Remote Sensing, Satellites and UAS


The snow satellite CoReH2O is competing to be the European Space Agency's next Earth Explorer satellite. Norut Tromsø has been involved in the satellite's design.

Norut's unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is back in the air to map the ice around the South Pole.

A joint research program has been launched by Discover Petroleum and Norut.

Special skills are related to signal analysis and image processing, particularly related to:

The hydropower business desire improved methods for calculating the amounts of water that will drain into their reservoirs. Norut IT will develop new methods for remote sensing of snow in the mountains.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) open new frontiers and possibilities within scientific research, resource management, and surveillance. Norut IT tested its newly acquired airplane in Troms September 1st and 2nd.

Land deformations after the earthquake in Bam, Iran Dec. 26th 2003 can be shown with surprising accuracy. Using radar satellite, scientists at Norut IT are able to detect surface displacements in the millimeter range.
