|USS Jimmy Carter, SSN-23 at the Commissioning Ceremony by Tom Dougherty|
A slightly different view of the NR-1. It was fitting that the NR-1, which itself participated in many “Special Operations” over the years, was docked near the USS Jimmy Carter. The NR-1 is equipped with thrusters to allow precise movements under water. It is believed that the NR-1 was involved in deploying elements of the SOSUS hydrophone network used to track Soviet submarine during the Cold War.
