SubC Imaging worked with Curtin University and the Western Australian Museum to successfully survey the shipwrecks of Australian warship HMAS Sydney (II) and the German raider HSK Kormoran in the Indian Ocean 200 km west of Shark Bay, Western Australia. The water depth at the site is approximately 2,500 m.

The 1Cam 3D was used in the mission to provide footage of the shipwrecks. The expedition captured unique footage of the wreck sites, providing a much clearer explanation of how HMAS Sydney was destroyed with the loss of everyone on board.
