Naval Facility Bermuda, 1954–1995. The US Navy operated a listening post from Tudor's Hill (often now referred to as Tudor Hill), in Southampton, Bermuda from 1954 till the closure of US bases in 1995. It was abbreviated NAVFAC Bermuda. In conjunction with the Argus Island tower, this base remotely monitored SOSUS: sensors designed to listen for submarines moving through the Atlantic. There was some hope that the base would survive the end of the Cold War, and the base closures of 1995. It was thought that it might be adapted to scientific purposes, for the monitoring of whales, but it was closed, instead, along with NAS Bermuda, and the NAS Annex.
