NUCLEAR SUBMARINE KURSK SALVAGE OPERATION On August 12, 2000, a catastrophe occurred onboard nuclear submarine ‘Kursk’ (K-141) of Project “Antey” (Oscar II) during exercises of the Northern Fleet. All submarine crew was lost as a result of this accident. SSN ‘Kursk’ has sank as a result of the torpedo ammunition explosion inside the compartment and was found on 13 August to the west of cape Teriberka, in 108 miles off the Kola Bay at the depth of 115 to116 m in the point with co-ordinates 69°37'00'' N and 37°34'25'' E. From August 13 through 19 the sunken submarine was inspected during the rescue operation by manned submersible vehicles of the Northern Fleet and on August 20 - 21 by deep divers from Norwegian vessel "Seaway Eagle". More detailed survey of the submarine was continued at the end of September by means of deep-diving manned vehicles “Mir-1” and “Mir-2” from research vessel “Academik Mstislav Keldysh” and in October - November by unmanned submersible vehicles and divers of Norwegian company Halliburton AS from vessel “Regalia”. Upon instructions of the President of Russia V.V.Putin the Governmental Commission chaired by the Deputy Chairman of the Russian Government I.I.Klebanov was established for investigation of causes of the submarine ‘Kursk’ sinking.

Teacher Background Information
Historical Data:
People have long used the seas as a means of transportation, as it is often easier to move people and goods over water than land. Following is a list of ship development milestones: The earliest craft were log dugouts, rafts, and boats made of hides stretched over a wooden frame. About 6,000 years ago, the ancient Egyptians built reed boats powered by paddlers. About 5,200 years ago, they invented sails. Another breakthrough in sailing technology occurred in 3000 BC when the Egyptians learned to build vessels from wood planks. Around 500 BC the Greeks built ships with two masts. Shipbuilders in northern Europe devised the stern rudder in AD 1303. In the 1450's, shipbuilders in the Mediterranean developed the full-rigged sailing ship. The first workable submarine was constructed from a wooden rowboat covered with waterproof hides in 1620. The first commercial successful steamboat was built in 1807. In 1818, the first all-iron sailing ship was built. A propeller-driven steamship design was patented in 1836.

30 Dec 1999 The year 2000 marks the centennial of the U.S. Submarine Force. Among the most extraordinary accomplishments of American submariners is the impressive victory of U.S. World War II Fleet Boats over the Japanese Navy and Merchant Marine. While many books have been written describing this victory, few understand to what degree the U.S. Submarine Force gutted Japanese industrial and military strength during the Second World War. Such details are contained in the post war U.S. Strategic Bombing Study of Japanese industry and in Mark Parillo's excellent Japanese Merchant Marine in World War II. The U.S. Pacific Submarine campaign had three major accomplishments. First, Japanese merchant marine losses crippled the ability of Japanese industry to generate military power. Second, destruction of Japanese merchant marine and naval forces significantly reduced the Japanese ability to project power throughout the vast Pacific. Third, use of the submarine enabled the U.S. Navy to take the offensive in Japanese controlled waters and inflict disproportionate losses relative to the U.S. investment in submarines. We will review the effects of the U.S. submarine campaign on Japan including the effects on the four military pillars of Japanese power: her merchant marine, Navy, Army and air power. The implication for today's military, heavily dependent on logistics for power projection should not be forgotten. Today, even with the impressive and growing ability of the U.S. Navy to effect land warfare, sea control still remains job number one.
