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.

New technology makes it possible to use solar cell modules in the High North too.

Arctic Frontiers

Here is an overview of the Norut scientists’ contribution to this year’s Arctic Frontiers.

Norut Alta – Áltá has been allocated funding from the Regional Research Fund for Northern Norway to research how people perceive FeFo’s owner transactions and management.

“If Norway is to succeed, the government must establish a mineral company based on the model of Statoil, preferably based in Narvik,” says Terje Nordvåg of Norut Narvik.

“This goes hand in glove with the national trade and industry policy,” said the Minister of Trade and Industry, Trond Giske, when he opened the Barents BioCentre and new building at the Tromsø Science Park on May 25.

When Norut Narvik and PiteEnergi combine forces to build a solar cell park it will be a win-win situation.

During 24-25th of May 2011, Norut Narvik shall arrange a seminar at Kjeøy Research & Education Center to exchange knowledge on Biohydrometallurgy.

“As we’re thinking the same way, we have agreed to cooperate with Canada on biotechnology,” says Norut CEO Ivan C. Burkow.

Drones from Norut will during a seven-week period map how long range transport of black carbon influences the melting of snow and ice in the Arctic.

NoCry is one of three projects with Norwegian participants leading the way in European regional development – and Norut and Norinnova are participating.

Four research scientists from Norut Narvik are going on an expedition in the Arctic Ocean with the Norwegian Coast Guard.

“We have ambitions to grow further,” says Managing Director Terje Nordvåg. Norut Narvik’s staff has trebled since 2004.
