PACIFIC OCEAN (Nov. 17, 2009)
The Seawolf-class attack submarine USS Connecticut (SSN 22) is underway in the Pacific Ocean.

USS Connecticut (SSN 22) is one of the relatively new SEAWOLF class submarines. From its homeport in Bangor, Washington, CONNECTICUT had to transit the shallow waters of the Bering and Chukchi Seas to reach the camp.

The ocean in this area is so shallow that any submarine making a springtime transit is forced to operate in and around the ice keels extending down from the surface. This can only be completed successfully if the submarine has a good Ice Keel Avoidance (IKA) sonar. CONNECTICUT is equipped with the latest IKA called “Orca” and testing Orca is another high priority for this ICEX.

Near the North Pole (Apr. 27, 2003) 
During Exercise ICEX 2003, the Seawolf-class attack submarine USS Connecticut (SSN 22) surfaced and broke through the ice. 

This polar bear, attracted by the hole which can be used to find food, was seen through the sub's periscope and these photos were captured as the image was projected on a flat-panel display. 

After investigating the Connecticut for approximately 40 minutes, the bear left the area, with no damage to the sub or to the bear.
