    How it Works: Living in a Giant Submarine During Months - Submarine Documentary
    Daily Documentary



    Published on Sep 3, 2016
    A submarine is a submersible vessel capable of moving on the surface and under water; it is thus distinguished from other boats and ships which move on the surface only, and bathyscaphs that move only along the vertical axis.

    The civil use of the submarine concerns, essentially, oceanographic research and oil exploitation; its use for tourism or commercial transport remains anecdotal.

    That submarine on the main pic is beyond fucking huge. I can't imagine the challenge of navigating and moving that thing safely above water, let alone underwater.

    The Cold War: In Enemy’s Depth - The Submarine War (FULL DOCUMENTARY)
    Free Documentary



    Published on Mar 25, 2016
    The Cold War: In Enemy’s Depth

    In the depths of the oceans, the cold war was a deadly game, with more than 20 collisions between American and Soviet submarines and countless other tense encounters among vessels of various nations. The underwater arena was perhaps the most merciless of the cold war, with its promise of an icy grave to all the men whose damaged ships could no longer surface. The advent of the nuclear submarine in the 1950s revolutionized naval warfare. Many new ships were constructed, including top-secret espionage vessels such as the US Navy’s “research” submarine NR 1.

    For the first time on television, we are shown this ship and learn about the true missions of such stealth machines. The role of British, French and German submarines is also examined in this one-hour documentary.

    POSEIDON NUCLEAR MISSILE ABOARD POLARIS SUBMARINES DEPLOYMENT FILM 20814
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Sep 16, 2016
    “Our Crucial Deterrent” is a circa 1972 color United States Navy film that touts the importance of the Polaris and Poseidon submarine missile programs. An opening crawl quotes President John F. Kennedy in his 1961 State of the Union address and explains his plan to create the crucial deterrent, “a fleet that never will attack first, but will possess sufficient powers of retaliation concealed beneath the sea, to discourage any aggressor from launching an attack upon our security.” At mark 01:30, the viewer is shown scenes from a 1962 meeting and a discussion of how, on May 6, 1962, the submarine USS Ethan Allen (SCB-180) launched a nuclear-armed Polaris A-1 missile (shown at mark 01:50) that detonated at 11,000 feet over the South Pacific. That test was the only complete operational test of an American strategic missile. From there the film jumps to 1972 and near mark 03:00 we witness a successful Poseidon missile test, followed by a tour of one of the submarine that carry the weapons. “Missile-firing orders can come only from the President,” the narrator reminds the viewer at mark 07:35, “and will be acted upon only after absolute confirmation.”

    Mark 08:54 begins a brief history lesson on the system, including the SSM-N-8A Regulus, a ship- and submarine-launched, nuclear-armed turbojet-powered cruise missile deployed by the Navy from 1955 to 1964. That is followed by a look at the USS Nautilus (SSN-571), the world's first operational nuclear-powered submarine, and the USS Observation Island (EAG-154), a vessel which supported fleet ballistic missile development. Mark 13:40 shows the viewer the USS George Washington (SSBN-598), the world’s first operational ballistic missile submarine and the lead ship of her class of nuclear ballistic missile submarines. The USS Kamehameha (SSBN-642) is shown at sea at mark 19:00 as the narrator explains the standard rotation, training, and re-training of crews before embarking on another 60-day patrol. Looking toward the “future,” the narrator explains at mark 23:00 how President Richard M. Nixon, in January 1972, ordered the Department of Defense to “develop a program to build additional missile-launching subs carrying a new and far more effective missile” known as Trident. (Trident missiles were ultimately equipped with thermonuclear warheads and a range capacity greater than 6,000 miles). They were first deployed in 1979.

    The UGM-73 Poseidon missile was the second US Navy nuclear-armed submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) system, powered by a two-stage solid-fuel rocket. It succeeded the UGM-27 Polaris beginning in 1972, bringing major advances in warheads and accuracy. It was followed by Trident I in 1979, and Trident II in 1990.

