Robert D. Conrad AGOR-3

Robert D. Conrad

(AGOR-3: dp. 1,370 (f.); 1. 208'10"; b. 37'5"; dr. 15'2" (mean); s. 12 k.; epl. 22; seientifie staff 15)

Robert D. Conrad (AGOR-3) was laid down in January 1961 by Gibbs Shipyards, Ine., Jacksonville, Fla., Launched on 26 Mav 1962, sponsored by Mrs. Edmund B. Taylor, and completed and delivered to the Navy in November 1962.

After delivery, the single screw, diesel-electric, oceanographic research ship, Robert D. Conrad, was assigned to the Lamont Geological Observatory, Columbia University for operation. Complete with wet and dry laboratories, seientifie and chart room, photo laboratory, seientifie drafting room a machine shop, two 24" diameter tubes along the centerline for lowering instruments, and a retractable propeller in the bow to maintain position while working with equipment over the side, Robert D. Conrad continues her work for the Lamont Observatory into 1974. Much of her work has been in eooperation with the Offiee of Naval Research and, during the spring and summer of 1963, Submarine Development Group 2 as that group searched the ocean floor for traces of the submarine Thresher.

World War II service [ edit | edit source ]

In January 1942 he returned to Washington, D.C. Initially in the Bureau of Ships, he became Head of the Progress and Planning Section in the Office of the Coordinator of Research and Development, Office of the Secretary of the Navy in April and remained in that post until May 1945.

He was awarded the Legion of Merit for his work during that period. After the end of the war in Europe, Captain Conrad continued his research work through many organizational changes, and was eventually designated Director of the Planning Division, Office of Research and Inventions, later the Office of Naval Research. He was awarded the Navy Distinguished Service Medal for his work both during and after the Second World War. Ώ]

PRESERVER ARS 8

This section lists the names and designations that the ship had during its lifetime. The list is in chronological order.

    Diver Class Rescue and Salvage Ship
    Keel Laid October 26 1942 - Launched April 1 1943

Naval Covers

This section lists active links to the pages displaying covers associated with the ship. There should be a separate set of pages for each name of the ship (for example, Bushnell AG-32 / Sumner AGS-5 are different names for the same ship so there should be one set of pages for Bushnell and one set for Sumner). Covers should be presented in chronological order (or as best as can be determined).

Since a ship may have many covers, they may be split among many pages so it doesn't take forever for the pages to load. Each page link should be accompanied by a date range for covers on that page.

Postmarks

This section lists examples of the postmarks used by the ship. There should be a separate set of postmarks for each name and/or commissioning period. Within each set, the postmarks should be listed in order of their classification type. If more than one postmark has the same classification, then they should be further sorted by date of earliest known usage.

A postmark should not be included unless accompanied by a close-up image and/or an image of a cover showing that postmark. Date ranges MUST be based ONLY ON COVERS IN THE MUSEUM and are expected to change as more covers are added.
 
>>> If you have a better example for any of the postmarks, please feel free to replace the existing example.

Conrad

Just like her illustrious big sister , Lamont’s second ship, the Robert D. Conrad , a new research vessel built by the Navy and given to the Observatory to operate in 1962, embarked on ambitious, near-continuous research missions from the very start. (She would eventually follow Vema as only the second ship in history to log more than one million nautical miles of oceanographic research.)

Using deep-sea seismic reflection equipment developed at Lamont, both research vessels conducted a worldwide mapping of the sediments accumulated on the ocean floors, while at the same time collecting magnetic, gravity and heat-flow data. This vast flow of information contributed enormously to our present understanding of oceans as youthful features, originating at the mid-ocean ridges by a process of intrusion of mantle rocks, followed by lateral displacement of the cooled crust—a process known as seafloor spreading.

R/V Conrad science tracks from 1962 to 1989, totaling an estimated 1,100,000 nautical miles. (Click on image for larger view.)

