Field Trip to Naval History and Heritage Command's Underwater Archaeology Branch

OceanGate was thrilled to visit the Naval History & Heritage Command's Underwater Archaeology Branch last Friday. OGI's Chief Marketing Officer Colleen Hahn and Chiara Parlagreco from the marketing department are shown below with members of the NHHC Underwater Archaeology Branch and the Howell Torpedo, one of the U.S. Navy’s earliest self-propelled torpedoes developed by Capt. John Howell from 1870 to 1888. In March of last year, Navy Dolphins discovered the mid and tail sections of the torpedo off the coast of Southern California.

The Howell Torpedo, No. 24, is one of only three Howell Torpedoes known to exist today.

Scientists from the NHHC Underwater Archeology Branch have joined Paul Mardikian and Claudia Chemello, conservationists from Terra Mare Conservation, to study the the artifact and ensure that it is preserved for future generations.
