  • Description

    Event flyerDuring the 2018/19 Antarctic season, the Antarctic Gateway Partnership project deployed its Autonomous Underwater Vehicle to the Sørsdal ice shelf.

    Based out of Davis Station, several key challenges had to be met to reach the ultimate goal of surveying the waters at the calving front of the ice shelf, and to survey the cavity beneath the ice.

    The Engineering team will describe the work and developments that led them to be able to accomplish a truly amazing achievement and successfully return the AUV back to Tasmania.