In addition to its manifold oceanographic, biological, geochemical, geological and geophysical work, the Conrad was notable in that she was equipped, starting in 1974, with tools for multichannel seismic (MCS) surveying. Starting with four airguns and a 2,400-meter-long, 24-channel hydrophone array, the equipment was over time systematically upgraded and improved: by the time she was returned to the Navy, in 1989, the Conrad ’'s MCS equipment consisted of ten airguns and a 4,000-meter-long, 160-channel hydrophone array. Over her 27 years of service to the Observatory, the Robert D. Conrad acquired 850 seismic profiles over the course of 35 different surveys.


Construção Editar

O Almirante começou a ser construído em 23 de agosto de 1962 pela Marietta Manufacturing Co. de Point Pleasant, Virgínia Ocidental, com casco número 911, o primeiro de três navios desse tipo feitos para a Marinha dos Estados Unidos pelo construtor. [ 3 ] [ 4 ] [ nota 1 ] O navio foi lançado em 14 de setembro de 1963, sendo patrocinado pela Miss Priscilla G. Sands, aceito pela Marinha e colocado em serviço no então Serviço de Transporte Marítimo Militar (MSTS) em 2 de fevereiro de 1965, com o mestre e capitão George W. Fladerer no comando do navio. [ 3 ]

Marinha dos Estados Unidos Editar

Tripulado por uma equipe do Serviço Civil, o USNS Sands foi operado no Oceano Atlântico pelo Comando Militar de Transporte Marítimo (anteriormente MSTS) para o Escritório Oceanográfico Naval. [ 3 ] O navio era operado por esse escritório como um dos navios "Navy Pool", para os quais o escritório coordenava o uso pelos laboratórios, universidades e organizações de pesquisa da Marinha com contratos da mesma para diversos projetos. [ 5 ] [ nota 2 ]

Até ser colocado fora de serviço, em reserva, em abril de 1973, o Sands realizou pesquisas geofísicas oceanográficas e marinhas e conduziu experimentos em propagação de som subaquático. [ 3 ] Por exemplo, no início dos anos 70, o Sands plantou grandes arranjos acústicos verticais no subsolo no Atlântico tropical. Essas matrizes eram únicas por terem recursos de gravação de longo prazo, permitindo a coleta de dados acústicos por vários meses e para o primeiro uso do então novo material Kevlar como membro de resistência das matrizes. Verificou-se que o Kevlar, criado pela DuPont para uso como cabos em pneus para veículos, possuía características de alongamento que correspondiam às dos fios condutores de cobre embutidos em uma matriz. (Considerando que um material como o dacron pode se esticar até 50% antes da ruptura, os limites do Kevlar se estendem para 2% antes da falha. Isso reduziu muito as tensões longitudinais nos fios de cobre e permitiu o posicionamento vertical preciso dos hidrofones na corda vertical.) O Sands durante esse período, também realizou viagens de coleta de dados acústicos na área em torno de Malta e no baixo mar Adriático. [ 3 ] O Sands foi colocado fora de serviço em 1973. [ 1 ] [ 2 ]

Marinha do Brasil Editar

Em 1 de julho de 1974, o navio foi alugado pela Marinha do Brasil e renomeado para Almirante Camara, em homenagem a um grande apoiador da hidrografia brasileira, o almirante Antônio Alves Câmara Júnior, e colocado em serviço sob o comando do capitão Fernando Carlos Catta Preta Baumeir. [ 1 ] [ 6 ] Em 1990, foi assinado um contrato de compra do navio pelo Brasil no final do alugamento. [ 7 ] A compra foi efetivada no âmbito do Programa de Assistência à Segurança, em 5 de dezembro de 1990. [ 8 ]

O Almirante Camara se envolveu em pesquisas no Atlântico Sul para o Brasil, incluindo operações internacionais com navios de pesquisa e hidrografia da Marinha dos Estados Unidos, como o Hayes e o Robert D. Conrad, e em apoio ao Programa Antártico Brasileiro. [ 1 ] [ 9 ] O Almirante Camara foi descomissionado em 7 de agosto de 2003 em uma cerimônia na Base Naval, no Rio de Janeiro e, posteriormente, vendido em leilão em 2004. [ 1 ]
