TESTING THE LOCKHEED DISDRUM ROUGH WATER OIL RECOVERY SYSTEM

Discusses the qualification testing of the lockheed prototype High Seas Oil Recovery System. These tests were: an inland pool test using oil; a high seas test in an operational environment (Sea State 4); a high seas test in a survival environment (Sea State 6). The tests proved the system capable of being transported in an HC-130B Coast Guard aircraft, buoy tender and by truck over the road. The system (one unit) also proved to be capable of recovering oil up to the rate of 1000 gpm under certain conditions of current, oil thickness and viscosity. The system proved that it will be capable of surviving a severe sea state condition after certain minor redesign.
