Racal Pelagos, a unit of the Racal Survey Group of companies, has been awarded a $40 million, four-year hydrographic survey contract
in Alaska by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
This agreement, which continues an existing two-year, $12 million contract awarded
by NOAA in 1998, began work in 1999, which was conducted by Racal Pelagos. During this time the Alaskan-based team, which was supported by an international crew was immersed on a round-the-clock basis for five months - eventually producing 6,276 linear n.m. of data - which generated an area of 158 square n.m. of quality data.
