BSEE Studies Arctic Response Challenges

The agency has tested a Geo-Referencing Identification Satellite tag project.

The federal Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement tested a Geo-Referencing Identification Satellite (GRIDSAT) tag project at the U.S. Navy's Ice Camp Sargo, a temporary station on top of a floating ice sheet in the Arctic, as part of Ice Exercise (ICEX) 2016, the agency reported.

The project tested the deployment and communication of the system and left several marking devices on the ice for long-term duration studies.

The extreme conditions in the Arctic create unique challenges to the identification, tracking, and response to an oil spill. The GRIDSAT radio/GPS marking device can be left on an ice floe to track the movement of the floe and entrapped oil for a period of up to nine months.

    The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing. The detector reliably tests a worksite’s atmosphere for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and combustible gases (LEL). Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating. The MGC Simple Plus is also compatible with a variety of accessories, such as Gas Clip Technologies’ new GCT External Pump. Visit gascliptech.com for more information. 3
