and Diving (SUPSALV) performed an aircraft search and recovery of an
EA-6B "Prowler," Aug. 17-20 near Guam.

Drone" operating from the Military Sealift Command's USNS Salvor (T-ARS
The EA-6B crashed into the Pacific Ocean in 6,500 feet of water Feb. 12
while conducting night landing qualifications.  Both engines and
assorted other components were recovered.

in determining the accident cause and possible implication on the rest
of the EA-6B inventory.
Deep Drone is the Navy's workhorse ROV designed to meet the Navy's
mid-water salvage requirements down to a maximum depth of 8,000 feet of
seawater.  The deep ocean search and recovery systems are managed by
SUPSALV and maintained and operated by underwater engineering company
Phoenix International.
SUPSALV is responsible for all aspects of ocean engineering, including
salvage, oil pollution response, in-water ship repair, contracting,
towing, diving safety, and equipment maintenance and procurement.
