SIO Reference 63-32. The major effort which was undertaken during the one-year period of the contract was to provide requested support for two field operations whose purpose was the study of the visibility of submarines from aircraft. Neither of these operations were successful in providing the primary information which was being sought due mostly to the vagaries of the weather and the Cuban blockade. Recommendations are given for a .plan for a future operation with more carefully controlled conditions and more restricted and specific objectives.
