    Purpose To assess ship's essential operational equipment and procedures; to conduct emergency drills; to assess ship's equipment necessary to support operations; to test ship's ROV support systems; to conduct multibeam system testing in the vicinity of Veatch Canyon, to conduct sound velocity comparison cast between CTD and XBT; to collect deep-water multibeam sonar, subbottom and singlebeam sonar data; to train new personnel in all mapping data collection processes and procedures; to assess affect of subbottom noise mitigation measures; to verify inventory of spares of all mapping sensors, to test telepresence operations, and to prepare the 2014 readiness report.
