Scott deploying from Devonport 26 Oct 09
The Royal Navy's advanced deep water survey ship HMS Scott deployed this week in the pouring rain from Devonport, Plymouth, to the Antarctic for the first time.
HMS Scott will be patrolling and surveying the Antarctic and South Atlantic. This is the first time HMS Scott's state-of-the-art sonar suite has been deployed to the Antarctic and it is hoped her work will help deepen understanding of this little-known part of the world and the marine environment.
The ship's other aim will be to maintain the United Kingdom's presence in the region during Austral summer 2009/2010.
