Photograph of Deer Enclosures at Cochran Lake

Original caption: Cochran Lake, Deer Enclosures. Historic Photographs

Two of the most promising mine countermeasures (MSM) systems in the U. S. Navy's inventory are the Remote Minehunting Operational Prototype (RMOP) and the Marine Mammal (dolphin) System. The EMOP was developed at Coastal systems Station of Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division. The MMS dolphins are normally housed in open-water enclosures and work untethered in the open ocean. Although free to swim away and join wild dolphins, these Navy mine hunters choose to stay and work with their handlers and have proved extremely reliable since first introduction to the Navy in the early 1970s. Exact Date Shot Unknown

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- On Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, technicians remove a few items from space shuttle Discovery's middeck payload, including food, prior to a tanking test planned for no earlier than Dec. 15. During the test, engineers will monitor what happens to the external fuel tank's newly replaced ground umbilical carrier plate (GUCP) and the intertank's stringers, which are 21-foot long, U-shaped aluminum brackets located on the intertank, during loading of cryogenic propellants. Technicians already installed environmental enclosures on the tank, removed foam and prepared the tank's skin for approximately 89 strain gauges and thermocouples.       Discovery's first launch attempt for STS-133 was scrubbed in early November due to a hydrogen gas leak at GUCP. The next launch opportunity is no earlier than Feb. 3, 2011.
