Icefield Instruments was formed in 1990 in response to a demand for glaciological instrumentation and consulting services. Icefield Instruments Inc. is incorporated in the Yukon Territory, Canada.
Icefield Instruments Inc. has the experience and expertise to design, construct, and test a wide variety of instruments for use in extreme environments. We build both standard products (ice coring drill, ice-penetrating radar systems) and custom equipment. Through our work with ice coring technology, in particular AUTOCORE and ultra-clean drill technology, we have expertise in delivering clean samples with extremely low contamination levels. We have experience in sub-glacial water sampling, design for high-pressure environments, design for low-pressure environments (Mars), thermal/environmental extremes, and the use of exotic materials.
Our capabilities cover the complete spectrum of mechanical design, electronic design, software authoring, prototype fabrication, field testing, field services, and commercial production.
