Artist's rendition of Alaska Regional Research Vessel

The Alaska Region Research Vessel (ARRV), which will be 242 feet in length, will replace the small, aging R/V Alpha Helix. The ice -strengthened ARRV would operate in the challenging seasonal ice covered Alaskan waters, expanding current capabilities in the region. In addition to providing a platform for training future generations of scientists, researchers on the ship will link to students in distant classrooms through broadband satellite connectivity.
