The SOI research vessel Falkor has a HQ60 UAV on board. It can be launched from the ship's deck. I wrote to the SOI and suggested the HQ60 be used to take photos at the Electra location: W 172.1575 S 04.4986 in the Orona lagoon. With good surface conditions, a bettor image might be obtained. The Falkor will be doing biological research and not marine archaeology. But SOI might share that confirmation if they get a good image. That would be a feather in the cap of SOI and L3 Technologies- the UAV manufacturer. They haven't answered back. The ship is approaching Honolulu and will begin the Phoenix Islands 2021 expedition in June.
