USC&GS Patton (ASV-80) was a survey ship that served in the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey from 1941 to 1967.

Patton was built in 1941, presumably by Astoria Marine Company at Astoria, Oregon, which built her sister ship, the survey ship USC&GS Lester Jones (ASV-79), in 1940. She served in the Pacific during her Survey career, including in Alaskan waters.

Patton was retired in 1967.
