Abstract: RECENT accidents involving US Navy submarines have provided a graphic reminder of the inherent risks of submarine operations. In late December 2006, two sailors were swept to their deaths from the hull of the USS Minneapolis-St Paul in rough weather off Plymouth in the United Kingdom. About a week later, the USS Newport News, travelling submerged, hit the large Japanese tanker Mogamigawa while passing through the Straits of Hormuz. As a consequence of these accidents, the Commander of the US Naval Submarine Forces ordered a week-long “safety stand-down” of all American submarines.
