    NASA personnel and Sailors assigned to USS San Diego (LPD 22) prepare to inflate a NASA life raft aboard a rigid hulled inflatable boat during maritime recovery training in San Diego Bay, Feb. 14, 2024. Sailors attached to amphibious transport dock ship USS San Diego (LPD 22), Explosive Ordnance Disposal Expeditionary Support Unit 1 and Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 23 “Wildcards” trained alongside NASA ahead of Underway Recovery Test 11. In preparation for NASA’s Artemis II crewed mission, which will send four astronauts in Orion beyond the Moon, NASA and the Department of Defense will conduct a series of tests to demonstrate and evaluate the processes, procedures and hardware used in recovery operations for crewed lunar missions. Amphibious transport docks, like USS San Diego, have unique capabilities that make it an ideal partner to support NASA, including embarking helicopters, launching and recovering small boats, three dimensional air search radar and advanced medical facilities.
