Atlantic Dry Dock Corporation, Ft. George Island, Fla., marine repair facility, recently completed a highly specialized conversion of the research vessel Athena. The Athena, a high-speed R & D ship operated by the David W. Taylor Ship Research & Development Center, was specially equipped for a federally funded wake survey conducted by a group of professors from the University of Michigan.
The work accomplished by Atlantic Dry Dock Corporation involved the installation of research gear on the underwater hull, modification of the turbine reduction gear, and modification of the controllable-pitch propellers for the wake survey. Upon completion of the tests, the ship was returned to its original configuration. Routine drydock procedures—cleaning and bottom-painting— were also performed.
The Athena is a unique vessel combining twin diesels for normal cruising, with a 14,000-shp gas turbine engine that is utilized for high-towing loads and speeds up to 40 knots. The high-speed capability facilitates research on towline, acoustic masking and sonar sensors, as well as the wake survey.
She has accommodations for 15 engineers and technicians, and can accommodate up to 10 tons of deck equipment.
