Fleet Sonar School


Fleet Sonar School

The Fleet Sonar School was a United States Navy facility in Key West, Florida for the training of Service personnel in Sonar techniques and equipment, and Anti-submarine warfare. [1]

The facility opened in 1940, after personnel were transferred from the existing Atlantic Fleet Sound School in New London, Connecticut, which had opened in 1939. [1] The school was invaluable for training sonar operators for the country's struggle against German U-boats a few years later. The base closed in the early 1970s. [2]
