QINSy & Qimera Onboard "Investigator" 

The Franklin Expedition: Mission Erebus and Terror 2015
 

Parks Canada returned to the Arctic in the summer of 2015 to continue unraveling the mysteries surrounding the 1845 Franklin Expedition. With the support of many partners the Parks Canada Underwater Archaeology Team resumed its work.

One team continued the archaeological investigation of the wreck of HMS Erebus, and efforts were productive and successful.

A second team, including the Survey Vessel “Investigator” outfitted with QPS QINSy and Qimera and R2Sonic's Multibeam Echosounder Sonic 2024-UHR continued to search for HMS Terror and, after two weeks of intensive work, the location remains a mystery. However, thanks to this mission, improvements were made in the areas of marine security, navigation, and search and rescue in the Canadian North. 

Explore all the photos and Mission Briefs from the summer of 2015.
