U.S Navy Supervisor of Salvage and Diving Director of Ocean Engineering Missions and Capabilities
US Navy Captain
摘要：<正>Four days after the commencement of World War Ⅱ, the United States Navy established the office of the Supervisor of Salvage to engage and direct salvage operations with commercial salvage companies along the Atlantic, Gulf, and Pacific coastlines of the United States. Throughout the course of the war, and especially immediately after the war, the missions and capabilities of the U. S. Navy Supervisor of Salvage grew to include a broad range of operational and technical responsibilities, and the name of the office was changed to reflect the broader operational and technical scope: U. S. Navy Supervisor of Salvage and Diving, and Director of Ocean Engineering （also known as SUPSALV）. SUPSALV directly reports to the Commander of the Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington, DC. The formal SUPSALV mission is to provide technical, operational, and emergency support to the United States Navy, Department of Defense, and other federal agencies in the ocean engineering disciplines of marine salvage, afloat heavy-lift, pollution abatement, diving, diving system certification, and underwater ship husbandry. The mission objective is to prevent, respond to, and minimize the effects of catastrophes and other national emergencies.
