NCEL OCEAN ENGINEERING PROGRAM, MARCH 1966-MARCH 1967
NAVAL CIVIL ENGINEERING LAB PORT HUENEME CA
Ocean engineering will provide man with the native urge for exploration and acquisition, and to observe and perform those functions he considers necessary to complete his mission. Some explorations will be at diver depths and will expose man directly to the undersea environment. These methods of exploration are distinctly different, and yet they complement one another because they impose similar demands on technology and issue a challenge to the many disciplines of engineering and science. The publication documents the efforts and research undertaken by the Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory in answer to this challenge. The period covered is, roughly, from March 1966 to March 1967, although the techniques described are results of work much deeper in the past, and the technology envisioned represents a long stride into the future.
