    Need records of the Naval Experimental Diving Unit for 1970

    Paul Haire Newbie

      Trying to find records of the Naval Experimental Diving Unit deep water habitat off Oahu in 1970. In the summer of 1970 the NEDU manned a deep water habitat off the coast of Oahu. The habitat was conceived, designed and constructed under contract for by a private Hawaiian company, the Makai Undersea Test Range. I know this because I was there but I've found few historic sources that confirm the historic mission took place.

       

      I'd like to research and write up the history in time for the 50th anniversary in 2020. 5 of the 6 divers are still alive but I'm looking for official records and leads to identify and locate the topside support crew.

       

      I'm brand new to this type of research but deeply committed to telling the story.
