U-505 Submarine: US Navy WAVES Exhibit

Technifex brought a full-size replica of a World War II Communication Center to life at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. Using a patented, optical display technique, Technifex’s effects designers created a ghostly staff of U.S. Navy WAVES going about the business of decoding vital documents. This is the largest display ever built using this unique optical display system. The Communications Center is part of the exhibit featuring a U-505 submarine; the only German submarine captured by the U.S. Navy during World War II.
