Inuktun Sighting #47: Fish and Frogs and Fittings, Oh My

See the unseen. While operators normally use Inuktun’s multi-mission, modular (IM3) technology to remotely monitor and evaluate confined spaces and hazardous environments, inspecting municipal pipes sometimes produces surprising images. Case in point: our long-time client, Dougness Holdings, has encountered critters, vegetation, and still unknown “things” that just don’t seem to belong. We were fortunate enough to sit down with Dougness owner, Bill Cameron, and discuss some of the things his company has seen over the years.See the unseen.
