DRYA Winter Seminar
Detroit Regional Yacht-racing Association

WED 2016-01-06

Arctic Submarine Expedition to the North Pole Capt. Phil Klintworth



Capt. Phil Klintworth commanded the U.S. Naval Submarine Base at San Diego. He also served on the staff of the Naval Reactors Facility in Idaho, as the fleet nuclear power representative at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, and as Professor of Naval Science and Commanding Officer of the NROTC Unit at the University of Michigan. He retired from the Navy in 1991.
Expedition to the Arctic Ocean of two U.S. Navy submarines, USS Tautog (SSN 639) and USS Aspro (SSN 648) during the fall and winter of 1982. It discusses the challenges encountered and lessons learned in operating and navigating in the difficult under-ice environment, and describes the dramatic surfacing of both submarines at the North Pole, the first time in history that two submarines had surfaced at the North Pole in winter. The presenter (Capt. Klintworth) was the Commanding Officer of Tautog and the Officer in Tactical Command of the expedition.


Across the Arctic Ocean and to Antarctica by Icebreaker Com. Mike Powers



The presenter, Commander Mike Powers, USCG (Retired), was second-in-command (Executive Officer) aboard POLAR SEA for two Arctic and one Antarctica deployments, including AOS-94. He served on four icebreakers, including being the Commanding Officer of USCGC NEAH BAY (WTGB 105), an icebreaking tug based in Cleveland, OH. Mike worked in communications, information systems, and electronics support ashore, including his final assignment as Commanding Officer of the Electronic Systems Support Unit, Seattle, On August 22, 1994, USCGC POLAR SEA (WAGB 11) became the first United States surface ship to reach the North Pole in what was the first major scientific crossing of the Arctic Ocean, the 1994 Arctic Ocean Section Expedition (or AOS-94). Following that expedition, POLAR SEA deployed to McMurdo Sound in Antarctica, reaching one of the southern-most parts of the Southern Ocean. This presentation will cover the two voyages, reviewing the science supported by the Coast Guard's most powerful icebreaker, and providing pictures of some of the scenery in the polar regions of the world.
