Additional mission areas include gathering long-term oceanographic and geophysical information, support of environmental assessment projects, marine mammal research and counter-narcotics efforts.

“The Serco team is proud to have been selected to support IUSS and their mission,” said Dave Dacquino, Serco Inc.'s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Serco has a 15-year history of working with the US Navy’s integrated undersea surveillance systems. We understand how critical the IUSS component is to the Navy’s anti-submarine and undersea warfare capabilities.”
