Bridge of submarine amid ice

The bridge of the USS Hawkbill at Scientific Ice Expedition '98 after breaking through the ice. SCICEX '99 was conducted aboard USS Hawkbill (SSN 666), which was able to travel almost at will under the ice, making it a unique platform for a sophisticated sonar system dubbed the Seafloor Characterization and Mapping Pods (SCAMP).
