A regular scheduled passenger aircraft will for the first time fly with equipment and high-resolution imaging systems normally used on satellites. Scientists believe this is the start of a new era for collecting environmental data and that the aircraft will also increase safety and emergency response in the Arctic.

Snow

The radar onboard the drone Kraken can measure snow depth, image snow layers and see objects under the snow. Earlier in the spring, Norut demonstrated how drones can contribute to emergency preparedness involving avalanches.

Ice

Many people have wondered who they are and what they are up to, these people who regularly wander across the ice wearing a wetsuit and pulling a small rubber boat.

Arctic Frontiers

The upcoming conference Arctic Frontiers 2018 in Tromsø - Connecting the Arctic - gives several opportunities to get a taste of the ongoing research taking place at Norut. Get the overview here.

Marin plastic pollution

Can knowledge from a container of beach waste contribute to reducing marine waste?

Oil

For the first time, the resources for oil spill contingency and response in Northern Norway will be mapped.

Icebergs is a risk to all ships navigating in the high Arctic. Norut has developed a system for real-time detection and monitoring of sea ice, using UAVs.
