Diver Operations

Engineering and Diving Support Unit (EDSU)

  • The EDSU is comprised of civilian engineers, scientists and technicians from across NUWC’s product lines who are qualified U.S. Navy divers (SCUBA, Mark 20, Mark 21). Their work is varied and includes towed array support, swimmer defense, in-water inspections and measurements, the development of special tools, UUV T&E support, surface/water launch UAS support and more. The divers bring vast experience working with waterborne technologies and the ability to solve problems and develop real-time engineering solutions.

Contract Diving Support

  • Additional diving support is provided by contract divers who offer on-call services including underwater vehicle recovery, video surveys and searches, cable jetting, welding and cutting, and inspection of boats, piers and obstructions