    SILENT SERVICE TV SHOW Episode "THE TROUT AT RAINBOW'S END" USS TROUT 1957 82904
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Oct 2, 2016
    “The Trout at Rainbow’s End” is a 1957 black-and-white episode of the docudrama “Silent Service” — about the U.S. Navy's submarine fleet. All stories were based on fact and the realism was heightened by actual use of combat footage from the files of the Navy. The stories were varied between the South Pacific during World War II and the Korean War. The series was the brainchild of Rear Admiral Thomas M. Dykers, who retired from the Navy in 1949 after 22 years service.

    Dykers introduces this episode — about a mission during World War II by the submarine USS Trout (SS-202) — involving transporting a large amount of gold and silver. Mark 01:10 takes the viewer to Pearl Harbor in 1942 and onboard the Trout as the crew prepares for a special mission, including loading anti-aircraft ammunition. The historic footage is interspersed with fictionalized scenes featuring actors Robert Karnes, Dennis McCarthy, and Joseph Sargent.

    With Hollywood flare, the episode explains (starting at mark 04:45) how in January 1942 the USS Trout departed on its mission to deliver ammunition to the besieged American forces on Corregidor, maneuvering through a mine field in the process as the explosives scrape across the sub’s hull at mark 08:38. On Corregidor, the sailors work to devise a plan to compensate for the weight lost after unloading the ammunition. After failing to secure sandbags, the Hollywood crew of the Trout is shown at mark 13:35 settling on 20 tons of gold bars and silver pesos from the Philippine currency reserve, which safely helps the sub return to Pearl Harbor. (Not before encountering an enemy freighter at mark 18:00 and taking it out with a torpedo). With all of the currency accounted for at mark 20:48 — sans a single gold bar mistakenly left behind — the episode draws to a close with an interview with the Trout’s former commanding officer, Rear Admiral Frank Wesley “Mike” Fenno.

    We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment! See something interesting? Tell people what it is and what they can see by writing something for example: "01:00:12:00 -- President Roosevelt is seen meeting with Winston Churchill at the Quebec Conference."

    SUBMARINE SOUND AND VIBRATION MEASUREMENT U.S. NAVY FILM 27144
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Oct 7, 2016
    This 1968 U.S. Navy film SUBMARINE SOUND AND VIBRATION MEASUREMENT shows the techniques used to conduct airborne and structureborne noise surveys, in hopes of producing quieter and stealthier submarines. The film begins with an overview of the noise problem, with subs giving away their position to the enemy, and causing various crew problems including deafness.

    As the narrator describes:
    Noise is a potential hazard by which a submarine might give away its location to the enemy, it shows malfunction for some years now, and its also an incoherent sound that could cause deafness as seen at mark 1:28. the navy has been developing equipments to combat noise as seen At mark 2:00 . The different kinds of noise measurement surveys are seen at mark 2:18; the airborne noise with two sub categories. At mark 2:58 is the structure-borne noise. At mark 3:20 is the total airborne noise survey. Before the survey is carried out, you must check your instruments. At mark 3:48, there are 2 equipments seen; sound level meter and an active bar analyzer. These two are combined and both has its functions as seen at mark 4:00. The survey is started at mark 4:25. The internal calibration is check. The next procedure is for the accuracy on the meter readings. The equipments needed for this are seen at mark 5:20. The calibrator is connected to the oscillator and also adjusted as seen at mark 6:20. At mark 7:00, the sound level meter is now ready. Next is the analyzer as seen at mark 7:05. With all the settings, the analyzer should now give the same readings as the sound level with the pointer at 0. That completes the calibration at mark 7:35.

    The internal noise of each instrument is then checked at mark 7:40. Now the airborne survey is ready. At mark 8:10, readings are taken at compartments. At mark 8:35, an ambient reading is taken; a measure of the background noise. At mark 9:00, the background noises are modified by the analyzer. At mark 9:40, same reading is taken again with the machines in operation. At mark 10:10 is the ventilation system noise survey. For this, same gears can be used but this time, the ventilation noise is for the air conditioning system.

