  • We tested our first Baltic Argo float at the end of October 2016. The tests were conducted in the pool of the Polish Naval Academy in Gdynia, in the Department of Underwater Work Technologies. The tests came out successful, so we are ready for launching the float during the November cruise of r/v Oceania.
