Mission duration: 10 days

This mission was conducted by the Nansen Center in September 2013. The Sailbuoy was to keep a specified distance from the ice edge (around 40 km). As the ice edge moved the Sailbuoys waypoint was updated to follow the ice. The Sailbuoy was equipped with different sensors.

The SailBuoy's position was overlaid a satellite image of the area to determine where it was relative to the ice edge and if the waypoint needed updating. The mission was a success, and controlling the Sailbuoys position relative to the ice edge was easily achieved.