    The structure borne noise survey is carried out next as seen at mark 11:00. The instruments used are also seen such as the accelerometer at mark 11:45. The accelerometer is attached to a side of the disc. At mark 12:03, the calibrator is turned on and all adjustment are made. At mark 12:40 is the calibration excitor which can produce calibration at any frequency. It requires some auxiliary equipment. At mark 13:05, the accelerometer s attached to a washing system. The background reading and new readings are taken. 3 readings are taken on each machine, acceleration, velocity and displacement as seen at mark 14:00. Broadband structure borne noise survey checks if any machine has become excessively noisy as seen at mark 14:12.1/3octave surveys do the same thing in a more thorough way. At mark 14:28 is the octave survey which requires more equipment. At mark 14:45, the functions of each equipments are discussed starting with the accelerometer. At mark 15:30, the narrowband data is written out inform of a graph on a paper sheet by the graphic level recorder. The system is prepared for use at mark 15:40 with all connections appropriately set. The analyzer is calibrated to match the reading of the sound level meter at mark 17:00. But it does not show, hence you must note the dB. At mark 18:12 is the diehard drive unit, a new system. At mark 18:48, you take the octave data. At mark 19:00, a graph of the broadband noise is obtained. The analyzer is also set at mark 19:35. This is what happens in the case of an off scale reading at mark 20:30. Turn till you get an on scale reading. You must remember to write down every change in attenuation machine.

    In this film, the equipments, methods for measurements and analysis for these surveys has been seen. Before you begin, consult handbooks as they are as always your best guides.

    U.S. Navy's Newest Nuclear #Submarines - The Future of Undersea Warfare
    Documentary Libs



    Published on Sep 27, 2016
    The Future of Undersea Warfare, The Virginia class, also known as the SSN-774 class, is a class of nuclear-powered fast attack #submarines (hull classification symbol SSN) in service with the United States Navy. The submarines are designed for a broad spectrum of open-ocean and littoral (shallow coastal water) missions. They were conceived as a less expensive alternative to the Seawolf-class attack submarines, designed during the Cold War era. They are replacing older Los Angeles-class submarines, many of which have already been decommissioned. Virginia-class submarines will be acquired through 2043, and are expected to remain in service past 2060. Based on recent updates to the designs, some of the Virginia-class submarines are expected to still be in service in 2070.

    Public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
    The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

    USS Triton (SSRN/SSN-586), a United States Navy radar picket nuclear submarine, was the first vessel to execute a submerged circumnavigation of the Earth (Operation Sandblast), doing so in early 1960. Triton accomplished this objective during her shakedown cruise while under the command of Captain Edward L. "Ned" Beach, Jr. The only member of her class, she also had the distinction of being the only Western submarine powered by two nuclear reactors.

    Triton was the second submarine and the fifth ship of the United States Navy to be named for the Greek god Triton. At the time of her commissioning in 1959, Triton was the largest, most powerful, and most expensive submarine ever built, at $109 million excluding the cost of nuclear fuel and reactors ($886 million in present-day terms).

    After operating for only two years in her designed role, Triton's mission as a radar picket submarine was made obsolete by the introduction of the carrier-based Grumman WF-2 Tracer airborne early warning aircraft. Converted to an attack submarine in 1962, she became the flagship for the Commander, Submarine Forces, U.S. Atlantic Fleet (COMSUBLANT) in 1964. She was decommissioned in 1969, the first U.S. nuclear submarine to be taken out of service.

    Triton's hull was moored at the St. Julien's Creek Annex of Norfolk Naval Shipyard in Portsmouth, Virginia as part of the reserve fleet until 1993, though she was struck from the Naval Vessel Register in 1986. In 1993, she was towed to Puget Sound Naval Shipyard to await the Nuclear Powered Ship and Submarine Recycling Program. The former Triton landed on the keel resting blocks in the drydock basin on 1 October 2007 to begin this recycling process which was completed effective 30 November 2009...

    USS Jallao (SS-368), a Balao-class submarine, was a ship of the United States Navy named for the jallao, a pearl-white haemulonid food fish of the Gulf of Mexico.

    Jallao (SS-368) was launched by Manitowoc Shipbuilding Co., Manitowoc, Wisconsin, 12 March 1944; sponsored by Mrs. Oliver G. Kirk; and commissioned 8 July 1944, Lieutenant Commander Joseph B. Icenhower in command.

    After spending most of July in training operations, Jallao departed Manitowoc 26 July for Chicago, where she was loaded into a floating dry dock for the long trip down the Mississippi to New Orleans. She subsequently departed New Orleans 6 August 1944, and steamed through the Panama Canal to the Pacific and arrived Pearl Harbor 22 September 1944...

