Abstract:

The purpose of the report, and the objective of the Deep Oceanographic Survey Vehicle DOSV Project, are to define the state-of-the-art and availability of submersible instrumentation to conduct an underseas survey, the capability for conducting surveys with available Navy and commercial submersibles, the operational performance and design criteria, as deduced from operational experience, for a near-optimal DOSV, and to show those areas of ocean surveying where the manned submersible is best applied and has demonstrated its unique capability.
