By the late 1990s, Canadian Ice Service (CIS) identified the urgent need for a new forecasting model that could meet the requirements of modern operations. The National Research Council (NRC) undertook a research effort aimed at developing a reliable iceberg drift forecasting model in collaboration with CIS, academia and private consultants.

With the majority of the world's population living along coasts, engineers must consider the effects of waves and water levels, and sometimes ice, when designing coastal infrastructure facilities. These natural forces can cause operational and safety issues, as well as structural damage, with the potential for significant financial consequences. When Baird & Associates (Baird) approached the National Research Council (NRC) in 2004 to undertake physical modeling for a port in Fort Dauphin, Madagascar to assess these risks, the NRC team was up for the challenge.