    That was something. Sadly, the way my mind works, being an insurance professional and an economist, is "my lord, the amount of money those things cost, and now they sit there, rotting away, for hundreds of years...."

    HMS ARTEMIS S-49 / P449 VOYAGE NORTH ROYAL NAVY TRAINING EXERCISE 48334
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Nov 8, 2016
    “Voyage North” is a color film that focuses on operations on the HMS Artemis (S49), an Amphion class submarine built in 1946 during a voyage. The official British government film, produced circa 1970, is an impressionistic account of life on the submarine told partly through the eyes of Lt. Ellison, a new submarine officer. After seeing the sub while pulling into a dock in Copenhagen, Denmark, we move inside at mark 02:24 for a training exercise on escape routes in the event of an emergency. As the film moves along we see classroom instruction and additional onboard training, with Ellison coming aboard at mark 06:30. Setting course for a survey mission north of Iceland, Ellison is shown standing watch at mark 08:30 as the crew topside critique their new shipmate at mark 09:53. A series of scenes from the sub follow as the camera captures day-to-day operations before the vessel approaches an ice flow at mark 13:50 and the disembark for an award ceremony, a group photo, and winter sports including snowball fights, sledding, and ice fishing. Artemis leaves the frozen north starting at mark 16:16 and we return to more routine scenes before the vessel returns to Copenhagen.

    HMS Artemis (P449) was an Amphion-class submarine of the Royal Navy, built by Scotts Shipbuilding & Engineering Co. of Greenock and launched 28 August 1946. On 1 July 1971 Artemis sank in 9 metres (30 ft) of water while moored at the shore establishment HMS Dolphin at Gosport during refueling. Because the crew had negligently run cables through the hatches which were left open, the submarine began to fill with water and subsequently sank at her moorings. Three men were trapped inside but rescued. She was raised on 6 July and decommissioned, sold to be broken up for scrap on 12 December 1971.

    Russia’s Secret Super Submarine Fleet With Cruise Missiles To Syria. "Moscow".

    Russia’s Secret Super Submarine Fleet With Cruise Missiles To Syria. "Moscow".

    Three submarines equipped with cruise missiles have reportedly joined a Russian naval deployment heading to Syria. Intelligence sources warned Russian and Syrian government forces are poised to launch a new onslaught on Aleppo.

    With US attention focused on the presidential election, Moscow has strengthened its Mediterranean fleet in recent weeks, deploying eight warships and its only aircraft carrier to the Syrian port of Latakia.

    They will be joined by two Akula-class submarines and a diesel-powered Kilo-class sub, a Royal Navy source told the Sunday Times. They are believed to be equipped with Kalibr missiles, Moscow's version of the 1,000 mile range Tomahawk cruise missile, that could be used against targets throughout Syria.

    Russian warplanes have heavily bombed areas in eastern Aleppo held by rebel groups in recent months, causing more than 2,700 causalities and making tens of thousands flee the city. The US and UK are among the countries which have called for war crimes investigations into allegations Russia has deliberately bombed civilians at targets including hospitals and schools.

    Up to 275,000 men, women and children still live in besieged eastern Aleppo.

    "We think that the Russians are on the brink of a major military assault on Aleppo," an intelligence source told The Times on Monday. "There could be significant humanitarian consequences."

    The Russian vessels include the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, are expected to arrive off the coast of Syria sometime between Wednesday and Friday. They have reportedly been joined in the Mediterranean by the submarines, which were deployed from ports around Murmansk.

    Russia has halted airstrikes in Aleppo for the past 12 days, but according to the intelligence analysis is preparing to launch a campaign which would wipe out all opposition, or lead civilians to force the rebels out.

    What Is Life Like Aboard A Ballistic Missile Submarine?

    November 23, 2016 by Editorial


    [​IMG]
    Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph F. Dunford receives a demonstration of the submarine training from students of the Trident Training Facility at Naval Submarine Base, Kings Bay, Georgia, photo by D. Myles Cullen

    By Jim Garamone (DoD News) Impressive is the only word I can come up with to describe my impressions of the Naval Submarine Base at Kings Bay, Georgia.

