U 576; new research technology

Good morning all,
Sidebar: Juha; appreciate contribution to Boston Tea Party thread. I got sloppy in my acknowledgements.
Above link in re U 576 history and new research technology.
Article about the vessel plus the use of new science and technology, specifically mentioning "complex laser scan".
The mentioned "Pipestone County" off Norfolk, Virginia is probably a mistake.
Good WWII pictures accompany article.
Note the legal aspect: U 576 is German property with custody entrusted to the US.
Article has some links I haven't checked as yet.

One slight addendum. Laser scanning is not a research method, it´s a documentation method.
