USE OF SEMI-SUBMERGED SHIPS TO SUPPORT NEW TECHNOLOGY AT SEA

A description is given showing how a new type of Semi-Submerged Ship, called S3, can be used to enhance the effectiveness of new technological developments at sea. History has shown that new discoveries in nearly any field lead to the need for new support systems. Similarly, in work at sea, new technological advances in geophysical equipment, oil drilling equipment, mining, fishing, transportation, oceanographic instrumentation, diving, submersibles, underwater work systems, etc. lead to the increased need for more stable ships with greater deck areas, all-weather operations, greater speed, and reduced overall costs.
