"A helicopter flies over Arctic ice...

...towards the Applied Physics Laboratory Ice Station (APLS) during an exercise near the 2011 APLS camp north of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, March 18, 2011. Using a digital "Deep Siren" tactical messaging system and a simpler underwater telephone, officials from the Navy's Arctic Submarine Laboratory at the camp were able to help the USS New Hampshire submarine find a relatively ice-free spot to surface and evacuate a sailor stricken with appendicitis."
