Abstract : THE Chesapeake Division, Naval Facilities Engineering Command and Underwater Construction Team Two were tasked by the Pacific Missile Test Center to install and stabilize two sea/shore interface cables sections at the Barking Sands Tactical Underwater Range, Kauai, Hawaii. The cables, each, one mile long, interconnected with two deep sea cables, approximately one mile offshore and two land cables located on shore. Additional tasks, assigned to the work force at the same location, included a cable repair and splice on one existing cable and the stabilization of three cables including the repaired cable section. A Navy YC barge was outfitted for the cable laying operation and towed to the operation site by a commercial tug chartered for the project. Preparations for the project commenced in May 1977. The installation of the cables, cable repair and splicing operations were completed in July 1977. Stabilization of the two sea/shore interface cables and the three existing cables was completed in September 1977.
