The Sunken Ship

Case Study No 3

DataLAB was contacted by a marine electronics vendor.  They were working with a commercial fishing vessel that had partially sunk on a bar, crossing off the west coast of New Zealand in shallow waters. The vessel had a computer on board that stored vital and valuable GPS coordinates for fishing gear that had just been baited and left offshore. 

The ship had taken on a lot of water and the computer was swamped with sandy and corrosive seawater. The system was delivered to DataLAB and we began by removing the hard drive to see just how far corrosion had set in in the days since the ship took on water. We further inspected the inner chamber of the drive using our specialised positive-pressure clean room environment to see if any sea water had penetrated the drive's internals. 

Our client was lucky.  The outer components of the hardware were a write off but the internal chamber had not been breached…just. Our team were able reconstruct the hardware to a point the drive could be cloned and the vital data saved.  

DataLAB protects client confidentiality.  The details of all entities are withheld from our case studies to protect their identities. For more Case Studies please see the Our Clients page
