    NOAA now in treasure hunting business

    Has anyone noticed a branch of NOAA called <searchinc.com>? Basically a new branch of NOAA with $94 million dollars funding to claim to be in the CRM business. One of the principals being James Delgado who has used government funding to write no less than 33 books on shipwrecks. Some how they claim to be the only commercially operating archaeology business. Supposedly found two wrecks in the golf in deep water currently in the news.
    Does anyone know who and how they got their funding?

    Millions of dollars of Spanish treasure await those who would dare brave the eye of the hurricane.

    This business is just itching to break out.

    Centimeter GPS, Air-platformed multispectral LIDAR mapping land and sub-water contours, drone-based magnetometers, computer overlays, and more.

    Oh, all in real time.


    Imagine that capital applied to the opportunities.

    This is an old link but recently on TV they were calling for people all across the Great Lakes to nominate their area for a marine sanctuary, so that shipwrecks can be protected.

    I'm sure archies will love it. I would think if NOAA get's enough people to step up and nominate their areas for a marine sanctuary, the next step should be museums with artifacts for tourists visiting to see. Otherwise it's more like political chess games to me.

    "Insitu" keeps their actual work level down to the "pontificating" level too.
