The first thing we had to do was install a $25,000 sonar system. This would have been a difficult task in Annapolis let alone Greenland. A sonar of this nature isn’t just a depth sounder, it’s an entire system. The heart of this system is an Odom CV/200, Odom let us borrow a loner unit which was very nice of them considering a CV/200 costs $15,000. We plan on buying this unit if we can raise enough money by the end of the expedition. We also needed a DGPS, a transducer the size of a cinderblock and a new Panasonic Toughbook powerful enough run hydrography software. The software we are using is Hypack, which is $8,000 for a one year license. Hypack sponsored us this year but we will have to pay for it if we want to use the program again next year.
