2000 Military Reports
- Report of the Panel of Experts on Sierra Leone Diamonds and Arms December 2000, S/2000/1195 -- Diamonds have become an important resource for Sierra Leone's Revolutionary United Front (RUF) in sustaining and advancing its military ambitions. Estimates of the volume of RUF diamonds vary widely, from as little as $25 million per annum to as much as $125 million. Whatever the total, it represents a major and primary source of income for the RUF, and is more than enough to sustain its military activities.

- Submarine Rescue: Ready For The Unthinkable Undersea Warfare Fall 2000 -- With the recent tragic loss of a Russian submarine, there has been an increased interest in U.S. submarine survivability and the U.S. Navy's submarine rescue capabilities. These are areas of vital importance that should be understood by every submariner. This article will describe the programs and capabilities we have currently in place and some of the ongoing initiatives that we are pursuing for our submarine survivability and rescue program.

- An Integrated Electric Power System: the NEXT STEP by ADM Frank L. "Skip" Bowman, USN Undersea Warfare Fall 2000 -- Although our modern nuclear reactors offer enough stored energy to power the ship throughout its lifetime, their mechanical drive propulsion systems immediately reserve 75-80 percent of useful reactor power output exclusively and unalterably for propulsion. If we incorporate an integrated electric power system, large amounts of reactor power output could be placed on a common electrical bus, allowing allocation of that energy as determined by tactical requirements, whether that be answering a maneuvering bell or delivering payload or a combination of the two. The ability to redistribute power on demand will give the commanding officer enormous operational flexibility.

- National Ice Center / Naval Ice Center Support to Submarine Operations by CDR Zdenka Willis, CDR Michael Foster, Ms. Cheryl Bertoia, and LT Kyle Dedrick Undersea Warfare Summer 2000 -- With our current capabilities to monitor sea ice using aircraft and imaging satellites, the data that submarines bring back from beneath the surface is a valuable adjunct for characterizing environmental conditions in the Arctic region. Thus, for tracking and analyzing sea ice - its growth, recession, and motion - there is probably no more fruitful partnership than the teaming of Navy's Arctic-going submarines and the National/Naval Ice Center in Washington, DC.
- Continuous Water Mass Sampling Using STED by Mark D. Sand Undersea Warfare Summer 2000 -- The importance of an accurately measured sound velocity profile and its contribution to effective submarine operations have been understood since the days preceding World War II. During that conflict, U.S. Navy submarine crews utilized a mechanical bathythermograph to record water temperatures as the submarine performed a depth excursion. The temperature profile was etched onto a gold-coated glass slide and then read by a microscope within an optical reader.

Now, some eighteen years after VLS and the Tomahawk weapon system appeared on submarines, VLS training has caught up. The new VLS Trainer in the Torpedoman "A" and "C" School at Groton, Connecticut brings unprecedented realism to the learning process for operations and maintenance of a complex weapon system.

Dallas recently completed all necessary sea trials and is now in the final phases of pre-deployment to become the first attack submarine to carry a dry-deck shelter (DDS).

- OH, How Offensive by RADM Richard P. Terpstra, USN Undersea Warfare Spring 2000-- The evolution of submarine land attack has been a hard-won success story. Against difficult technical problems, communications challenges, and a strike-warfare culture that does not enthusiastically embrace newcomers, the Submarine Force has persevered to make up about 25 percent of the battlegroup Tomahawk strike capability with an impressive record of reliable precision attacks. We have come a long way, but I believe the Navy is at the cusp of a revolution in the way we will fight that demands the Submarine Force take a leadership role and become a full partner in naval campaign-level striking forces. Why? The fundamental reason why we must lead in this revolution is that it can't be done without us.

- TLAM AND BRITISH STRATEGIC THOUGHT by Dr. Lee Willett Undersea Warfare Spring 2000 -- On 24 March 1999, the Royal Navy (RN) SSN HMS Splendid fired Britain's first Tomahawk Land Attack Missile (TLAM) in combat. The first NATO weapons employed in Operation ALLIED FORCE in Kosovo, Splendid's TLAMs projected maritime power ashore against broad target sets in a land-locked theater. In contributing an undisclosed number of rounds to the 238 TLAMs fired, Splendid's operation means TLAM is now combat-proven for Britain.
