January 7, 2012 Secret Sub



Quote:
It's the most covert submarine in the American arsenal. Since the sub's 2004 launch, experts have speculated that USS Jimmy Carter was designed with classified spy missions in mind. Allegedly, the sub is able to slip into enemy ports undetected and even tap into the underwater fiber-optics of foes to listen in on undersea chatter. USS Jimmy Carter may have done just that last year, when it was quietly deployed to spy on North Korea -- one of the only known missions the sub has ever taken.

What else can USS Jimmy Carter, one of the Navy's three Seawolf-class Submarines, accomplish? Nobody's quite sure, because Navy officials haven't commented on exactly what kinds of tech the seafarer is equipped with. But the Jimmy Carter does boast unprecedented hull space, to store unmanned aerial and undersea vehicles for whatever deadly missions our former president's namesake needs to embark on.

cool.



Happy Monkey  Saturday Jan 7 04:46 PM

It is "speculated" that a military submarine is used for classified spy missions?

Don't go out on a limb there, experts.

Thunderbirds are go!

You have a gold submarine, how cool is that?

Although I admit the thread title has me salivating over a turkey and cheese on Italian cheese & herb with all the salad (except tomanto and cucumber) and chilli and honey & mustard sauce.

Doing more research on this, I Googled it. What is happening in this picture I thought was interesting and I would share. It is the sub being demagnetized.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deperming

"A sea-going metal-hulled ship or submarine, by its very nature, develops a magnetic signature as it travels due to a magneto-mechanical interaction with the Earth's magnetic field. This signature can be exploited by magnetic mines, or facilitate the detection of a submarine by ships or aircraft with magnetic anomaly detection (MAD) equipment. Navies use the deperming procedure, in conjunction with degaussing, as a countermeasure against this."
