Abstract:

The SSK conversion is a modification of the SS 214 resulting from extensive interior and exterior structural changes and the addition of certain sonar and fire control equipment. Its primary mission will be to serve as an anti-submarine submarine, and it has been equipped to hover on station for the purpose of detecting and attacking enemy submarines. Since new principles of operation are involved, the Bureau of Ships through Special Devices Center has requested that a human engineering study be made to determine the optimal arrangement of the system.
