USS Charlotte (SSN 766) returns from sea

COMSUBPAC Release

Release Date: 5/28/2003

PEARL HARBOR, HI--USS Charlotte (SSN 766) recently returned from sea after completing an operational evaluation for the Advanced SEAL Delivery System (ASDS) after many months of at-sea training. The ASDS is a mini combatant submersible that rides piggyback onboard a Los Angeles class submarine. The ASDS allows navy SEALs and Special Operations Forces (SOF) to be clandestinely inserted into areas of interest in a dry environment, minimizing their exposure time in a wet environment. USS Charlotte is one of only two host submarines. (Photo by JOC(SW/AW) David Rush)
