SACLANT Undersea Research Centre - Research and Accomplishments 1975-1989
The SACLANT Undersea Research Centre, originally the SACLANT ASW Research Centre, was established in 1959 to provide scientific and technical advice and assistance to the Supreme Allied Commander Atlantic in the field of antisubmarine warfare and to respond to the needs of NATO nations and maritime commands. A special comprehensive report, M-93, on twenty years of research at the Centre was published in January 1980 by Donald Ross. This report is intended to be similar in kind in order to document the research and accomplishments of the Centre through 1989, the 30th anniversary of the Centre. It overlaps the stated 20-year period of M-93 in order to more smoothly lead into the work of the 1980s. The nuillerous Centre documents cited in this report - scientific memoranda and reports, conference proceedings, annual progress reports - together with external publications and corporate memory have provided the source material for this report. The author has attempted to be fully objective in selecting the references and in summarizing the work.
