We are developing an automated route-planning method for use by our ice-strengthened vessel, the RRS Sir David Attenborough (SDA), which operates as a supply ship and research vessel in Antarctica. Moving towards low carbon science discovery in the polar regions is a major focus of attention in polar operations planning. BAS has adopted the very ambitious carbon reduction target of reaching Net Zero by 2040. Achieving this will necessitate both optimising the fuel and carbon efficiency of the routes travelled by the vessel, given the hazardous conditions in the Southern Ocean, and ensuring that the highest science return possible is achieved on every day of a science cruise. This talk will present the progress we have made so far on the development of a navigation aid for use by the SDA Master and navigation officers, and show how this system will contribute to the overall carbon reduction strategy for BAS Science operations.
