The YFU-44 Deep Depth Test Facility is a converted LCU equipped and instrumented for underwater torpedo launchings, for underwater transducer tests, and for the study of ocean and target acoustic phenomena. Underwater tests may be conducted at any depth down to 600 feet from a submersible frame lowered through a well in the ship. An air-conditioned room contains the necessary instrumentation for the acquisition, analysis, and recording of test data. If additional instrumentation is required, the vessel can provide facilities to accommodate a mobile van. The location of the equipment permanently installed aboard the vessel is shown.
