A03 Challenges for unexplored frontiers

We will develop unmanned exploration vehicle technologies to elucidate unknown areas such as the topographic features beneath the ice shelves and the characteristics of seawater, and in order to establish the base.  Meanwhile, we aim to measure the surface shape of the Antarctic sea ice, glaciers, and land areas in high resolution using unmanned aerial vehicles.
