His communication skills include being a writer, newsletter and magazine editor/publisher, still photographer, video cameraman, video and film producer, and lecturer.

He has considerable experience in several different areas --- ocean technology, electronics, computers, plastics, medical and health care, real estate and others.

Edward C. Cargile was born on November 28, 1939 in San Diego. Cargile

started is life-time experience in diving and the ocean at a young age in 1952. He grew up in Imperial Beach, CA, south of San Diego. Cargile was in the water of the Pacific Ocean, San Diego Bay and the Tijuana Sloughs every moment possible. At the time, the Tijuana Sloughs were pristine and clear. He started underwater photography with good friend Ron Church in 1953 off La Jolla and Mexico.

In the early years of diving, Cargile designed and built most of his own diving and underwater photography equipment.

He went into the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves during high school, going on Active Duty after he graduated. Cargile started college while still in the Marine Corps. He transferred to the Marine Corps Active Reserves

while he attended college full time at San Diego City College. He graduated with an A.A. Degree in Science from San Diego City College in 1960.

Cargile enrolled at San Diego State University, majoring in Physics, with minors in Math and Chemistry.

Early in college, Cargile was a Lifeguard at La Jolla Shores, near Scripps Institution of Oceanography, where he dove with several ocean research groups.

Later in college Cargile was a Test Engineer for San Diego Gas & Electric Company, a Test Engineer for General Dynamics Astronautics on the Atlas/Centaur Missiles, and a member of the Atlas/Mercury Launch Team.

At the end of his fourth year at San Diego State University, he was recalled to Active Duty in the Marine Corps for the Cuban Missile Crisis and became a member of Marine Force Recon. Part of his training was going through modified U.S. Navy UDT Training. Since then, he has gained considerable additional military, commercial and scientific diver training and experience.

As a civilian in 1963, he became a Research Engineer on the Apollo Spacecraft for the Space Division of North American Aviation (which became North American Rockwell and then Rockwell International).

Cargile completed his B.S. Degree in Physics in 1963 at North American University.

In 1964 Cargile was appointed Engineering Supervisor at Rockwell International, in charge of the Apollo Test Data Processing Unit. This included all Apollo Spacecraft testing, data acquisition, processing, presentation, and storage. The experience was later the basis for technology transfer to the ocean industry.

He continued his education, earning a Masters Degree in Systems Management in 1965 from North American University. This Masters Degree Program was related to the Apollo Program, NASA and UCLA.

His secondary responsibility at Rockwell International was doing most of the diving and underwater equipment testing, and being the Corporate Diving Officer.

Cargile’s diving and engineering testing at Rockwell International included the U.S. Navy Target Torpedo System, ASW Weapon Systems, UDT/SEAL Team Diver Transport Vehicles, Diver Ergonomic Test Studies, Mixed-Gas Breathing Systems, Diver Sonar and Pinger Navigation Systems, plus several other classified projects.

Throughout his engineering career, Cargile continued diving, perfecting his underwater photography skills, designing and building diving and underwater photo equipment, and gaining additional diver training.
While at Rockwell International, Cargile’s diver training included Air and Mixed-Gas Diving at the Underwater Technology Institute, and several military and commercial diver programs.

He was an early Diving Instructor with PADI, NASDS and CMAS. For many years Cargile has also been a Commercial Diving Instructor and Military Diving Instructor in various underwater specialties.

When Rockwell International formed the Ocean Systems Operations Division during the mid-1960s, Cargile was asked to join. He was in the Ocean Sciences Department headed by Dr. Andy Rechnitzer. Other members in the Ocean Sciences Department included --- Dr. John Radbill (CalTech graduate and computer programmer), Dr. Bob Ballard (before he led the team to discover the Titanic), Dr. Tony Christianson (who designed several of the Scubapro diving regulators) and Dr. Dick Terry (USC graduate and noted marine geologist).

Cargile was on assignment from Rockwell International to the U.S. Navy UDT/SEAL Teams in 1967-1968. He was an operational member of an 8-man Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) UDT/SEAL Team. The RDT&E Team was organized to test and evaluate the latest underwater systems and equipment, develop advanced underwater combat techniques, and conduct diver performance and physiology studies.

In addition to Cargile being a diving member of the 8-man RDT&E Team, he was responsible for engineering modifications of existing systems, designing new diving equipment for combat in Vietnam, and writing engineering reports. Dr. Bill Vaughn was doing diver performance studies on the RDT&E Team. Cargile worked with Dr. Vaughn in obtaining the diver and vehicle data.

Upon returning to the Ocean Systems Operations Division of Rockwell International, Cargile and fellow diver Jack Harris (UDT Chief, Retired) co-authored the Combat Swimmer Delivery Vehicle Development, 1939-1967 for the Commander, Naval Operations Support Group, Pacific. This recently declassified report was featured in the UDT-SEAL Association magazine, The Blast.

He trained U.S. Navy UDT personnel in the recovery of the Apollo Spacecraft, which Rockwell International designed and developed.

Cargile was Project Engineer, Test Diver and Corporate Diving Officer. He was responsible for all the company divers and the Diving Locker at the Rockwell International Catalina Island Facility near the USC Ocean Research Laboratory. Cargile wrote the Rockwell International Diving Manual.

He became the Test Diver and Project Engineer on the diver transport vehicles developed by Rockwell International.

Cargile was also a Diving Engineer during tests on several other ocean system projects for the company and the U.S. Navy.

Cargile was Pilot, Lockout Diver and Diving Officer on the undersea research deep submersible Beaver IV for Rockwell International. Beaver IV was launched in September 1968. Christening of Beaver IV was by Nancy Reagan (when Ronald Reagan was Governor of California, before he became the U.S. President).

Beaver IV was an advanced deep submersible that could dive to 2,000 feet and lockout mixed-gas breathing saturation divers to 1,000 feet. Beaver IV could mate with an underwater capsule developed by Mobil Oil for seafloor oil completion systems to depths of 2,000 feet. Cargile was the Transfer Engineer from Beaver IV to the Underwater Mating Capsule.

Beaver IV could also mate with U.S. Navy submarines and undersea habitats like Sealab III down to 2,000 feet. This was in support of the Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle (DSRV) and the underwater habitat Sealab III. If Rockwell International had won the DSRV Contract, Cargile was the designated DSRV Submersible Test Pilot for Rockwell International.

Cargile was Pilot of two other deep submersibles, the Submaray and Paulo I (later renamed the Sea Otter)
