Heading out to remap the now ice-free areas in the Arctic. And updating bathymetric (seafloor) data last surveyed by Captain Cook two centuries ago.

These routes have the potential to significantly shorten transit times between Asia and both Europe and North America, reducing shipping costs and fostering international trade.
