Note(s): During 1992, the manned submersible PC-1204 was renamed CLELIA and upgraded by Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution, Inc. to provide the underwater research community with a moderate-cost, high capability, shallow-water submersible. This paper will discuss the changes made to the electrical and electronics systems to improve the capabilities of the vehicle to perform observations, collect specimens and samples, and obtain qualitative scientific data. The emphasis has been to retain the subsystems that have proven to be robust and reliable, to replace obsolescent subsystems which are difficult to maintain, and to add a number of 1990's technologies to make the CLELIA the most effective manned submersible capable of operations to a depth of 1000 ft.
