decompression of the crew...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Thre...)

    The second USS Thresher (SSN-593) was the lead boat of her class of nuclear-powered attack submarines in the United States Navy. Her loss at sea in the North Atlantic during deep-diving tests approximately 220 miles east of Boston, Massachusetts, on 10 April 1963 was a watershed event for the U.S. Navy, leading to the implementation of a rigorous submarine safety program known as SUBSAFE. Judging by the 129 crew members and shipyard personnel who were killed in the incident, historic context and significance, the sinking of Thresher was then, and remains today, the world's worst submarine disaster...

    The daring US wiretapping operation carried out 400 feet underwater that helped steal Soviet secrets and end the Cold War
    • Operation Ivy Bells was launched by the US in 1972 but details remain classified
    • The daring wiretapping operation was conducted 400 feet underwater in the Sea of Okhotsk off Russia's east coast
    • It allowed the US to uncover a goldmine of intelligence from the Soviet Union
    • The wiretapping idea is believed to have shifted the Cold War in favor of the US
    • America was able to receive Soviet intelligence for a decade until a former NSA employee leaked details of the operation for $35,000 in 1980
    • A former US Navy diver said he believes the old-fashioned surveillance methods could still be happening today

    On January 20, 2013, the Seawolf-class attack submarine USS Jimmy Carter left her home port in Bangor, Washington. Less than two months later, the submarine appeared at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii for repairs.

    It was all quite mysterious. During her time at sea, we don’t know where Jimmy Carter was or what her crew of nearly 150 were precisely doing. The Seawolf class is one of the most secretive weapons in America’s arsenal, and information about the Navy’s “Silent Service” is difficult to discover. . . by design.

    Life Aboard the USS Florida (SSGN-728)
    Planes, Trains & Automobiles



    Published on Jul 18, 2014
    On 19 March 2011, in conjunction with other U.S. Navy and Royal Navy warships, Florida fired scores of Tomahawk missiles at Libyan air defense targets as part of Operation Odyssey Dawn. The Tomahawk missile strikes allowed British, French, and allied warplanes to begin enforcing a no-fly zone over Libya, preventing Muammar Gaddafi from using his air force to attack rebels in his country. This was the first combat action for the Florida or any other Ohio-class submarine. During Operation Odyssey Dawn, Florida launched 93 Tomahawk missiles, with 90 effective, out of her total magazine of about 160 missiles.
    Of the four Ohio-class SSGNs in the U.S. Navy, Florida was the only one that was available for use in Operation Odyssey Dawn since she was the only one that had been assigned to cruise the Mediterranean Sea. Some other Tomahawk missiles were fired by American surface ships and by a few Royal Navy nuclear submarines.
    On February 15, 2013, the crew of the USS Florida were awarded the Navy Unit Commendation having "distinguished itself in action against the enemy" during Operation Odyssey Dawn in 2011.
