Submarine Archaeology

Date: 14/12/2009

The Australian government conducted a survey to examine the wreckage of a World War II Japanese submarine in Sydney Harbour using a SeaBotix LBV, looking for clues on how the submarine sank. They discovered a large rope wrapped around the aft section of the submarine as well as a dense cluster of fishing nets around the forward portion. The LBV accessed tight areas for close-ups of the conning tower, props, battery compartment, cutting tool, bulkhead and hatch.
