Santa Barbara Experiment - Circa 1998

1998 - April
Santa Barbara Experiment
The USS DOLPHIN and the USS ACOUSTIC EXPLORER were there along with MIT.

So, without further ado, here is the weblink to the site and another one here. Caution: There are some .wav files on there that sound like *gasp* sonar!
Bathymetry. Whatarush!

Ah, they return to Duty.... this time, prepared....

December16th 2005 -

Just finding some information. This time from the MaritimeTechnology Reporter about the USS Dolphin doing what it does the best - testing. . In 2006, the shallow water acoustic torpedo testing will occur - to some, its the same stuff that they did before the accident. But to others its a new day, a new experience. In the meantime, hey, there's always a good fire drill that can be
squeezed in with all of the stuff thats going on!

Update - found another site that had the same interesting information.

Happy New Year

Its 2006.

Be safe. Drink, don't drive. Act stupid only when in public (just kidding) and don't do what this guy did.

Around San Diego County, law enforcement is out there. You don't want to be one of those guys who actually gets to go into the "drunk tank" just to stay for a couple of days until your court date. SO why drink and drive? Get a taxi, ask friends who aren't drinking, go by trolley or by train. Just don't get on the freeway, pass through a checkpoint and get caught.

Yes, this has happened tonight, er, last night believe it or not.
Just heard on the news that there was this unfortunate person, not sure if it was military, but thats what the news reported, underage too ( I believe it was 18), who got caught. He did the whole sobriety test. I believe I heard that he didn't really act drunk or look drunk - ok, whatever - but when he took the brethalizer test he didn't pass. Boy is his hiney in BIG trouble.

Will bring you more info on this later.
Go have fun now.

Happy New Year!
