Re: Cold War Museum Presentation of SOSUS

Pat has facebook interface with his wife Ellen. Pat's out today but i'll have her contact Ellen to direct Gordon's attention to the web site. I'm quite sure you will hear from him.

TX for the reply.

Re: Cold War Museum Presentation of SOSUS

To clarify my TOPSY comment.

I my presentation I used the term “Tracks On Patrolling Soviet Yankees” as was provided to me a few days before the presentation.

Dick said it was actually “Track Of Patrolling Submarine Yankee”.

Sounds similar but is technically different.

And this ladies and gentlemen is why we depend so much on Warrant Officer Rentner to proof read and edit our annual Cable Newsletters.

Re: Cold War Museum Presentation of SOSUS

I still remember the day one popped up, very unexpectedly. Among the calls I took that day at COSL was from the JCS, during which he told me we better be right. It was a sphincter moment but we prevailed. One of the more stressful days I can ever recall...

Re: Cold War Museum Presentation of SOSUS

Correction: Make that "In my presentation….." Just one more reason we depend on Dick's editing skill.

Re: Cold War Museum Presentation of SOSUS

I'm not familiar with the TOPSY acronym, probably after my time at East Coast NAVFACs. The Pacific had a (different) acronym as well that I no longer remember. However, while searching for a clue that would remind me I stumbled upon this interesting web site. (See link).
