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.

Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound.

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).

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

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)...

The Deep Submergence System Project was established in June 1965 in the aftermath of the loss of USS Thresher in 1963...

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

Printer-friendly version
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.

USS TRITON 1ST CIRCUMNAVIGATION OF THE EARTH UNDERWATER 21364
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Jun 14, 2017
This film made by General Dynamics shows the cruise of the submarine USS Triton (SSRN-586) around the world in 1960. Triton was one of the largest submarines of its era and equipped with twin nuclear reactors. The circumnavigation of the world was conducted under the command of famous submariner Edward L. Beach. This color film details life aboard Triton during that epochal trip, and shows its triumphant homecoming, including a visit from President Dwight Eisenhower. Triton was to be used as a radar picket submarine, but problems related to its design meant that it was eventually relegated to use as a command vessel, and then ingloriously decommission a mere ten years after its first cruise.

WHY EVEN ONE OHIO BALLISTIC MISSILE SUBMARINES IS ENOUGH FOR NORTH KOREA?
Defense Updates


Published on Jun 25, 2017


INTRODUCTION:

The Ohio class is a class of nuclear-powered submarines that is considered to be one of the most lethal platforms in the world. The US navy has 18 Ohio-class submarines: 14 ballistic missile submarines (SSBN) and 4 that were later converted to guided missile submarines (SSGN).

In this video, Defense Updates examine WHY EVEN ONE OF THE 14 OHIO BALLISTIC MISSILE SUBMARINES IS ENOUGH FOR NORTH KOREA?

Lets get started.

BACKGROUND

The Ohio-class boats entered service in the 1980s as a replacement for 5 different classes of fleet ballistic-missile submarines

Ohio class was created to be the ultimate nuclear deterrence.

The logic of nuclear deterrence is like this, while a first strike might wipe out a country’s land-based missiles and nuclear bombers, it’s very difficult to track a ballistic-missile submarine patrolling quietly in the depths of the ocean—and there’s little hope of taking them all out in a first strike.

Thus, ballistic-missile submarines promise the unstoppable hand of nuclear retribution—and should deter any sane adversary from attempting a first strike or resorting to nuclear weapons at all.

The end of the Cold War, and especially the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, resulted in the downsizing of U.S. nuclear forces. However, rather than retiring some of the oldest boats as originally planned, the Navy decided to refit 4 of the 18 Ohio-class subs to serve as cruise missile carriers to launch conventional non nuclear attacks against ground and sea targets—starting with the USS Ohio.

STRUCTURE/ SPEED/RANGE

The Ohio-class submarines are the largest submarines ever built for the U S Navy having a displacement of 16764 tons. These have length of 560 ft (170 m).

It has a speed of around 20 to 25 knots. Being nuclear powered it has unlimited range and endurance, limited only by food supplies.

Each Ohio-class submarine has two crews of 154 officers and enlisted personnel, designated Gold and Blue, who take turns departing on patrols that last an average of 70 to 90 days underwater—with the longest on record being 140 days by the USS Pennsylvania. An average of a month is spent between patrols, with resupply facilitated by 3 large-diameter supply hatches.

NUCLEAR BALLSTIC MISSILES

The 14 Ballistic Missile Submarines of Ohio class together carry approximately 50% of the total US active inventory of strategic thermonuclear warheads.

The first 8 Ohio-class boats were originally built to launch the Trident I C4 ballistic missile—an advanced version of the earlier Poseidon SLBM. However, by now all of these are armed with the superior Trident II D5 ballistic missile, which has 50 % greater range and is capable of very accurate strikes, which could enable them to precisely target military installations as a first-strike weapon.

Trident II D5 has a range of 11000 km and Ohio class ballistic missile submarines carries 24 of these.

As a Trident II D5 reenters the atmosphere at speeds of up to Mach 24, it splits into up to 8 independent reentry vehicles, each with a 100- or 475-kiloton nuclear warhead. In short, a full salvo from an Ohio-class submarine—which can be launched in less than one minute—could unleash up to 24 multiple 8 i.e. 192 nuclear warheads.

This is enough to destroy the whole nation.

TORPEDOS

Ohio-class submarines also come armed with four 21-inch tubes that can launch Mark 48 torpedoes.

Mark 48 torpedo has a similar range of 50 km. it has 650 lb (290 kg) high explosive warhead.

Mk-48 torpedoes can be guided from a submarine by wires attached to the torpedo. They can also use their own active or passive sensors to execute programmed target search, acquisition, and attack procedures. The torpedo is designed to detonate under the keel of a surface ship, breaking the keel and destroying its structural integrity. In the event of a miss, it can circle back for another attempt.

However, these are intended primarily for self-defense—a ballistic missile submarine’s job isn’t to hunt enemy ships and submarines, but to lie as low and quiet as possible to deny rivals any means of tracking their movements.

SENSORS:

The surface search, navigation and fire control radar is BPS 15A I/J-band radar. The sonar suite includes: IBM BQQ 6 passive search sonar, Raytheon BQS 13, BQS 15 active and passive high-frequency sonar, BQR 15 passive towed array from Western Electric, and the active BQR 19 navigation sonar from Raytheon. Kollmorgen Type 152 and Type 82 periscopes are fitted.

The Ohio submarines are also being upgraded with the Lockheed Martin AN/BQQ-10(V4) sonar processing system under the acoustic-rapid commercial-off-the-shelf insertion (A-RCI) program.

These sensors enable the OHIO class to detect enemy vessels from far off.

WHY THE FUTURE OF THE U.S. NAVY COULD BE 'ROBOTIC SUBMARINES' || WARTHOG 2017
Warthog Defense


Published on Aug 22, 2017
One of the first Navy lines of effort aimed at fielding a robotic submarine is the Extra Large UUV or XL-UUV program. HII is teaming with Boeing to bring that project to fruition.
Unmanned underwater vehicles might mean big business for shipbuilders if the technology lives up to its promise. It is too early to gauge the exact size of the future UUV market and the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) market may not be a good comparison.

Royal Navy Sacks Coked-Up Submariners

October 28, 2017 by Reuters

(Reuters) – Britain’s navy has fired nine sailors serving on a nuclear-armed submarine after they tested positive for using cocaine, the country’s defense ministry said on Saturday.

The crew were from HMS Vigilant, one of four Royal Navy submarines which operate the Trident nuclear missile system.

“We do not tolerate drugs misuse by service personnel. Those found to have fallen short of our high standards face being discharged from service,” a Royal Navy spokesman said.

The Daily Mail newspaper reported that the sailors had failed drugs tests while the submarine was docked in the United States to pick up nuclear warheads and undergo work, and the sailors had been accommodated in hotels on shore.

A defense ministry spokesman declined to comment on the location of the incident but said: “There is no evidence to suggest any individual was under the influence while performing their duties.”

The ministry also confirmed the submarine’s commander had been relieved of his command pending investigation, but declined to give details. Previous reports said this was due to an earlier unrelated incident.

Britain’s four nuclear-armed submarines each carry eight operational missiles and 40 nuclear warheads, and have a crew of 135. Since 1969 Britain has had at least one nuclear-armed submarine on patrol at all times.
