A high precision airborne magnetic survey in September 2017 transformed into a mission for Fang Li, CEO of oceanographic systems provider Laurel Technologies. Using a Flying-Cam SARAH 4.0 UAV platform integrated with Scintrex CS-VL Cesium-Vapor Magnetic sensor and the AARC51 adaptive aeromagnetic real-time compensator from RMS Instruments, a survey was performed over open-ocean near Zhoushan. It located a shipwreck, subsequently identified as the Lisbon Maru, a WW2 Japanese freighter sunk on October 1, 1942. The survey led to Fang's quest to unfold 1834 untold stories belonging to 828 forgotten soldiers behind this ship that sank 76 years ago.
