Monday’s Yomiuri led with a GOJ plan to develop a system to help commercial vessels navigate the Arctic ocean safely, explaining that the equipment will be designed to determine the distance to and depth of icebergs and drift ice using special radar. The data will be combined with other imagery gathered by satellites so as to identify safe routes that will also conserve fuel. Through this scheme, the GOJ is reportedly aiming to secure maritime interests in the area amid accelerated moves by the U.S., China, Russia, and others to do the same.
