Madison operations of the AHSRL were terminated on 2-July-05 as the AHSRL was prepared for shipment to Ellsemere Island, Canada(79.99 N, 85.94 W). The system began operations at Eureka on August 1 with system checkout completed on August 8.

On 9/9/04 the AHSRL was turned off and crated for for air freight shipment to Barrow, Alaska. The AHSRL began Barrow operations as part of the MPACE experiment on 9/24/04. System alignments were completed on 9/29/04. The AHSRL was operated remotely via the Internet until 11/17/04 when the system was shutdown for shipment back to to Madison, WI.
