Conducting Research on U.S. Navy Ship and Aircraft Wrecks: The Sunken Military Craft Act and 32 CFR 767
Author(s): Alexis Catsambis
The U.S. Navy has recently sought to advance the management of its sunken military craft though internal planning initiatives, as well as the promulgation of revised federal regulations that establish a new permitting program for researchers wishing to investigate ship and aicraft wrecks under the jurisdiction of the Department of the Navy.
Following multiple coordination phases within the Department, among federal agencies, and with members of the public, the revised regulations are now in the process of taking effect. This presentation will provide an overview of the Sunken Military Craft Act and seek to address management challenges, the regulatory process, the new permitting scheme, associated outreach inititiaves, as well as answer common questions about conducting research on U.S. Navy sunken military craft.
