The development of a Rufli type drill system for electromechanical ice coring, it's use at several locations in the Antarctic and future modifications based on experience during field work are outline. A short video record, taken during the German Antarctic Expedition in 1987 in the Ritscher Hochland and the Ekstrom ice shelf gives an impression of the drill procedure and occurring problems.
