Our Risk Management team is dedicated to safeguarding our vehicle against potential threats, ensuring a resilient state while being in Antarctica. With a proactive approach, we identify and assess risks, implement robust mitigation strategies, and continuously monitor the progress of our operations. Our focus will be on evaluating environmental constraints, Lifecycle Tests, and preparing for critical failures and emergency scenarios, including anticipating edge cases to ensure the success of our mission.