    I accompanied Marine Corps Gen. Joe Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as he visited sailors and toured the facilities at the base on the Georgia-Florida border.

    I have to admit that I haven’t really spent a lot of time with submariners, even though my brother, Paul, served aboard a Polaris missile submarine in the 1960s. Before the visit, my impressions were formed by too many World War II submarine movies and Hunt for Red October.

    Reality was far better than anything Hollywood could dream up.

    Dunford went to Kings Bay to study one leg of the U.S. nuclear triad. The triad consists of intercontinental ballistic missiles, manned bombers and submarine-launched ballistic missiles. The nuclear triad has been at the heart of U.S. deterrence since World War II. The Trident missile armed ballistic missile submarines are “deterrence afloat,” one sailor said.

    I can see that.

    Each Ohio-class submarine carries 24 missiles. Each missile has multiple independent reentry vehicles — meaning they are tipped with thermonuclear warheads. Each warhead could vaporize a city.

    Maintaining this deterrent is an awesome responsibility, and must be done perfectly. You don’t take shortcuts in working with thermonuclear weapons, and the sailors at the base never take them lightly.

    During his visit, Dunford toured the USS Alaska – an Ohio-class submarine launched in 1986. The “boat” — yes, that’s what the Navy calls a submarine — is 560-feet long, 42-feet wide and has a draft of 38 feet. Most of it is under the surface.

    The boat itself is under cover inside “the barn” — a huge structure with cranes and offices and machine shops built over the submarine’s docking space.

    I won’t even describe the process it takes to go through security to get to the sub. It is enough to say that it was the first time in more than 40 years of covering the Defense Department that I felt someone would really shoot me if I pulled out an iPhone. There was no messing with the Navy security personnel.

    You go down a spiral staircase to enter the boat. Once inside, it is like you have entered a machine shop. Pipes, electric lines, gauges, hatches and all sorts of unknown machines are crammed into the hull. The only familiar thing I saw when I entered the boat was a treadmill. “We try to stay in shape when we are on patrol,” our guide told me. The treadmill was sort of tucked away amid some unidentifiable machines. I have no idea how you would actually use the running machine underway.

    Walking down the passageways is an experience. I’m sure the sailors have no problems negotiating these things, but as a fat, old guy, I had trouble. If someone was coming my way, I just plastered myself up against the side of the hall and held my breath. I asked where the 155-man crew lived and our guide said “around the machinery.”

    He pulled back a curtain to show us a closet-sized room. There were nine bunks in the space. Each sailor had a small space under the bunk to store gear, and there was a small set of cabinets where I suppose you could put one shoe.

    The galley feeds 155 sailors and is pretty good, said the guide, but there isn’t enough room to swing a cat.

    They showed us the torpedo room, we went up and down ladders to get to the various decks and they gave us enough of a tour for me to realize just how tough the life aboard one of these boats. We didn’t see the control room or the reactor for security reasons, although Dunford did watch as the crew went through a classified drill in preparation for their next patrol.

    And that patrol can last for three months. “We make our own oxygen, we distill our own water, we have a nuclear reactor that generates power and moves the boat,” said a senior chief. “The only limiting factor is food for the crew.”

    The longest patrol the senior chief had been on was 87 days “sun to sun.” A master chief said his longest patrol was 109 days. I would imagine you’d get to know your fellow sailors pretty well on this kind of a schedule. And you better get along with them.

    The USS Alaska bills itself as “Kodiak Strong” and these young sailors look it. They are bright, adaptable and tough. They shoulder an enormous mission for the United States, and they have to be perfect in that mission.

    The sailors doing this mission are impressive, if out of sight. The submarine service is also called the Silent Service. It is that line of defense no enemy would want to cross. “I hope we don’t ever need them, but if we do, these guys are ready,” Dunford told the press traveling with him.

    The Most Powerful Nuclear Submarines 2016-2017.

    The Most Powerful Nuclear Submarines 2016-2017.

    Next to the aircraft carrier, the submarine remains a powerfully effective war time instrument capable of attacking naval assets and land-based targets from far-off locations.

