In 1900, John P. Holland sold his internal combustion, gasoline-powered submarine to the Navy, the official birth date of the U.S. Submarine Force. By 1987, the U.S. Navy had 139 submarines including one that dove to the deepest spot on earth in 1967 along with many multi-mission warships that made over 3,000 deterrent patrols in hostile waters during the Cold War.In considering the contribution submarines have made over the past century, Captain Edward L.

This inspiring exploration of the scientific and technological progress that led to todays $2 billion submarines culminates in a chapter that posits the future of submarines, such payload modules designed to enhance all missions — Strike, Sea Control, Special Operations Force operations, as well as intelligence, reconnaissance, surveillance, and tracking.
