We propose development, fabrication and initial testing of an autonomous ice station that will host underwater vehicles in ice-covered regions of the Arctic. The ice station will be a hybrid system that will support both vehicle infrastructure and sensor technology, with monitoring capability on, within and below the ice, plus communications, navigation and docking for underwater vehicles. The project is envisioned as a multi-year effort this proposal covers the first stage of the work the design and fabrication in preparation for deployment as early as autumn 2017 or springsummer 2018.
