Synopsis

Jeremy Robst will talk about the IT systems on board the Sir David Attenborough and the Antarctic Research Stations operated by the British Antarctic Survey. He'll cover the systems they use – both from the business side of running a ship / research station and then the specialised systems they use to do science in the Antarctic.

He'll also talk about the challenges they encounter when operating in an extreme environment and include lots of pictures of Antarctica and wildlife.
