DoD News, Defense Media Activity

Last week, we gave you preview of how researchers aboard the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter HEALY are working on ways to make Coast Guard missions safer. Now, Defense TV is taking you inside the cutter. Defense TV was offered the opportunity to embed with the Coast Guard during the Healy’s first cruise of 2017.

On the latest episode of Armed With Science on Defense TV, we take you on a tour of the Healy with Capt. Greg B. Tlapa and experience the sights and sounds aboard a polar icebreaker.

Stay tuned to Armed with Science for more of Defense TV’s Icebreaker series in the coming weeks.
