C2 Exploring Iceberg A68a

C2 piloted glider in ice field

New images released today show the UK's National Oceanography Centre launching a robotic underwater glider from the RRS James Cook marking the start of a four-month mission to investigate the massive A68a iceberg in the South Atlantic. In partnership with the British Antarctic Survey, the Oceanids C2 command-control and data management system is being used to pilot the gliders and process the data.
