The use of air cushion technology for breaking ice has now developed from the experimental state to the point where useful operations are being performed in locations where conventional icebreakers cannot work. Two methods which have been developed are described, and experimental experience of the methods is discussed, with icebreaking results which were realized included in the discussion. Applications to which one of the two methods may be put to use are also described.
