dc.description.abstractThis thesis proposes a simplification of the logistic and operational problems of deep submersibles using a support craft-submersible combination. Shown is an improved vehicle launch and recovery method and a means to transfer personnel, supplies, and services during sea conditions presently detrimental to such operations. The combination is shown as capable of short range operations close to port as a complete unit, but for distant areas, the combination, which is air transportable, may require tending services of an available larger ship. A scale model of the combination was built to illustrate a method for support craft and submersible bow-to-stern mating concept. Designs for the submersible indicate how the system components can accommodate an elevator to reduce vehicle drag and to make equipment accessible for maintenance. Efficient buoyancy material is important to the idea. Small diameter porcelain spheres were made and tested to show the feasibility of sphere-syntactic foam conglomerate for buoyancy at 20,000 feet.en_US
