Arctic Earth Observation and Surveillance Technologies

Multi-platform, multi-sensor technologies for Earth observation, surveillance, and information retrieval in Northern and Arctic regions

The Arctic EO Project:

The Arctic EO project is a strategic technology development project funded by the Norwegian Reserach Council under the Northern Region program. It is a long-term project focusing on the development of new advanced technologies for Earth observation from both satellites and UAS.

Arctic EO Project Objectives

The primary objectives of this project are to conduct education, basic and applied research on new technologies for both large scale Earth observation based on satellite observations, and local scale surveillance using UAS.

The project will develop competence and technology, which should improve our ability to monitor and assess oceanographic phenomena (including ship traffic and pollution), land use and vegetation, sea ice, glaciers and snow covered areas, the Earth atmosphere, and environmental processes in Northern and Arctic regions.

This will in turn aid a deeper understanding of the environmental challenges due to increased industrial and commercial activities in the North (including the Arctic).

The project results will provide the tools needed for decision makers and industry to build a sustainable and safe development and use of the resources and possibilities in the northern areas.

Our main goals are :

·         To create knowledge which can generate new products and services within industrial partners.

·         To develop technology and tools to aid the expansion of industrial companies in the High North in an environmentally sustainable and safe way.

·         To create spin-off effects in form of new services and technologies which would result in commercialization, new high-tech jobs and companies.

·         To elevate educational competence of personnel in research institutions and companies in Northern Norway through organized PhD programs.
