During the week of November 15th, IIC wrapped up ship-board operations for three survey projects that were run concurrently in Canada this survey season. Two of these projects took place in the Arctic, utilizing a traditional survey vessel augmented by an Uncrewed Survey Vessel (USV).
Although USVs are the exciting technology (see the LinkedIn posting from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans below), none of this would be possible without the hard work and dedication of IIC’s hydrographic survey team during extraordinary times. The pandemic meant that our team was onboard for the entire three months in the North! Hats off to another example of the IIC Team doing whatever it takes to get the job done.
