U-853 SAS Image
Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) imagery of the German U-853, collected as part of partnership technology demonstration between the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research and Kraken Robotics, showing that the submarine is largely intact. U-853 was a type IXC/40 German submarine launched on March 11, 1943, and patrolled off the U.S. Atlantic coast during World War II. U-853 sunk the Black Point on May 5, 1945, after Germany had issued orders to cease attacks; she was subsequently sunk in retaliation.
