Tracor Marine was tasked by Chesapeake Division Naval Engineering Command to perform a dive survey in areas off AUTEC Sites 1 and 2 at Andros Island, Bahamas. The survey was requested by Naval Underwater Systems Command NUSC, Newport to evaluate the existing bottom conditions at specific Site 1 and Site 2 locations previously marked by reference buoys. The topographic information was required in order to determine a location for the proposed ocean hauldown facility. Ideally, such a location would be in depths of approximately 40 feet with flat terrain and free of large obstructions. Information required by NUSC at Site 1 and Site 2 during the dive survey included bottom types, depths, possible platform locations, locations of obstruction, and possible cable routes through the reef line to shore.
