Now, Washington finally confirms Project Azorian, a brazen mission from the days of high stakes, high seas, Cold War rivalry. After more than 30 years, the CIA rel...

    This historic film shows techniques used to conduct deep ocean mining of the sea floor, which were pioneered in the 1960s. The potential for this type of mining (particularly of manganese nodules) was never fully realized. Ironically, the program did end up providing the cover for the USNS Hughes Glomar Explorer (T-AG-193), a deep-sea drillship platform built for the United States Central Intelligence Agency Special Activities Division secret operation Project Azorian to recover the sunken Soviet submarine K-129, lost in April 1968. Hughes Glomar Explorer (HGE), as the ship was called at the time, was built between 1973 and 1974, by Sun Shipbuilding and Drydock Co. for more than US$350 million at the direction of Howard Hughes for use by his company, Global Marine Development Inc.[4] This ...

  • M/V Hughes Glomar Explorer/Project Azorian - Burial At Sea

    This is a historical document and therefore falls under This is the first time I've been able to find video of this. The ceremony was conducted to bury the remains of 6 crewmen found in the wreckage of the G-II class Soviet ballistic missile submarine K-129 which was recovered by the M/V Hughes Glomar Explorer. This was, to publicly available knowledge at this time, the single greatest intelligence coup of the 20th Century. Items rumored to have been recovered from the wreck of the K-129: cryptographic graphic machines, cypher books of the crypto machines operations manuals; and, perhaps most importantly, two nuclear torpedoes, as well as three of the ICBMs onboard.

  • Project Azorian

    "Azorian" was the code name for a U.S. Central Intelligence Agency project to recover the sunken Soviet submarine K-129 from the Pacific Ocean floor in the summer of 1974, using the purpose-built ship Hughes Glomar Explorer. The 1968 sinking of the K-129 occurred approximately 1,560 nautical miles northwest of Hawaii. Project Azorian was one of the most complex, expensive, and secretive intelligence operations of the Cold War at a cost of about $800 million. In addition to designing the high tech recovery ship and its unique lifting cradle, the U.S. used concepts developed with Global Marine that utilized their precision stability equipment to keep the ship nearly stationary above the target. They worked with scientists to develop methods for preserving paper that had been underwater for y...

CIA released information Friday, under the freedom of information act, confirming what the world has known for years. Operation "Azorian" one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken by the CIA and US Navy during the cold war. The raising of the soviet ballistic missile submarine K-129. Video credit Michael White's documentary http://www.projectjennifer.at "Raising of the K-129". In 1974, far out in the Pacific, a U.S. Ship pretending to be a deep sea mining vessel, fished a sunken Soviet nuclear armed submarine out of the ocean depths, took what it could of the wreck and made off to Hawaii with its prize. Now, Washington finally confirms Project Azorian, a brazen mission from the days of high stakes, high seas, Cold War rivalry. After more than 30 years, the CIA released an internal account of Project Azorian this week. The account surfaced Friday at the hands of private researchers from the National Security Archive who used the Freedom of Information Act to achieve the declassification. The document is a 50 page article quietly published in the fall 1985 edition of Studies in Intelligence, the CIA's in-house journal that outsiders rarely get to see. In it, the CIA describes in chronological detail a mission, estimated to cost 1.5 billion dollars, and improbable engineering feats that culminated in August 1974 when the Hughes Glomar Explorer retrieved a portion of the submarine, K-129. The industrialist Howard Hughes lent his name to the project to give the ship cover as a commercial research vessel. The Navy buried six lost Soviet mariners at sea, after retrieving their bodies in the salvage, and sailed off heading to Hawaii. Despite the declassified article, the greatest mysteries of Project Azorian remain buried three miles down and in CIA files. Exactly what parts of the sub were retrieved and what intelligence was derived from them remains a secret. Despite the secrecy over the project, its existence has been known for decades. Much of the operation, on the scene, unfolded as Soviet vessels watched and buzzed the Glomar Explorer with helicopters. The Americans told the Soviets they were conducting deep sea mining experiments. Journalists broke the story in 1975, led by Seymour Hersh, from The New York Times, and columnist Jack Anderson. The CIA maintained its silence except for declassifying a videotape of the burial of the Soviet seamen that was turned over to Russian President Boris Yeltsin in the early 1990s. The CIA article brings back to life a time of brinkmanship between two nuclear-armed superpowers as they raced to uncover each other's military secrets. That competition ranged from space to the ocean floor. The United States Navy, the CIA and Washington spared no expense to retrieve the mammoth soviet sub loaded with nuclear arms, codes and Soviet technology. "Lifting a submarine weighing approximately 1,750 tons from a depth of 16,500 feet had never been attempted or accomplished anywhere before." - This video clip "full credit" to Michael White Films.

Hughes told the media that the ship's purpose was to extract manganese nodules from the ocean floor. This marine geology cover story became surprisingly influential, spurring many others to examine the idea. But in sworn testimony in United States district court proceedings and in appearances before government agencies, Global Marine executives and others associated with Hughes Glomar Explorer project unanimously maintained that the ship could not be used in any economically viable ocean mineral operation.

Dubbed Azorian, the project was handled by the CIA rather than the Navy, but it took six years to come to fruition, as a unique salvage vessel had to be built to raise the hulk. The project was only partially successful, as the K-129 broke up as it was raised. What was recovered remains an official secret, but six bodies, heavily irradiated, were buried at sea with military honours, and a film of the ceremony was later handed to the Russians. CIA staff tell their story in their own words for this film, which includes footage of the wreck taken during the 1974 mission, and is the first full public account of the project.

Operation "Azorian" one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken by the CIA and US Navy during the cold war. The raising of the soviet nuclear submarine K-129. Dateline, March 1968, the Soviet ballistic missile submarine K-129 carrying three top secret submarine-launched missiles, each with a one megaton thermo-nuclear warhead, sank with the tragic loss of its 98 officers and crew in the Central North Pacific. K-129's location remained unknown to the Soviets for over six years but the U.S. Air Force had located it within weeks. The intelligence of Soviet naval missile technology and a potential intelligence coup of the highest magnitude! The CIA and the US Navy immediately crafted a secret program of unparalleled imagination and engineering to recover the K-129. This clandestine effort was code named "Azorian", to obtain intelligence at the height of the Cold War, would take over six years to complete and still remains highly classified even today. Now, after more than three decades of secrecy, this incredible story can finally be told, by the men who were there that made it happen, together with original film footage of Azorian´s actual salvage attempt and new documentary evidence relating to the projects success in the raising of the K-129.
