successfully employed these sophisticated technologies to locate, document and recover objects as diverse as the Space Shuttle Challenger and the USS Monitor.Later, as President of Oceaneering's Advanced Technologies Group, Craig led expeditions to locate numerous twentieth century and ancient ship wrecks in virtually all the world's oceans, from the shoreline to 25,000 foot ocean depths.

Subsea Explorers Ian Koblick and Craig Mullen reflect on a successful expedition during the summer of 2015 using the state-of-the-art C-Explorer 3 submarine on Roman era shipwrecks.
This meant we could concentrate on exploring the subsea world without limitation and achieved all our expedition objectives," stated Craig Mullen, co-founder of Aurora Trust Foundation.
Craig Mullen has been a pioneer in exploring and working under the sea for over five decades.
Following three tours with the Navy directing diving, salvage and deep-ocean recovery operations around the globe, he
began what has been a lifelong passion, the exploration of world's great oceans.
At Alcoa Marine, he directed the operations of the R/V Alcoa Seaprobe, the world's only all-aluminum drill-ship configured search and recovery system.
The Seaprobe was capable of locating and recovering objects from 6,000 meters beneath the ocean.
directed the Seaprobe's gathering of the first recognizable photos of the civil war era wreck site of the USS Monitor and pioneered the development of deep-ocean work systems.
In 1980, he co-founded Eastport International and was in the vanguard of the creation of robotic work systems that now routinely work in the great depths of the world's oceans.
directed some of the most complex ocean search and recovery operations including the Space Shuttle Challenger, Korean Airline 007, Air India, South African Airways, TWA 800 and numerous deep water shipwrecks, including the return to the SS Central America.
In 2004, Craig was a co-founder of the AURORA Trust, that made cultural heritage history by discovering over 20 ancient shipwrecks in the Mediterranean Sea over a seven-year period.
