The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) called on Affiliated Researchers to assist with the integration of a new sonar and navigation systems onboard their research vessel, Laurentian.

The call from NOAA came in on a Friday afternoon, and our team was on-site setting up their RTK-GPS survey equipment the following Tuesday morning. Our team established control points, completed the collection of needed RTK-GPS data, and demobilized in one day.
