We’re supporting a team of researchers at the University of Rhode Island in their efforts to document four historic submarines, including one Nazi Germany U-boat, to preserve this rich history for generations to come.
This is an exclusive opportunity to study the evolution of underwater naval warfare in a way few others understand.
Dr. Rod Mather is leading a team of researchers who are working to submit the four submarines to the National Register of Historic Places. Mission Specialists’ support directly impacted the way we will learn about an important chapter of U.S. history.
The scope of the projects includes multiple dives to the wrecks of three U.S. submarines and one Nazi Germany U-boat with Dr. Mather’s research team to see history come alive off the coast of Rhode Island. All dives have been completed using OceanGate, Inc.’s manned submersible, Cyclops 1, its launch platform, and support vessels. Cyclops 1 is a five-person manned submersible operated under a letter of approval from the U.S. Coast Guard as an Oceanographic Research Vessel.
You’re invited to join us as a Mission Specialist to support this exciting project.
