The Submarine Medicine Team conducts basic and applied research on biomedical aspects of submarine and diving environments. It focuses on ways to optimize the health and job performance of our undersea warfighters. Our goal is to increase mission effectiveness by reducing attrition due to conditions, both psychological and physical, which may cause a submariner to be unfit for submarine service.

The team is also the lead location for the NAVSEA-sponsored Submarine Atmosphere Health Assessment Program (SAHAP). SAHAP's mission is to perform occupational health research, development, testing and evaluation as part of the effort to develop criteria necessary for establishing exposure limits in U. S. submarines. This program uses standard industrial hygiene air sampling techniques, developed for the eight working hour per day civilian workplace, adapted for the unique environment of an operating U. S. Navy nuclear submarine which may remain submerged for many weeks.
