    170907-N-PO203-494 ARCTIC OCEAN (Sep. 7, 2017) An Air-Deployable Expendable Ice Buoy (AXIB) is deployed in the high Arctic near the North Pole from a Royal Danish Air Force C-130 aircraft operating out of Thule Air Force Base in Greenland, as part of the International Arctic Buoy Program (IABP). The deployment team, led by the Office of Naval Research (ONR), included personnel from the National Ice Center (NIC), Office of the Oceanographer of the Navy, Environment and Climate Change Canada and the University of Washington. The IABP is a conglomeration of global participants that maintain a network of drifting buoys in the Arctic Ocean that provide meteorological and oceanographic data for real-time operational requirements and research purposes.
