Project Recover: How blue tech helps locate and recover fallen U.S. service members lost at sea | American Blue Economy Podcast
The team and tech that brings the lost at sea home.
In the April episode of the American Blue Economy Podcast, host Rear Admiral (ret) Tim Gallaudet adds one more story about the American Blue Economy connecting to our military. Building on last month's show where he explored some of the ways that ocean industries support the military, as well as how Navy installations and employees contribute to coastal economies, Rear Admiral Gallaudet introduces us to Project Recover, a nonprofit that is using blue tech to find, recover, and repatriate the remains of fallen U.S. service members that have been missing in action. Joining our host are Dr. Patrick Scannon, Director and President Emeritus of Project Recover, and Dr. Derek Abbey, CEO and President. Our guests discuss the recently released short film To What Remains that profiles several Project Recover missions. From archival research, undersea search with scuba and autonomous underwater vehicles, to the return of remains to the family members and communities of the fallen, To What Remains beautifully illustrates how Project Recover uses the same blue tech that supports the American Blue Economy to uphold one of our nation’s highest values - leave no one behind.
