UNLOS Research Vessel

1 recipient will receive $1,737,000. This is a continuing earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Description: Acoustical studies in the Littoral zone have been seriously hampered by interference from noise caused by shipboard machinery and propulsion equipment and radiated through the hull of the vessel. At the present there are no United States research vessels which meet the International Council for Exploration of the Seas (ICES) 209 standard (radiated noise standard for research vessels). UNOLS vessels have been extensively used by NRL and ONR funded investigators to conduct such studies. This funding was used to augment the propulsion and machinery quieting for the University of Delaware vessel presently under construction in order to provide enhanced capability for Navy investigators.
