The article reports on Air Development Squadron Eight (VX-8) established by Oceanographic Development Squadron Eight (VXN-8) on 1 July 1967. VX-8 traced its origins to the Atlantic Fleet's Airborne Early Warning Training Unit, which was in 1951 assigned an ongoing airborne magnetic survey program--Project Magnet--to map the earth's magnetic variation. Two additional ongoing projects were assigned to the unit beginning in 1962. Project Birdseye mapped polar ice for the Naval Oceanographic Office using EC-121K/P aircraft. Project Outpost Seascan, also using an EC-121K, sampled hydrographic conditions worldwide for the antisubmarine warfare environmental prediction database.
