How the threat to the United States and the free world from nuclear missiles, carried on Soviet submarines, was countered and defeated by the United States Navy and a small group of people in the Long Range Acoustic Propagation Project (LRAPP).

The Soviet submarine force threatened the United States from the early 1960s 

until the end of the Cold War. The destruction of the Soviet missile submarines 

was the responsibility of the United States Navy; it remained their number one 

priority throughout the Cold War. 

The apparently insoluble problem of destroying the Soviet submarines was 

actually solved by an unknown program called the Long Range Acoustic 

Propagation Project (LRAPP). The efforts of LRAPP made the oceans transparent; 

the Soviet submarine force could essentially be destroyed, on command, starting 

in the late 1970s. The total cost for this unheralded and virtually unknown 

organization was less than $250M over a 25 year period. 

The solution to the antisubmarine warfare problem was 

a major part of the success of the West in winning 

the Cold War.

Professional Reviews

Transparent Oceans: Review I
The Cold War was essentially a battle of technologies and of mind-games on how best to use scientific breakthroughs. One of the most dangerous threats to the United States was the missile-carrying, nuclear-powered Soviet submarines that roamed freely in the oceans of the world. This book is a first-time revelation of the details of how that threat was defeated by forcing the oceans to become “transparent,” thus making previously shrouded submarines easily detectable. Written in a largely non-technical style that makes understandable the myriad technical details of critical scientific and operational thrusts that defeated the treacherous Soviet submarine threat and greatly assisted in achieving victory in the Cold War. This is a good read for science and Navy enthusiasts.

Transparent Oceans: Review II
 "The course of History is changed when dedicated people with a common vision work hard to achieve it. Transparent Oceans is the story of such a vision and how it allowed a major breakthrough in the development of ASW equipment and US Navy ASW tactics."  
Robert Adler, Captain, USN (Ret)  ASW Specialist
