Past Field Expeditions
2016 Mission: White Shark!
In October, 2016, after months of testing streaming bandwidth limitations, the team returned to Nautilus Belle Amie, to test several streaming platforms. Using the YouTube, Zoom.us, Skype and SafariLive framework, we completed 4 full broadcasts from the aft deck of the Belle Amie. Dr. Mikki McComb Kobza used a student created laser measuring device to collect data on the size of seven individual sharks. Ocean Lab streamed live into classrooms in Laguna Beach, California, Chicago, Illinois, and Denver, Colorado.

In October, 2015, the team motored 24 hours from Ensenada, Mexico onboard the MV Nautilus, Belle Amie, to try out the streaming capabilities of the KVH satellite communications onboard. Using the SafariLive software framework, the expedition team was able to create limited video interaction onboard. Testing was completed in 4 rounds with streaming capacity limitations identified.
