A few months ago one of RV Investigator’s crew members had the brilliant idea of grabbing his drone before jumping on board for the scientific sea trials.

Then, some of the Marine National Facility support staff got creative with a GoPro and captured on board images and some action shots of equipment being deployed.

The ship looks amazing!

  1. Reblogged this on oceanicexplorer and commented:
    Australia’s CSIRO has a new ship for scientific research and as they say here, it definitely looks amazing in this drone and GoPro footage. Would like to hitch a ride one day to see what their voyages are like

  2. Why do we not have our logo showing on the ship?

    1. Hello John,

      Thanks for your comment.

      The CSIRO logo is on both sides of the funnel of the ship, which is behind the bridge. It might be that these images just didn’t capture that angle of the ship.
