Abstract : The Marine Physical Laboratory (MPL) of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Deep Submergence Laboratory (DSL) have provided the second phase of a long term program to provide technical, engineering, and scientific support to Submarine Development Group One (SDG 1) to enhance performance of their missions, including support of ocean research and to investigate the sea floor using both manned and unmanned vehicles. The support has taken two forms. First, participation in ongoing programs of SDG 1 by MPL personnel in order to better understand the operations to provide assistance in making them more cost effective and to build long term continuity to complement the skills of the Naval Personnel who rotate through assignments at SDG 1. Second, to carry out engineering and user related activities to enhance the capabilities of SDG 1 seafloor search, recovery, and research support systems.
