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.
