Down in Fort Lauderdale, I’ve been seeing a KENN Borek Basler doing some sort of patrol on the shoreline at night about 10-20 miles wide at 600 feet about 1 mile offshore. Call sign is AZAZ0909

Any idea what this flight does?

They used to do survey work for a couple of us agencies with a king air, I think they've now switched to the Basler.

They've been involved in LIDAR bathymetric survey around the US coastlines for years. Pretty sure the Basler is one of the platforms they use on that program.

yeah that makes sense, it looked like each subsequent pass on the flight tracker was slightly offset from the last. Thanks for the info

Gren lasers can penetrate the ocean and give depths up to a certain degree
