Abstract
Early in 2008, a series of pilot near-surface experiments was done with the Albert model of the Victoria class submarine in the NRC Institute for Ocean Technology towing tank. These and other pilot tests were done to aid in planning a more extensive test program later in the year, the overall objective being to gather data on littoral manoeuverability. The near-surface results provide a look at the hydrodynamic loads imposed on the submarine operating between deep water and periscope depth in calm water. They are reviewed here in sanitized form.
