Abstract : Sea Lion 1 has been mechanically reconfigured and refurbished in order to make the vehicle sea worthy and capable of meeting NRL's needs as a research and development platform. The hull has been extended by 16 inches and the electronics bay modified to improve payload capacity. These modifications included the lowering of the fore planes and splitting the fuel into two compartments. The nose cone was also modified for easy access and removal for sensor installation and maintenance. Sea Lion 1 was also electrically refurbished in order to insure the vehicle is fully functional and operationally sound. Some sensors were upgraded and the entire electrical system checked, refurbished and calibrated.
