Working on Andros Island, Bahamas Supporting the AUTEC Project

Post Date: May 3, 2019 | Category: General Information

Andros Island, Bahamas

Professional Overseas Contractors -

The U.S. Navy's Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center (AUTEC) is an instrumented laboratory that performs integrated three-dimensional hydrospace / aerospace trajectory measurements covering the entire spectrum of undersea simulated warfare: calibration, classifications, detection, and destruction. Its vital mission is to assist in establishing and maintaining naval ability of the United States through testing, evaluation, and underwater research.

AUTEC is located on Andros Island within the Bahamas, the largest of the 26 inhabited Bahamian Islands. Politically considered a single island, Andros in total has an area greater than all the other 700 Bahamian islands combined.

The land area of Andros consists of hundreds of small islets and cays connected by mangrove estuaries and tidal swamp lands, together with three major islands: North Andros, Mangrove Cay, and South Andros. The land area is as large as the state of Delaware in the United States.

Bahamas is usually associated with tourism, but actually Andros Island is the least-explored island in the chain. From Nicholls Town in the north to Little Creek in the south are 35-40 hotels, motels, resorts, guest houses and lodges (the number varies), with a total of approximately 400 rooms. Tourists are composed primarily of scuba divers, attracted to the barrier reef, Tongue of the Ocean, and the Blue Holes; bone fishing anglers, and those looking for relaxation at a destination that, while off the beaten path, has easy air connections.

Brief History 

During the 1940s and 1950s, the U.S. The Navy's need for a deep water test facility became so apparent that in 1958 the Chief of Naval Operations established an advisory group to determine the location and specifications for testing underwater vehicles, weapons, and weapon systems. As a result of the extensive studies of this group, the Secretary of the Navy in November 1959 directed the establishment of the Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center (AUTEC) under the Bureau of Ships (now the Naval Sea Systems Command) to provide a deep water, test and evaluation facility for making underwater acoustic measurement, testing sonar, and providing accurate underwater, surface and air tracking data on ships and weapons in support of the U.S. Navy's antisubmarine and undersea research and development programs.

    I’m fairly new to this type of employment advertising. My question is how do you verify the potential employers? I’ve also noticed that there are several jobs that have been posted for months and have yet been filled or so it seems. There doesn’t seem to be an efficient follow-up abilty for thge job seeker or notification from the employer. Is there something I’m missing? A different route perhaps in how to go about in doing follow-ups? Appreciate any input. Thank you.

    Interviewed for a job there 4-5 years ago…short flight from Palm Beach International. Didn’t get selected…job is open once again.

    I think they’re looking for someone ‘single’ with no family ties to the mainland, because while there are daily flights, they fill up fast on the weekend…trying to get on it is like playing the lottery. Everyone puts in for it on a Monday, and a lucky few are selected to go home on a Friday.

    If you had a decent boat and lived in Ft. Lauderdale, you could probably get away with going home every weekend, though I wouldn’t recommend doing it every day…you’d be crossing shipping channels in the middle of the night to get to work in the morning.

    The apartment-style living isn’t bad at all…it’s Navy housing…the good kind…single-level efficiencies…short walk to the base, or a drive if you’re on the north end of the island.

    The food in the Navy mess is first class.

    I cannot speak about the type work I would have been doing, but I got an eye-full which I was later told I should not speak of…a few weeks after I got home, by a nice, DoD policeman who read me the riot act.

    I’m thinking they left it up to the ‘civilians’ to choose candidates, and though I was high on their list and a Disabled Vet, the military was looking for someone with more ‘recent’ time in.

    I should not have been there. I should not have seen what I saw. That’s my theory.

    I was brought in by an agent to the local office of the FBI who insisted I was “not in any trouble…we just want to talk to you”.

    Creepy. They took my wallet, keys and belt…sat me in a room with no windows and a camera trained on me on one side of a desk. Started out nice and cordial. “No bright light in the face and cigarette smoke?” I asked, half-joking. Then it got weird.

    DoD starts yelling and screaming at me…interesting guy, he would have been too short to be an MP in the Army, but he took great pride in his badge and his part in getting Osama bin Laden.

    Really. Not kidding.

    Still scratching my head over this one.

    Maybe I’ll apply again, if only to see if he still has his job…and to get a look at the alien autopsy room.