    The modern attack submarine is capable of unleashing an accurate barrage of conventional or nuclear missiles against land-based and ocean-going surface targets while also having the facilities to counter enemy submarines of similar design. Additionally, submarines can be used to assist special forces in clandestine operations. Many modern world navies utilize the submarine primarily as a deterrent element in territorial waters with most forces keeping a standard fleet of about five or more boats.

    U.S. NAVAL RESEARCH PROJECT ALVIN SUBMERSIBLE DSV-2 WOODS HOLE INSTITUTE 50654
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Dec 28, 2016
    This rare film shows the design and construction of the Alvin submersible DSV-2, made in conjunction with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. A groundbreaking craft, Alvin was designed as a replacement for bathyscaphes and other less maneuverable oceanographic vehicles. Its more nimble design was made possible in part by the development of syntactic foam, which is buoyant and yet strong enough to serve as a structural material at great depths.

    The vessel weighs 17 tons. It allows for two scientists and one pilot to dive for up to nine hours at 4,500 metres (14,800 ft). The submersible features two robotic arms and can be fitted with mission-specific sampling and experimental gear. The plug hatch of the vessel is 0.48 metres (1 ft 7 in) in diameter and somewhat thicker than the 2-inch (51 mm) thick titanium sphere pressure hull; it is held in place by the pressure of the water above it.

    In an emergency, if Alvin were stuck underwater with occupants inside, the outer body, or cladding, of the submersible could be released and discarded using controls inside the hull. The titanium sphere would then rise to the surface uncontrolled.

    Alvin, first of its ship class of deep submergence vehicle (DSV), was built to dive to 2,440 metres (8,010 ft). Each of the Alvin-class DSVs have different depth capabilities. However Alvin is the only one seconded to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), with the others staying with the United States Navy.

    Alvin's first deep sea tests took place off Andros Island, the Bahamas, where it made a successful 12-hour, unmanned tethered 7,500-foot (2,300 m) test dive. On 20 July 1965 Alvin made its first 6,000-foot (1,800 m) manned dive for the Navy to obtain certification. On 17 March 1966, Alvin was used to locate a submerged 1.45-megaton hydrogen bomb lost in a United States Air Force midair accident over Palomares, Spain. The bomb, found resting nearly 910 metres (2,990 ft) deep, was raised intact on 7 April.

    Alvin (DSV-2) is a manned deep-ocean research submersible owned by the United States Navy and operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. The vehicle was built by General Mills' Electronics Group in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Named to honor the prime mover and creative inspiration for the vehicle, Allyn Vine, Alvin was commissioned on 5 June 1964. The submersible is launched from the deep submergence support vessel RV Atlantis (AGOR-25), which is also owned by the U.S. Navy and operated by WHOI. The submersible has made more than 4,400 dives, carrying two scientists and a pilot, to observe the lifeforms that must cope with super-pressures and move about in total darkness, as well as exploring the wreck of Titanic. Research conducted by Alvin has been featured in nearly 2,000 scientific papers.

    BATHYSCAPHE TRIESTE SIMULATED DIVE CHALLENGER DEEP DIVE 50644
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Dec 28, 2016
    Made for display in a science museum, this looped 16mm film shows a simulated descent in the bathyscaphe Trieste, including footage of its famed dive into the Challenger Deep. While the visuals are not that interesting, the end of the film shows a rare sight -- a point-of-view shot of the Trieste dumping some of the thousands of pounds of steel "drop shot" ballast as it rises to the surface.

    Trieste was a Swiss-designed, Italian-built deep-diving research bathyscaphe, which with its crew of two reached a record maximum depth of about 10,911 metres (35,797 ft), in the deepest known part of the Earth's oceans, the Challenger Deep, in the Mariana Trench near Guam in the Pacific. On 23 January 1960, Jacques Piccard (son of the boat's designer Auguste Piccard) and US Navy Lieutenant Don Walsh achieved the goal of Project Nekton.

    Trieste was the first manned vessel to have reached the bottom of the Challenger Deep.

    No small amount of technology is involved ++++ They could probably park it on a pin as they only have one medium to operate in, a ship/boat is an interface vehicle sitting between two mediums, air and water, as such the handling of any surface operating boat (they call subs boats!) is actually harder. You have wind, wave and current to deal with... under the water there is only current.
