Program: Project Azorian – The CIA’s Covert Operation to Recover a Nuclear Armed Soviet Submarine
Bob Schutte will discuss his involvement in a CIA project to recover a nuclear armed Soviet submarine and the intrigue associated with it. This project has been designated as an ASME Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark Project requiring a design incorporating unique solutions which were beyond the state-of-the art in numerous engineering and scientific disciplines, particularly mechanical engineering. The objective of this project was to retrieve a 2,000 ton object in 17,000 feet of water without either public or Soviet military knowledge of the project taking place under their watchful eyes. Now for the “Rest of the Story” about Project Azorian and the development of the Glomar Explorer.
