Greeneville84k The Los Angeles class attack submarine Greeneville (SSN-772) made a stop in Guam to inspect for possible damage the submarine may have received while attempting to enter the port of Saipan on Monday, 27 August 2001. During the transit into Saipan, the Commanding Officer, CDR David S. Bogdan, made the decision that sea conditions were extremely rough and unsafe for entering port. As Greeneville was reversing course, it received a "red sounding" from the fathometer indicating a shallow depth under the hull. Although no apparent damage was noted, the Commanding Officer elected to transit to Guam to conduct a visual inspection. Divers assigned to Submarine Tender Frank Cable (AS-40) reported minor damage to the rudder and the outboard motor fairing. Repairs are not expected to impact Greeneville's current deployment schedule. An investigation by Submarine Group Seven in Yokusuka, Japan is underway to determine what caused the minor damage to Greeneville. Greeneville is on a scheduled deployment to the Western Pacific and was making a routine port visit to Saipan. USN photo courtesy of news.navy.mil., submitted by Bill Gonyo.

Greeneville271k The Los Angeles-class submarine Greeneville (SSN-772), recently completed sea testing for the Advanced SEAL Delivery System (ASDS) off the coast of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, 1 July 2003. ASDS is an 65 foot mini-submarine, which rides attached to the top of a much larger Los Angeles-class submarine. It has increased range, speed, and capacity over the current SEAL Delivery Vehicle which is an open, wet submersible, that transports SEALs in scuba gear, exposing them longer to the elements. The ASDS mini-submarine is operated by a crew of two and can carry eight SEAL team members. The vessel is connected to the host ship via a watertight hatch, and has a sophisticated sonar and a hyperbaric recompression chamber. USN photo # N-0000X-005, courtesy of news.navy.mil.
